Eva Gaëlle Green [e-VA GREN] (born July 5, 1980) is a BAFTA award-winning French actress
Eva Green was born in Paris, France to a French mother and a Swedish father, and was raised in the 17th arrondissement of Paris. She attended the American School of Paris for her formal years. Her mother is actress Marlène Jobert; her father, Walter Green, is a Swedish dentist, who appeared in the 1966 film Au hasard Balthazar – this was his first and only on-screen appearance. She has one sibling, a fraternal twin sister, Joy, from whom she is reportedly estranged. Green's name is pronounced /gre:n/, approximately rhyming with "wren" in Swedish; it comes from the Swedish word gren, which means (tree) branch. She studied acting in Paris for three years, followed by a ten-week polishing course at the Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art in London, England.
