The French actress recently finished filming the new movie Dark Shadows alongside Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter.
Eva was thrilled to work with the gothic director and has been a fan of his work for years.
"Tim Burton is a filmmaker and a painter that I worship,” she said in an interview with French publication L'Express. “I visited, I don't know how many times, his exhibition at the MoMA, New York City. It will be shown soon in Paris. When he called me, I was so delighted.”
However, the Casino Royale star admitted she struggled with the first few weeks of filming. Eva was intimidated by Hollywood stars Johnny and Michelle Pfeiffer.
“The day after, I started to put a lot of pressure on myself,” she confessed. “I am always anxious before shooting - this time, I was petrified. The first two weeks were really difficult. I was fazed by Johnny Depp, and, most of all, by Michelle Pfeiffer, who plays my rival in the movie. Tim believed in me and he did everything to make me feel comfortable. Finally, it was the most beautiful shoot of my life."
Dark Shadows is an adaptation of a sixties American TV show that followed a family of vampires and witches. Eva plays Angélique Bouchard, a powerful with who is driven by her love for vampire Barnabas Collins, played by Johnny.
The 31-year-old revealed she can identify with strong characters.
"I enjoyed my meeting with Johnny Depp. We share a passion for metamorphosis and weird characters,” she explained. “It's inside me that everything happens. I am like a pressure-cooker which never explodes. When I get angry, it's more like Eva against Eva. Sometimes, I'd like to scream, but I can only manage to do it in movies. My mother tells me that I have multiples personalities -and it's true! I often have the sensation to be self-effacing, super shy and, suddenly, I am able to say outrageous remarks. It's pretty incomprehensible, even for me," she laughed.
Dark Shadows will be released from May next year.source
