Miss Peregrine’s Eva Green talks social media & roles for women with The Edit

As soon as I started writing about Eva Green, I find myself changing the font to ‘Century Gothic’.

The otherworldly Miss Eva covers the latest issue of The Edit, Net-A-Porter’s online magazine. She is promoting her new movie, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, directed by Tim Burton. She will be leading a strong cast, including Samuel L. Jackson and Judi Dench.

The film is based on Ransom Riggs’ bestseller about a boy who discovers an abandoned orphanage, run by the mysterious Miss Peregrine.  Eva told The Edit how much she loved playing a character defined by her devotion to her students, instead of being the “love interest”.

Just don’t expect her to Instagram her red carpet looks; Eva shared that she hates social media and selfies! It seems we will just have to content ourselves with the photo shoot she did for The Edit instead.

Eva has worked with Burton before, in 2012’s Dark Shadows. The French actress certainly fits the strong, beautiful imagery and the cool/creepy vibe of the director’s movies.

Although Dark Shadows paled in comparison to Burton’s earlier classics like Beetlejuice, I’m looking forward to Miss Peregrine. I haven’t read the book, but it sounds similar to the Lemony Snicket novels, which led to an underrated movie starring Jim Carrey. (A Netflix series is now in production with Neil Patrick Harris.)

For anyone mourning the end of Penny Dreadfulyou can catch Eva in Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, out September 30 in the UK and USA.
