Talking to Metro, Daniel Craig said: “The casting of the Bond girls with Naomie and Bérénice… Finding two exceptionally beautiful girls who are very serious actresses. Both of them wanted to be in a Bond movie.”
“Both of them have bought totally individual characters to their parts and for me on the set it’s just been a joy to play with these people.”
The two new Bond girls he is talking about are Naomie Harris and Berenice Marlohe but we must remember that the new film also stars the stunning looking Greek actress Tonia Sotiropoulou.
The main Bond girl in Skyfall is Severine played by French beauty Berenice Marlohe, who says: “Bond girls don’t look like models. They have a specific look, a look that fits to the movie.”
Naomie Harris plays the part of Eve, a field agent, who Harris says sees herself more as an equal of James Bond than in the traditional Bond girl role. Nonetheless Harris is thrilled with landing the part of a Bond girl and said that she was honoured to be following in the footsteps of such great actresses as Honor Blackman and Halle Berry.
Harris said: “I loved the Bond movies for so many years and there are so many amazing, hugely talented women who have been Bond girls so it’s a huge honour to be part of that legacy so I feel incredibly proud. I still can’t believe it. I have to pinch myself every day pretty much.”
