The official James Bond 007 website and MSN UK (by way of Coming Soon) have posted video blogs featuring Skyfall's newest Bond girls — Berenice Marlohe (Severine) and Naomie Harris (Eve). We haven't seen the famed Secret Service agent in action since Daniel Craig's appearance in 2008's Quantum of Solace. And as most fans of the action franchise know, a new movie almost didn't happen due to MGM's financial woes. Sam Mendes is directing the twenty-third Bond film, starring Craig once more as the charismatic British spy — alongside a villainous Javier Bardem, Dame Judi Dench, Ralph Fiennes, Albert Finney, Ben Whishaw, Helen McCrory and Ola Rapace.
French actress Marlohe — who has mainly appeared in television and commercial work — will be starring as a "glamorous and enigmatic" Bond girl. She certainly has the physical traits 007 adores, and the actress reveals that her character has a dark side we become privy to the first time we meet her in the film. "I think there is a big range of colors when playing a Bond girl, whether they are very nice or good characters or villainous or psychopaths," Marlohe tells us.
While Marlohe plays up the mysterious Euro-seductress, Harris' Eve fits Bond's requirements for a tough, sexy Bond girl. Harris shares that her character thinks she's Bond's equal — and although she's far from it, according to the star, she certainly knows how to handle a gun. We get to watch Harris during shooting practice in her video blog, preparing for her role as a "field agent."
In Skyfall, "Bond's loyalty to M is tested as her past comes back to haunt her. As MI6 comes under attack, 007 must track down and destroy the threat, no matter how personal the cost." Check out the clips below, and let us know if Harris and Marlohe make the best Bond girls for our Secret Agent man.
