"Filming's] only just started. We're gently getting into it and... the '70s [time period]. I just suddenly thought I know this period and funnily enough, the woman who made all the food for Toast... is doing all the food on Dark Shadows... She was cooking the breakfast because we have a few dinner scenes in this."
Asked about her psychotherapist mother, who often studies scripts for her, Carter suggests: "I'm definitely borrowing from her... being a psychotherapist, I've been brought up with that whole psychoanalytical terrain. But I'm not sure my mom will feel flattered to know that I'm basing the alcoholic psychiatrist on her... We'll see with Dr. Hoffman, but it's fun being a doctor. I get to hypnotize Johnny [Depp] and do all sorts of things to him." To read the full interview, click here.

UK newspaper The Guardian has interviewed actress Eva Green to promote the UK launch of Camelot, with the conversation broadening to include her role as Angelique in the new Dark Shadows feature film.
Eva reveals that her costume for the character includes a "bone-crushing corset", adding "I'm like 'Oh my God, I have to lose weight!' Tonight, I'll eat salad, no wine, that's it," she sighs. And, perhaps channeling a little of Angelique already, she adds: "I feel like I'm 1,000. I don't feel I'm young enough a lot of the time." To read the full article, click here.
