“We started off something in Casino Royale. We had a great storyline, we had a great book, we had a novel by Ian Fleming that was solid and had a love story in it — a really strong love story. And Eva Green played this great part, a wonderful performance, and when it came around to shooting this movie it was like, we can’t just push that aside. We have to develop that; we have to tie up the loose ends here. And that’s what Quantum of Solace is about — it’s him finding his quantum of solace. He’s not on a vendetta. He’s not after revenge. He’s after finding his place.”

Inside the brand new issue of the Italian VANITY FAIR #45 12-11-08 there is a full page size photo of Eva Green (see the preview). If anyone can donate a scan, please email me! Francesca kindly sent me a scan! Thank you!
Starting next week I’ll be taking a break for two weeks. So, during this time, there’ll be most likely no updates. I will however ask a dear friend of mine to moderate the comments, and, maybe, upload new pictures of Eva attends a new super important event. If she takes a little longer to moderate the comments than I usually do, please be patient. By the way, sometimes links go into the spam folder. So if you’re a legit member with a legit link and your link wasn’t added to the comments page, leava a friendly comment without links saying that you’ve sent another one with links. This way we’ll look into the spam folder. I may still pop up to say hello during my absence, but it’s not sure yet. Anyway, keep visiting, chatting here in the comments section, browsing the site, etc.
But I’ll still be around until next week.
Please welcome our newest affiliates: Summer-Glau.net and Twilight-Media.net!
I know that not everyone likes “Twilight” here but some do. A good friend of mine’s just opened this fansite today, so I’m posting her link here to support her and let the world know about her brand new site.
The actress, who is Montblanc’s Ambassador since 2007, has accepted to pose once again for the famous brand.
The new campaign, that aims to promote the jewelry and watches collection, was shot by photographer Ellen von Unwerth, who succeeds Paolo Roversi.
The photos were shot in Milan and each photo of this series is followed by the slogan: “Montblanc. A Story to Tell.”
The campaign will be launched on November 3rd.
It seems like Vanity Fair and the German mag Gala launched it before everybody else… Click here and here.
And a brand new tiny preview thanks to Olga Iv:
Thanks to our lovely and talented mata!
Lola informs us that there’s a new Vesper related clip of “Quantum of Solace” available for viewing online. Just forward to 1:00, it’s about 50 seconds long, and even in a tiny photo, Eva looks divine!
“Interview” Scans thanks to Mycah and Clippings from 2008 thanks to Lorna and Lola!
“A lot of the films now are more focused on the visuals than on the actors. I think all directors should go to drama school.”
She might have admitted to Vogue magazine back in January that she’s somewhat of a fashion-phobe, confessing that she’s “too impatient” to shop, but it’s a sentiment that doesn’t seem to extend to the red carpet for Bond girl Eva Green.
“When I’m at an event, I like to be an eccentric dresser,” the French actress – a favourite, no less, of Karl Lagerfeld – tells this week’s YOU magazine. “I will just keep wearing what I like.”
Indeed, Green’s ties with the fashion world just keep on getting stronger. She’s currently the ambassador for Montblanc jewellery and watches – a gig, she reveals, that suits her perfectly because she can bring her own personality to it.
“They are very human – they are interested in you. There’s a real dialogue, which is very rare,” she says of the label.
Busy Eva!!! Today she attended the closing ceremony of the Middle East International Film Festival (MEIFF) in Abu Dhabi, in the United Arab Emirates. Some 70 movies including feature and short films and documentaries competed for the Black Pearl Awards with prizes totalling more than one million dollars, which according to organisers is the world’s largest purse for film awards. She was wearing a green traditional Arabic dress (Abayah).
EDIT: More photos were added at this very moment (10/20).
This specific update is all Lola related! 😛 First of all, she kindly sent us scans from You magazine featuring the article and some of the photos that I posted here yesterday. Secondly, she sent us her own photos from the premiere of “Franklyn”, including one of Miss Green herself. Thank you Lola! I’m sure that all other appreciators of Eva and her work will enjoy your contributions! 😉
Last but not least, thanks to everyone who commented here or sent emails thanking and congratulating me for the work on this site. It definitely means a lot. As you know EGW has been around since 2004 and has supported Eva’s career since basically the beginning, way before she became a “Bond girl”. It was always meant to be an informative, complete, professional and yet friendly resource on Eva Green. And I’m glad to see that you enjoy my hard work and that I’ve achieved my goal. I’m a big cinema appreciator, and I admire Eva’s acting talent and refreshing personality. But EGW is most and foremost a hobby (one that I love, of course) for which I get absolutely no financial gain, so I’m happy to know that you guys and girls appreciate what I’m doing here, and that you give me so much positive feedback, comments, and contributions!
She made her debut as a naked nymph, says she’s better looking than Charlize Theron and that Carla Bruni dresses like a granny – and turned down the Bond-girl role when it was first offered to her. No wonder Hollywood doesn’t know what to make of the gothic, bewitching French actress Eva Green
By Maureen Paton
After arriving on the movie scene as a naked nymph at the centre of a ménage à trois in Bernardo Bertolucci’s 2003 film The Dreamers, she made her name as the double agent Vesper Lynd who broke Daniel Craig’s heart in his 007 debut Casino Royale, before going on to play the flying sorceress Serafina Pekkala in the 2007 film of Philip Pullman’s The Golden Compass.
Such roles were perfect for the witchy beauty of this enigmatic French actress with the long dark hair and kohl-rimmed blue eyes, who was a 007 heroine every bit as bold as Bond.
The photos are gorgeous, but they seem to think that Ewan McGregor is still starring in “Franklyn”…
Thanks to Riikka for the heads-up! 😉
