In Jaguar's global campaign for its first fully-electric car, the I-PACE, Eva Green, accompanied by a computer-generated jaguar, mimes the femme fatale: "It's just electricity. Nothing to be afraid of". Author Craig McLean and photographer Rebecca Miller met the French actor behind the scenes of the commercial shoot.
Throughout her film career, Eva Green has been a strong personality who likes to question the status quo. Her career skyrocketed ever since her debut in The Dreamers (2003), a typically provocative art house film by Bernardo Bertolucci. The Frenchwoman's international breakthrough came with Ridley Scott's Kingdom of Heaven (2005), followed by Casino Royale (2006), in which she took on the role of Vesper Lynd, who wraps the legendary secret agent – here played for the first time by Daniel Craig – around her finger.
That afternoon in a London film studio, she made herself comfortable on an elegant antique sofa surrounded by stuffed animals – taxidermy is a special hobby of hers – and greenery: a beautiful ensemble that creates an allegory for her own wild nature.
