About Eva Green

Eva Green successfully portrayed Vesper Lynd in Casino Royale, sent by the Treasury to supervise James Bond’s access to the millions of dollars that are his stake in the poker game with Le Chiffre (played by Mads Mikkelsen).

Described by Oscar®-winning director Bernardo Bertolucci as “so beautiful it’s indecent”, Green made her film debut in Bertolucci’s critically acclaimed The Dreamers (2003), a triangular love story set against the Paris riots of 1968 starring opposite Michael Pitt and Louis Garrel.

Eva was born 1980 in Paris, France. Her father, Walter Green, is a Swedish dentist who appeared in Au hasard Balthazar (1966). Green studied at the St. Paul Drama School. This was followed by a course at the London Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art (since 2006 absorbed into the Central School of Speech and Drama).

She began her acting career on stage, appearing in 2001 in two plays; “Turceret” directed by Gerard Descartes and “Jalousie En Trois Fax” directed by Didier Long. The latter was highly acclaimed and earned her a nomination for Les Molieres, France’s most prestigious theatre award, in the category of Best Female Newcomer.

In 2004, she starred alongside Kristen Scott Thomas and Romain Duris in Jean-Paul Salome’s French language film Arsène Lupin and, in 2005, she made her Hollywood film debut as the female lead in Ridley’s Scott’s crusade epic Kingdom of Heaven with Orlando Bloom and Liam Neeson.

After the Bond film, Eva starred in The Golden Compass (2007), again opposite Daniel Craig ("Francisco Scaramanga" from TMWTGG, Sir Christopher Lee, also appears in the film).

In 2011, Eva appeared in all 10 episodes of the Irish television series, Camelot, where she portrayed a character named Morgan.

Most recently, Eva portrayed "Angelique Bouchard" in Tim Burton's latest film, Dark Shadows (2012).
