Meet the lucky starlets who will be playing Bond girls in the 23rd British spy film, Skyfall
Daniel Craig has officially revealed who will be playing his Bond girls in the 23rd spy film Skyfall – lucky french actress Bérénice Marlohe and British beauty Naomi Harris.
At a James Bond press conference in London last night, the actor announced that French actress Bérénice Marlohe would be Bond’s beauty.
Dressed for the part in a sizzling red Antonio Berardi dress, Bérénice said she would be playing ‘a glamorous, enigmatic character called Severin’.
But director Sam Mendes made a point to introduce the actress as a ‘Bond lady’ rather than a ‘Bond girl’,
Originally thought to have been cast as the new Miss Moneypenny, Harris told excited press that she would, in fact, be playing a field agent named Eve, revealing she had been training for two months to get ready for the part.
Not forgetting the other woman in James Bond, life, it was also confirmed Dame Judi Dench will be back to play to play M for a seventh time.
Other key cast members include Ralph Fiennes, Albert Finney and Ben Whishaw, although Mendes refused to reveal any details about their roles.
And for some man candy, not only do us ladies have Daniel Craig to ogle at, but, Javier Bardem has also been cast to play Bond’s nemesis.
When asked if both of them would be taking their shirts off in scenes, Craig said, ‘That’s the gig’, and then joked that ‘Javier will be stripped naked’. Gosh…
Filming for the 23rd Bond movie starts today in London’s Whitehall and will also shoot in China, Turkey and Scotland.
Skyfall, which will follow on from the plot of the last three films, will be released at the end of next year.
