Eva Green talks Dark Shadows

Exclusive: Tim Burton's witch speaks

 

 

Dark Shadows released a trailer to near-unanimous applause yesterday, and if it has left you hungry to know more about Tim Burton's latest, look no further than the new issue of Total Film magazine.

We went on set of the gothic soap opera, and you can read a full report in the new issue.

To tide you over though, here are some tidbits from our chat with Eva Green who makes her Burton debut as Angelique, one of the most seductive screen witches in some time.

On her character, Green told us: "Tim never real treated her like a 'baddie' baddie. She's kind of a damaged character. I think I could identify with her because all the bad things she does comes from the incredible love she has for Barnabas, who broke her heart.

"She's a great character: very sarcastic, very irreverent, a great, dark sense of humour. I called her a 'ballsy Barbie'."



And when we asked about working with Johnny Depp, Green said: "He's a gentleman. He's intense in a nice way - he has very intense eyes in this film. They see right through you.

"He's not afraid of taking risks, you know… He's not afraid about going over the top."

Dark Shadows opens on 11 May 2012.
