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.

Eva Green and Marton Csokas

French actress, Eva Green, right, and partner, New Zealand actor Marton Csokas, arrive for the London Film Festival world premiere of the film, Franklyn, Thursday Oct. 16, 2008, London. The film traces the fates of four characters, Jonathan Preest played by Ryan Phillippe, an atheist vigilante, young artist Emilia played by Eva Green, Milo played by Sam Riley and Gulf War veteran Peter, played by Bernard Hill.

Former Bond girl Green was asked whether she was feeling nostalgic over Bond now that his latest adventure “Quantum Of Solace” was about to hit cinema screens. She said: “I have heard it’s brilliant.”

Eva looks amazing. I swear, I think she could wear a paper sack and no makeup and still be ridiculously beautiful. I like what she’s wearing. It looks fresh and young. And Sam Riley… so pretty and sexy! :heart:

By the way, according to Miss Green’s management, there are no plans to announce yet. “Cracks” will probably launch at Cannes. But we’ll keep you posted.

While you’re visiting, please support, spread the word, tell your friends about it and visit our dear friend mata’s fansite: XFilesMedia.com, for news and lots of photos on the show’s stars: Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny. An awesome fansite that deserves to get known! 😉

And now a “Quantum of Solace” news thanks to Lola. 😉

It’s briefer than a Bond chat-up line, but a clip of footage featuring Daniel Craig and Giancarlo Giannini discussing Vesper Lynd has been posted on the Interweb, and at this point, we’ll take anything!

Thank you spot! 😉

As mentioned here before, Eva Green plays a schoolteacher in “Cracks”. “It’s quite a dangerous story, there’s a lot of taboos, I play a swimming team teacher who seduces a student,” she said. She’s hoping the film, directed by Jordan Scott (Ridley Scott’s daughter) and set in the thirties, will make the final selection for Cannes next May. “Cracks” doesn’t have a scheduled release date yet.

So here is our awesome “Franklyn” Filmography Page thanks to Katharina and George for their equally awesome help!

It seems like Miss Green is having a busy and fun month. She’s managed to attend yet another event (with her black boots in feet) when nobody was seeing: “The Norman Conquests” Gala at the Old Vic in London.

Thanks Lorna for the heads-up!

Thanks to our friend mata for sending in a brand new totally gorgeous Montblanc ad featured in the German magazine Gala.

Translation by mata: “To reflect, to take the time and be inspired by life, to watch people, their behaviour, their gestures. There’s nothing of greater importance for an actor.”

Which Montblanc ad is your favorite so far?

Gerald McMorrow, 38, director, Franklyn

Franklyn is pretty much an urban fairytale. It’s about four different characters in London, all totally disconnected but who end up together in the end. One of them, played by Eva Green, is an art student and is doing projects that are increasingly more complex and deadly.

Milo, played by Sam Riley, is a heartbroken thirtysomething, who has just gone through a divorce and is desperately trying to find his way back to purity. Ryan Philippe plays a detective on the streets of Meanwhile City, a city governed by religious fervour. It’s almost medieval! They were an absolute pleasure to work with, all three of them were incredibly helpful and made my life easier.

London is quite an amazing place where a lot of very strange things happen. I used an atypical and off-kilter background, and told a story that wouldn’t normally be told. The film was set around some tricky locations but we managed to shoot it.
