They are few to claim to have played in 300: The birth of an Empire and to have a career. Eva Green is one of these miracles.
This rescue is largely due to the Penny Dreadful series , a great success having had the right to three seasons and soon a spin-off which has just been revealed in a creepy trailer . Already spotted by Tim Burton in Dark Shadows , Miss Peregrine and particular children and more recently Dumbo , she burst the screen in 2019 with the Proxima by Alice Winocour , an ultra-realistic drama on the theme of space conquest. After the conclusion of Penny Dreadful , she knew how to continue to make a name for herself .
So, she just found a new series to take over, a mini-series to be exact. In The Luminaries , described as a love story interspersed with suspicious murders in New Zealand , Green will play the owner of a brothel named Lydia Wells. She will be accompanied by Eve Hewson ( The Knick ), Marton Csokas ( Loving , Equalizer ) and Himesh Patel ( Yesterday and soon Tenet ). Produced and broadcast by the BBC, the series is adapted from the novel Les Luminaires by its author, Eleanor Catton, as well as Claire McCarthy , director on Ophelia , not yet released.
It was the actress’s official Instagram account that revealed this teaser, a priori preliminary to a real trailer planned for the coming days .
Aesthetically quite pleasant, these first images suggest a good use of natural New Zealand decorations and an atmosphere that fits very well with the year in which the plot takes place, in 1866. The Luminaries indeed deals with the colonization of the land of hobbits by the British greedy for wealth. The whole thing will take place in six episodes and has just been filmed . For the moment, no date of diffusion was announced , that it is in the United Kingdom or in France. But we should soon know more.
