Bombshell Eva Green went platinum blonde for her role in Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows — but admits the idea took a bit of convincing.
“The blonde hair was kind of a big thing for me because in the beginning I was like, ‘Oh my God,’” Green told PEOPLE at the film’s Hollywood premiere on Monday. “I didn’t want it to look like a silly blonde.”
However, Green ultimately decided blonde hair was crucial to her character, since part of the film is set in the ’70s. “It was a great choice from [director Tim Burton] because it represents American, sunshine, health,” she explained.
