Speaking to Movieline, Eva describes Angelique as: "An extreme character, completely obsessed with a man [laughs], and will do absolutely anything to get him, to own him. She looks like Barbie, but a bawdy Barbie. She’s a big character and lots of fun to play." She also praises director Tim Burton: "He wanted me to feel as comfortable as possible. It was a real collaboration, which is very rare, and he was very kind... very supportive."
In a chat with Elle Culture, she touches upon the special tone of the film: "It’s very cuckoo and electric and funny. It’s a different style... I’ve never had that kind of opportunity before – to play such an extreme character and to not be afraid of doing too much. It’s kind of close to... German experimental film, in the 1920s."
