Poised, mysterious and utterly composed, Vanessa is a seductive and formidable beauty full of secrets and danger. She is keenly observant -- clairvoyant even -- as well as an expert medium. Her supernatural gifts are powerful and useful to those around her, particularly Sir Malcolm, but they are also a heavy burden. Her inner demons are very real to her and everyone around her, and they threaten to destroy her relationships, her sanity, and her very life.
Described by Bernardo Bertolucci as, "so beautiful it's indecent," Eva Green is one of the most intriguing actresses today. Born in Paris, she made her debut in Bertolucci's critically acclaimed THE DREAMERS, where she played the lead role of Isabelle. The film, set against the backdrop of the '68 Paris student riots, also starred Michael Pitt and Louis Garrel. Green has most recently starred in Tim Burton's DARK SHADOWS playing Angelique Bouchard opposite an all-star cast including Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Helena Bonham Carter.
Green's film credits are extensive. One of her most memorable roles remains that of Vesper Lynd in the highly successful James Bond feature CASINO ROYALE. Directed by Martin Campbell and produced by Barbara Broccoli and Michael Wilson, the film's story is based on Ian Fleming's first novel about the 007 spy and introduced Daniel Craig in the title role.
Green will next be seen in the SIN CITY prequel SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR. In this, she stars as femme fatale Ava Lord living amongst some of Sin City's deadliest residents played by Josh Brolin, Mickey Rourke, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Green is playing the lead role of Artemesia in 300: RISE OF AN EMPIRE, the prequel to the epic 300.
Green recently starred as Susan opposite Ewan McGregor in PERFECT SENSE, which was well received at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival. Green also played lead character Miss G in CRACKS directed by Jordan Scott and also starring Imogen Poots and Juno Temple. Green played Rebecca alongside Matt Smith and Lesley Manville in WOMB; and starred in Gerald McMorrow's FRANKLYN.
In 2005, Green made her Hollywood debut as the female lead in Ridley Scott's KINGDOM OF HEAVEN, in which she played Sibylla, opposite Orlando Bloom and Liam Neeson. This was followed by a performance in Chris Weitz's HIS DARK MATERIALS: THE GOLDEN COMPASS. Green played Serafina Pekkala, the queen of the witches, alongside Nicole Kidman, Daniel Craig, and Dakota Blue-Richards. She also starred in Jean-Paul Salome's French-language film, ARSENE LUPIN. Her most prominent television credit includes her starring role as Morgan in CAMELOT, an epic television adaptation of the classic Arthurian legend.
Green began her career on stage in 2001. She starred in TURCARET directed by Gerard Deshartes and JALOUSIE EN TROIS FAX directed by Didier Long, for which she was nominated for Les Molieres (2002) in the category "Revelation Theatrale Feminine."
