Naomie Harris reveals excitement over being cast as Bond girl in Skyfall


By Hindustan Times

New Bond girl Naomie Harris has revealed that when she got a call from her agent to inform her that she’ll be cast as Moneypenny in the new 007 flick Skyfall, she couldn’t control herself from screaming in excitement.

Harris has been caught up in the glamorous whirlwind that comes with being a Bond girl.

“I never ever thought I would be a Bond girl. I certainly didn’t think I would be playing one aged 35. I didn’t think I would ever get that call but I am loving it,” the Sun quoted her as saying.

“I remember the day I found out I’d got the part very clearly. I was in Washington at the Kenyan embassy promoting another film I had done.

“I got the call from my agent and I remember being so excited and screaming, ‘You’re kidding me, you’re kidding me’ about 15million times down the phone,” she said.

In Skyfall, the 23rd Bond film, Harris plays a field agent operating under the name Eve, who later turns out to be Moneypenny.

She teams up with Daniel Craig’s 007, which allows Harris to show off her action skills, as well as her sultry side.
