She cemented her fame after playing Bond girl Vesper Lynd in Casino Royale (2006). The role earned her a BAFTA Rising Star Award and Green has indeed been on the rise since then. She has come to be a frequent collaborator with award-winning filmmaker, Tim Burton and there have been rumors flying around that the two are even a romantic pair… more on that anon.
Let’s discuss everything there is to know about her from her early years in the industry to her very private romantic life.
Eva Green Bio (Wiki), Age
Eva Gaëlle Green was born on the 6th of July 1980 in Paris, France to Walter Green and Marlène Jobert. Green hails from multiple ancestries including Jewish, Breton, Swedish, and Algerian. Both of Green’s parents were actors with her mom Marlène Jobert recording more success than her dad.
Eva Green, at intervals in her life, grew up in Paris, London, and Ireland. She was a very shy and introverted kid, often spending time alone indoors. The young girl got inspired to try acting at the age of 14 after watching The Story of Adele H., a 1975 historical French film. Her decision frightened her mom who was wary of her very sensitive daughter getting the huge exposure that comes with acting. Green has explained to the media that it was her quietness that made her chose acting as it allowed her to wear a mask.
The talented actress attended the English-speaking American University of Paris and studied acting at St. Paul Drama School in Paris. She also trained at Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art in London. Green began her career in Paris theaters before landing her debut film role as Isabelle in The Dreamers. She earned much critical praise for the role opening the doors to a career that quickly made her an international star.
Other films she has played in since then include The Golden Compass as Serafina Pekkala, Perfect Sense as Susan, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For as the character Ava Lord and as Colette Marchant in Dumbo.
When Eva Green came to the world, she was accompanied by a twin. Two minutes after she was born, her fraternal twin sister Joy Green followed. Eva has described her sister to be very different from her. The difference is not just in character but in looks as well. Eva and Joy are unidentical. Joy Green studied business in college and now resides in Normandy, France with her Italian count husband. Eva’s twin sister has a thing for horses and rears them in Normandy. The Green sisters were born with natural dark blonde hair, however, Eva had hers’ dyed to black since she was 15 years old.
Boyfriend, Is She Married?
Eva’s often calm and reserved acting roles come naturally to her as the actress is in real life a very reserved and somewhat secretive person. This is a personal trait that doesn’t sit well with the media who are ever prying into the personal lives of celebrities.
Is She Married? many of her fans wonder. As far as we know, the smokey-eye loving actress is yet unmarried.
Luckily for us all, Green has once spoken publicly about her romantic life. In her interview with GARTH PEARCE, Green narrated how she often gives everything when she falls in love and how relationships require so much hard work, especially after the early stages when the passion wanes.
In the same interview, Eva Green spoke of her experience while dating fellow actor Yann Claassen during the time when she was filming her 2003 film, The Dreamers. She narrated how Claassen would get jealous of her when she got a new job and how she got tired of him speaking about his’ when she had none. According to the actress, their relationship lasted only for a few years. Green concluded the interview by hinting that it is sometimes better to be single.
Though Green has not spoken about her love life since then, reports surfaced that she began dating her Kingdom of Heaven co-star, Marton Csokas in 2005 and were together until 2007.
Green’s biggest relationship rumor and perhaps the most shocking is her link with Tim Burton. She starred in her first Burton movie Dark Shadows in 2012 and the two have remained suspiciously close, and have even been spotted going out on dinner dates together. However, sources told W Magazine that Eva was only Burton’s new muse and nothing more. As expected, Green has not made any comments about the rumors.
