Before French-born actress Eva Green took on the role of Vesper Lynd opposite Daniel Craig in 2006's "Casino Royale," she was known mainly only to theater junkies and those who saw a whole lot her in her first feature film, Bernardo Bertolucci's "The Dreamers." Green was not a mainstream starlet by any means when she played Lynd, Bond's first romantic interest. "They asked me to come and audition a year and a half ago in London and I didn't want to go, because the Bond Girl role is a bit dangerous for an actress, I'd say," Green admitted. But taking that risk not only won Green a BAFTA and Entertainment Weekly's honor as the fourth best Bond girl in the franchise's history, but it also led to more roles. She's since gone on to star in more films in the past three years than in her 26 years before "Casino Royale," such as "The Golden Compass" and "The Last Word." (Photo: Sony Pictures)
