Eva Gaëlle Green (born 5 July 1980) is a French actress and model. Green performed in theatre before making her film debut in 2003 in Bernardo Bertolucci’s controversial film, The Dreamers. Green quickly achieved greater fame by appearing in Ridley Scott’s Kingdom of Heaven (2005).
Green’s performance was very well received by critics, and many considered her to be one of the best Bond girls of all time.  That same year, Green was awarded the BAFTA Rising Star Award.
Since 2006, Green has starred in many independent films, including Womb, Perfect Sense, and Cracks, a film directed by Ridley Scott’s daughter, Jordan Scott. However, she has maintained a high-profile by appearing in The Golden Compass, the television series Camelot, and, most recently, by playing Angelique Bouchard in Tim Burton’s big-screen adaptation of Dark Shadows.
