Bond Girl Vesper Lynd. Eva Green was born in Paris, France, where she studied at the St. Paul School of Drama. Her early work was in theatre, before she landed a substantial role in Bernardo Bertolucci's film The Dreamers. This caught the attention of director Ridley Scott, leading to a costarring role in Kingdom of Heaven. Her appearance as Vesper Lynd in Casino Royale was only her fourth appearance in cinema, and was met with wide critical success.
