Happy Birthday to Eva Green

Casino Royale Green

Happy Birthday to Eva Green!

Casino Royale Green Craig

Green was a Bond girl at the age of 26 opposite Daniel Craig in Casino Royale (2006).  As it turned out, it was that film that helped her make a name for herself.

Dark Shadows Depp Green

6 years later she became a witch who condemned Johnny Depp to be a vampire in her 10th film, the dark comedy Dark Shadows (2012).

Eva has proven her ability as an actress.  She will appear in 2 major sequels on the horizon, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (2014) and 300: Rise of an Empire (2014).

Today Eva Green turns 33 years old.

It seems as if she has a very promising career ahead of her.  I’m looking forward to seeing what she does next.
