Eva Green Talks DARK SHADOWS

Actress teases details on her character and describes Burton’s vision for the movie.

Talking to MTV, Eva Green (‘Casino Royale,’ ‘The Dreamers’) revealed how her character in Tim Burton’s big screen version of ‘Dark Shadows’ will be a far different version to what fans know from the 60’s gothic soap opera ‘Dark Shadows.’

The actress, who recently signed on to play the “powerful witch” Angelique says, “I haven’t seen the TV series, but from what I’ve seen on the Internet, it’s very different. My character is very different. She’s American, blonde, cool, in the ’70s. She is this sexy witch, very powerful in town, she’s very cool. She has many faces.”

Burton stalwart Johnny Depp previously revealed that his character, vampire protagonist Barnabas Collins, will remain very similar to the one in the 60’s tv series.

Green also decribe Burton’s approach with the movie, saying “It’s something that he’s never done, I think. It’s much more focused on the actors. It could almost be a play…The script is very powerful and funny. [Angelique’s] relationship with Barnabas, that ‘Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf’ relationship, very love-hate — it’s very funny.”
