Biography
Eva Gaëlle Green (Swedish pronunciation: [ˈgʁeːn]; born 5 July 1980) is a French actress and model. Green performed in theatre before making her film debut in The Dreamers (2003). She achieved greater fame for her parts in Kingdom of Heaven (2005) and the James Bond film Casino Royale (2006), for which she won a BAFTA.
She was considered for the lead female role in Un Secret (2007) before it was played by Cécile de France.
She was initially approached for the female lead in Lars von Trier's controversial film Antichrist (2009). According to Trier, Green was positive about appearing in the film, but her agents refused to allow her. The unsuccessful casting attempt took two months of the film's pre-production process. Anglo-French actress Charlotte Gainsbourg was cast in the role.
Green starred in the first season of Starz's series, Camelot, as the sorceress Morgan le Fay. Green stated, "This is such an iconic story and you have 10 episodes to explore a character. It's not a girlfriend role that you could have in a movie. It's a real ballsy character. She has some guts."
In February 2011, Green was cast as Angelique Bouchard in Tim Burton's film adaptation of Dark Shadows.
