Early life

Eva Gaëlle Green was born two minutes earlier than her non-identical twin sister, Joy, on 6 July 1980. She is the daughter of French actress and author Marlène Jobert, and Walter Green, a Swedish dentist and occasional actor (Au Hasard Balthazar directed by Robert Bresson).

Green is of Jewish descent through her Algerian-born mother. Green has described herself as “a secular Jew who never attended synagogue as a girl” and feels “like a citizen of the world”. She has described her family as “bourgeois” and has said that her sister is very different from her. Green is naturally dark blonde; she has dyed her hair brown since she was 15 years old. She is the great-granddaughter of French composer Paul Le Flemand of Swedish photographer Mia Green, the niece of actress Marika Green and the matern al first cousin of singer Elsa Lunghini and actress Joséphine Jobert.The surname “Green” [ˈɡɾeːn] is derived from the Swedish word “gren”, which means “tree branch”.

Green was raised in France and attended the American University of Paris, an English-speaking institution. She also spent time between London and Ireland growing up. She was quiet in school and developed an interest in Egyptology when she visited the Louvre at age seven. At age 14, after seeing Isabelle Adjani in The Story of Adele H., Green decided to become an actress. Her mother initially feared that an acting career would be too much for her sensitive daughter, but later came to support her ambitions. Green continued her studies at Cours Eva Saint Paul in Paris and took an acting course at the Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art in London. After that, Green returned to Paris, where she performed in several plays.Green stated that when she was in drama school, she “always picked the really evil roles” because “it’s a great way to deal with your everyday emotions”.


Personal life

Green considers herself “nerdy”. She also says, “When people first meet me, they find me very cold… I keep myself at a distance, and I think that’s why I’m so drawn to acting. It allows me to wear a mask.” She lives alone and, by her own account, leads a low-key life when she is not working. When asked in an interview what people would be surprised to find out about her, she responded, “I guess people would be surprised to find out that I am a bit of a homebody. I do not like clubbing or going to wild parties. After a day of shooting, I love to come home and relax by the fire with a glass of wine and a good book. Boring, huh?”Green has expressed interests in taxidermy and entomology; she collects preserved skulls and insects.

When asked about her preference to play graphic, sexually charged roles, Green described it as “paradoxical” given her self-confessed shyness. She commented humorously, “I don’t really understand why I do that. I need to go through therapy! Green also favours dark, twisted characters, as they allow her to feel liberated. She spoke about her role in Penny Dreadful as, “it’s like I don’t have a corset anymore when I’m playing Vanessa, you know? People will think that it’s terrible to have fun in a show like that. But I do.” However, she has tried to take a variety of divergent roles in order to avoid being typecast.

Green is non-religious Jewish, though she describes herself as “very spiritual” and having complex beliefs about supernatural forces.

Green has expressed interest in returning to theatre. She says she has no plans to work in Hollywood full-time because “the problem with Hollywood is that the studios are super powerful, they have far more power than the directors… [my] ambition at this moment is just to find a good script”.

In 2017, she revealed that Harvey Weinstein made an inappropriate advance during a business meeting but she pushed him off.
