Naomie Harris on Becoming a ‘Modern’ Bond Girl: “It’s the most freedom I ever felt. That’s one of the reasons the franchise survives so well. It’s what they enable you to do”
The James Bond movies are known for various trademarks, but perhaps none are so appealing as the Bond girls — the beautiful women who co-star alongside 007 himself, and usually end up in his bedroom. But while actress Naomie Harris is no stranger to franchises — she appeared in two of the four Pirates of the Caribbean movies — she is adamant that her character in Skyfall, the latest Bond film, is no stereotypical “Bond girl.” In an interview with USA Today, Harris talks about her action-oriented role and what sets her apart from other women in the long-running series.
