|Eva Green in Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children|
They may star in garbage, but they can sometimes outperform the pros.
This Monday marked the 35th birthday of actress Eva Green. In general, her very presence in films and TV shows like Penny Dreadful fill me with anticipation. She is among the most interesting actresses currently working today. Everything she does has at least one scene of amazing physicality and dedication that makes you realize how fearless she is. At times, she outclasses those that are multiple Oscar-winning performers with demented enthusiasm. Even then, her actions aren't used as a gimmick, but something more complex. She is defined by her confidence and sexuality, using it artfully to lure us in to her twisted fantasy. It makes oddly more attractive.
