French actress Eva Green has said that her role in the James Bond franchise has helped make her more “bankable”.
“It was a blessing definitely,” Green told the BBC after the screening of her latest film Cracks at the London Film Festival.
“It brought me luck and it was commercial, but people liked it and now I’m a bit more bankable – which is good.”
Green starred as Vesper Lynd alongside Daniel Craig in 2006’s Casino Royale.
She said that even three years on she was asked about her Bond role all the time.
In Cracks, she plays a charismatic teacher at a girls’ boarding school in 1930s England.
The big screen drama is directed by Jordan Scott – the daughter of director Sir Ridley Scott, who directed Alien, Bladerunner and Gladiator.
Based on Sheila Kohler’s novel set in South Africa, Cracks is due on general release in the UK in December.
Jordan Scott, daughter of Ridley (Blade runner, Thelma & Louise, Gladiator), has presented her confident debut movie Cracks during the course of the 53rd London Film Festival, accompanied by her father and her cast, including the stunning Eva Green. The story is set in 1930s England in an isolated all-girls boarding school. In the austere institution (the church hymns, the dark uniforms, the severe bare landscape) an unconventional teacher, Miss G (a superb Eva Green), brings a touch of glamour and emancipation. Her team of girls is faithful and adoring, until the arrival on a new student, the aristocratic Spaniard Fiamma (Maria Valverde), and the balance is irremediably flawed.
Watch it here now!!!
Thanks to k. for the heads-up.
Eva Green was another star gleaming on the red carpet thanks to her eye-catching evening gown. She arrived at the London Film Festival for the premiere of Cracks wearing this sequinned number by Donna Karan. Although the claret colour isn’t complimented by Eva’s tomato red lip, it’s got glamour written all over it.
Vote for Eva if you think she wore this dress bettern than model Iman.
More later… 😉
Update: Added a few more!
Update 2: Added tons more. 😉
Eva Green attended the London Film Festival screening of Jordan Scott’s film “Cracks” this Sunday.
The period drama, set in a 1930s girls’ boarding school in England, stars French actress Eva Green as the charismatic school swimming coach Miss G and Juno Temple and Imogene Poots as two of the girls in her team. The film, based on Sheila Kohler’s novel, is a dark tale of a girls’ clique that is thrown into disarray by the arrival of a mysterious Spanish pupil played by María Valverde.
Marlène Jobert, at 68, was voted the “ideal grandmother” according to the French.
Quirky, gothic, witty and undeniably beautiful, Eva is bound to appear in lists like this for years to come, if only for playing the woman who broke James Bond. The fact that she’s French only adds to her appeal, but to be honest, just look at her – as director Bernando Bertolucci put it, she’s “so beautiful, it’s indecent”.
Most alluring as… Vesper Lynd. Do you remember that purple dress? Of course you do.
Interests include… Collecting art, visiting museums and playing the flute.
From yesterday. 😉
And new related clippings thanks to Lorna! 🙂
Last night was the ‘Inauguration Cocktail Party’ for the Boutique Launch, which Eva attended along with Juliette Binoche, Jacqueline Bisset, Lily Cole, Virginie Ledoyen and others. It’ll be the largest in Europe and one of fifteen international boutiques offering exclusive collections and other fancy stuff. 😉 But not just that: Despite the goodies you can buy there they’ll display original art work from “Montblanc’s Cutting Edge Art Collection”. 🙂
UPDATE: Added 38 new HQs.
Happy new month, everyone! A big thank you goes out to mata as usual! 😉
Thanks to eden for the heads up on these!
One is a lovely MontBlanc video promoting “Signature for Good” (filmed in Hamburg, Germany, judging by the dress Eva is wearing), and the other two are from the Toronto International Film Festival and include – you guessed it – several scenes from “Cracks”. 😉
