“A film can be big or small, I have to just fall in love with it. To connect with the character, the script, and the director. Sometimes they say to you, ‘You should do that for your career; it’s a big thing, people will go and see it,’ but I wouldn’t be able to, because my heart wouldn’t be in it. I would drive people quite mad.”

Happy Birthday Eva Gaëlle Green!
