Actress Eva Green has come a long way since making her film debut in Bernardo Bertolucci's risque The Dreamers four years ago.
In the last 12 months, the French star has really made her mark in the film industry, after a career-defining role in Bond film Casino Royale.
Green received her rising star Bafta from 2006 winner James McAvoy
In February, members of the public voted for her to win the rising star award at the Baftas.
A month later, she was named best female newcomer at the Empire Awards for her portrayal of treasury agent, and James Bond's first love, Vesper Lynd.
"It's nice to be recognised in England as an actress," says the 27-year-old.
"It's quite flattering because you're recognised a bit more, but it hasn't changed my career.
"I don't know - maybe in three years. We'll see."
Green has recently teamed up again with Bond co-star Daniel Craig for fantasy blockbuster The Golden Compass, in which she plays witch queen Serafina Pekkala.
The actress has also just finished shooting Franklyn, a London-set drama in which she plays two characters - one of whom is an experimental video artist.
She says the films are "very different" and "very independent" of one another - although she insists they are both "quite well made".
Daughter of French actress Marlene Jobert, Green started off in theatre after going to drama school in both France and London.
It was Green's performance in The Dreamers that convinced director Ridley Scott to cast her in his 2005 epic Kingdom of Heaven, a film about the Crusades.
She was only hired a week before filming began, which Green said she found both "stressful" and "exciting".
Despite poor reviews, the film made more than $200m (£98m) worldwide, and thrust Green firmly into the Hollywood spotlight.
But the actress turned down the next role she was offered - in Brian De Palma's noir thriller The Black Dahlia - fearing she would be typecast as a femme fatale after playing a similar role in The Dreamers.
As Green's career continues to reach new levels of stardom, passing on major roles could become something she does more often.
