Eva Green plays the beautiful woman who captures James Bond's heart in Casino Royale.
The 26-year-old actress plays Vesper Lynd, an accountant working for the treasury who is sent to keep a close watch on the government money that Bond -- played by Daniel Craig -- is using in a high stakes poker game.
After drama school in Paris, Eva landed some stage work in France before director Bernardo Bertolucci cast her in The Dreamers alongside Michael Pitt and Louis Garrel.
She then won the part of Sibylla in Ridley Scott's epic Kingdom of Heaven, opposite Orlando Bloom, and will soon start filming His Dark Materials: The Golden Compass, playing Serafina Pekkala, the witch.
