When producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson decided to reboot the James Bond franchise back in the mid-2000s, a lot of the franchise’s mainstays were done away with. No more gadgets, no more Q, no more witty quips, and no more silliness. But one element that was always going to remain was Bond’s women. Good thing too. Ever since Daniel Craig took over the role, we’ve been treated to some lovely Bond girls in Eva Green, Caterina Murino, Olga Kurylenko and Gemma Arterton. Thank goodness for tradition.
In the 23rd Bond film “Skyfall” that tradition continues with Naomie Harris and Berenice Marlohe. Brit actress Harris has already quite a resume, having starred in “Pirates Of The Carribean: Dead Man’s Chest” and opposite former Bond Pierce Brosnan in “After The Sunset”. French model/actress Marlohe hasn’t got as extensive a career, but who cares. Just look at her, she’s absolutely stunning.
The official Bond website 007.com has just released two videos showcasing both ladies. Harris spoke about her weapons training in preparation for the role of a special operative named Eve, while Marlohe reminisced fondly about the thrill of being part of such a huge pop cultural institution. Check them out below…
“Skyfall” also stars Javier Bardem, Dame Judi Dench, Ralph Fiennes, Albert Finney, Ben Whishaw, Helen McCrory, Ola Rapace, and Tonia Sotiropoulou. It premieres 9th November.
