Eva Green

On Euphoria

“(It’s) a love story between two sisters. (It’s) intense, very meaty and very raw.”

“The theme is difficult, and the film is really… Swedish. It’s Alicia who sent me the script. We share the same agent, who thought we had a similar way of working.”


On her character Emilie

“It’s wonderful. It’s very intense. I’m also nervous. It’s a character I’ve never played. It’s somebody whoo’s kind of insecure. It’s also a love story with a sister, a very complex story, very Swedish, fucked up. It’s beautiful.”

“It’s not a very sexy character.”


On shooting in the German Alps

“I’ve been there before. It’s absolutely amazing, some of the landscapes are straight from a fairy tale. [This location] is in the middle of nowhere. I don’t know what it’s going to be like.”


On working with Charlotte Rampling

“I’m scared. I’m totally scared. I think I’ll be very intimidated. It’s wonderful. I’m so happy she’s doing this.”

Critics on Eva Green’s performance

Stephen Saito, The Moveable Fest

“Green, who rarely gets to be seen so vulnerable, is especially affecting as the dying Emily, ferocious to have a measure of control over her death that she hasn’t had while living.”

Pat Mullen, Paste Magazine

“Vikander and Green are excellent together and have a natural bond that helps Langseth’s subtle direction bring the film to a deeply cathartic climax. Euphoria was a moving and life-affirming experience.”

Thomas M. Sipos, Hollywood Investigator

“Charles Dance and Eva Green offer the strongest performances, though they have the advantage of dying. All the cast is great. The film is well edited, excising any useless exposition, aimless chitchat, or pointless scenes.”

Kyle Saubert, Allusions of Grandeur

“Alicia Vikander and Eva Green are both great here, and you can definitely feel their sisterly bond at times. There’s plenty of baggage to sort out during their emotional trip, and both bring their respective A-games to do just that.”
