She had originally auditioned for the part of Severine in the new movie but this was given to French actress Berenice Marlohe. However the Bond producers had their heads turned by Tonia’s looks and seem to have made up a new part just for her. They contacted her agent and asked her to resubmit for a part in the film although it is not believed that at that stage they even had a name for the new character.
Even now we have not been given a name for Tonia’s character although we do know that her scenes are to be filmed in Turkey. Filming for her part is due to start in Istanbul on 22 April.
Little is known about the Greek beauty, who now lives in London. She has mostly appeared in Greek tv series such as Lola and Alithinoi Erotes although she has just finished filming an Italian horror movie called Berberian Sound Studio, directed and written by Peter Strickland, where she plays the part of Elena.
Tonia is obviously delighted about landing a part in such a high-profile film as Skyfall and said via Twitter: “Dear friends I officially announce I got a part in J. Bond new film!!! Turkey here I come! Thank u all for you love and support! This is officially the happiest day of my life bitches!!!!”
It is the 2nd time that the 28-year old has won the award from the mag. She is best known for her work modelling the Victoria’s Secret range of lingerie. She first became famous on 2007 when she was made one of the “Victoria’s Secret Angels.”
She has been married to Lord of the Rings and Pirates of the Caribbean actor Orlando Bloom since 2010. The couple have a young baby son called Flynn and the family spend much of their time in LA.
Although she still has a strict eating regime and keeps fit with yoga these days Miranda is more keen to spend time with her son Flynn than on the catwalk. She says that she has slowed down her working so that she can spend more time with her son. Miranda said: “I’m first a wife and a mother, and then comes work.”
Miranda said of the couple’s 15-month old son that he is: ““like a little ball of sunshine. He’s a really charming, lovely boy. He has that look in his eye like, ‘What trouble am I going to get into next?’ But I like that, it’s like me.”
Apart from Miranda the only names on the Who magazine Most Beautiful Person list that people in the UK are likely to know are singer Delta Goodrem, Ryan Gosling and our very own latest boy band One Direction.
