Eva Green never let her role as a Bond Girl typecast her, and, today, the actress is working more than ever.After getting her start in an erotic Bertolucci film and breaking out in 2005's "Casino Royale," Green has played one captivating role after another. When she was 14, Green was hit by the acting bug after seeing Isabelle Adjani, famed French actress, in "The Story of Adele H." (1975). She was very shy and sensitive in her youth, making her parents reluctant to allow Green to act and become vulnerable on stage. Green admitted the atmosphere on the set of "Franklyn" (2008) was strange because her co-star Ryan Phillippe was also very shy. Supported by her parents, the aspiring actress began taking drama courses in Paris and London before attending the American University of Paris, an English-speaking institution. In a BBC interview, Green stated she "picked the really evil roles" at drama school because "it's a great way to deal with your everyday emotions." 13.There's almost no trace of a French accent when she speaks. A long time ago, I did a TV show here also, called Camelot.I've spent two years here now doing Penny Dreadful, so I think I should get an Irish passport," she says. It's the kindest crew I've ever worked with and I'm not just saying that.
Both her parents, and even her agent, hoped she wouldn't take the part. After reading the script and realizing Vesper Lynd (the character) was deeper than most Bond girls, Green agreed to a screen test and received the part. After her breakout role in "Casino Royale," Green became an international sex symbol and topped several "Hot Lists," including being ranked as one of the 100 Sexiest Stars in film history by Empire Magazine. The actress also nearly worked with Lars von Trier, controversial director of films such as "Nymphomaniac" (2014) and "Melancholia" (2011). The actress is a homebody and leads a low-key life, opting to hang at home "with a glass of wine and a good book" instead of partying. She also plays classical music, having studied piano and flute. Green is interested in taxidermy, and collects preserved skulls and insects.
