“When it comes to theatre, an actor always has a chance to play a classic role. In film, once a movie has been made, it’s made,” says Williams.
Bérénice Marlohe on Her ‘Skyfall’ Role: “It was very important to get rid of this ‘Bond girl’ title”
Bérénice Marlohe is the latest in a long line of incredibly sexy women who most men can only dream about, yet James Bond beds on a regular basis. She appears in the latest 007 film, Skyfall, as the “Bond girl” who gets her claws in Daniel Craig’s James Bond
Skyfall – the best Bond film in years.
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.
It’s true Javier Bardem makes a killer villain, pun intended. Just check out his past Oscar-winning role in No Country for Old Men. In the new James Bond film, Skyfall, Bardem brings his acting chops to a role that has some surprisingly funny moments.
Javier Bardem on Playing a 007 Villain: “It was a great gift of finding myself in a very, very creative process”
It’s not often that such an acclaimed actor as Javier Bardem stars as the villain in a James Bond movie, which is perhaps one of the reasons why Skyfall is the most critically praised 007 films in the series’ fifty-year history.
Not many actors have to step into a role that was at one time played by an actor in seventeen films previously, so perhaps it’s fair to say that Ben Whishaw has it more difficult than most young actors by appearing as James Bond’s personal armorer Q in Skyfall.
Anderson Cooper Travels to London to Talk ‘Skyfall’ in this ’60 Minutes’ Interview Featuring Daniel Craig (video)
If you’re as excited about the upcoming Bond film, Skyfall, as I am, then this 60 Minutes segment from Sunday will only add fuel to the fire.
Here’s the first clip from Skyfall. There’s not much going on here except Daniel Craig looking a million times more poised than any of us would be after walking along a crane and jumping into a moving train. I’m really looking forward to this.
Daniel Craig may only be part of Her Majesty’s Secret Service when he appears in James Bond films, but in an interview with Vanity Fair he has some good advice about fame that Prince Harry and his sister-in-law Princess Kate should think about adhering to.
It’s been four years since 007 was on screen — one of the longest gaps between sequels in the James Bond franchise — so when Daniel Craig returns as the British secret agent in November’s Skyfall it will be a very welcome return.
