Eva Green talks Penny Dreadful & Sin City: A Dame To Kill For

Sky Atlantic premiered their hottest new TV show, Penny Dreadful, at London’s St Pancras Renaissance Hotel this week.

A frightening psychological thriller series, Penny Dreadful was created, written and produced by the team behind Bond movie Skyfall: three-time Oscar-nominated writer John Logan and Oscar-winning director Sam Mendes.

In Penny Dreadful, some of literature’s most famously terrifying characters – including Dr Frankenstein, Dorian Gray and iconic figures from the novel Dracula – become embroiled in Victorian London. The series weaves together these classic horror origin stories as the characters grapple with their monstrous alienation.

Flicks And The City attended the show’s premiere and spoke to its stars including Eva Green (Casino Royale).

Check out our video to see Eva Green talk about playing the mysterious fortune teller Vanessa Ives in Penny Dreadful, whether she’s as fearless as Vanessa in real life, how we get to know her character over the course of the show, and what we can expect from her role in upcoming movie Sin City: A Dame To Kill For.

Penny Dreadful starts on Sky Atlantic on Tuesday 20 May.
