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.
