My Weekend Crush

It’s in the eyes. Eva Green’s eyes are everything. They’re huge, but not in that doe-eyed way of ingénues. Instead they pierce through everything with their unblinking blue. They smolder, like Eva smolders, on screen – just daring you to look away. But, of course, you can’t. Eva has been fascinating us for years now. First as a “Dreamer” then as a Bond girl, as Miss G and a lady of “Camelot.” But now, as the mysterious Vanessa Ives, it is downright dangerous to ignore her. Eva is spectacular in “Penny Dreadful.” I’ve raved about the show already (gothic horror creeptasticness). But Eva deserves even more as Miss Ives. Enigmatic, haunted, powerful – everything she is flashes through her eyes. Combine that with the magnificent architecture of her face and, well, you have a woman to be reckoned with. Hell, she might even be “A Dame to Kill For.” Happy weekend, all.

Yeah well...

Take away all that dark make-up and her eyes don't say anything at all.

I'm not a fan of hers, her acting is mostly over the top and she's not that pleasant to look at IMO.

I think she is fantastic on this show (and I secretly 'ship her and Mina, in spite of the whole 'Mina is a vampire' thing). ;-)

She is the hub of the show. I really want her and cowboy man to get together.
