Bond Girl rumour #3 (closed): Jasmine Lennard out of contention for speaking to press
Casino Royale - 14-11-05

Despite a vigorous campaign, the outspoken model Jasmine Lennard has failed to become the next Bond girl - reports The Independent.

According to the paper, "in a break from tradition, the producers of Casino Royale, who last month cast Daniel Craig in the title role, have ditched her in favour of somebody with a proven acting pedigree."

Lennard is still being considered for a couple of minor walk-on parts, but I understand that the casting agents are upset that details of her potential involvement were leaked to the press last month.

MI6 Note: Not so much "leaked", as Lennard spilled the beans to rival paper The Daily Mail last month - click here for the quotes.

She further burned bridges at the launch of the TV show Football Italia on Wednesday, when asked for her views on the appointment of Craig.



"I like Daniel Craig's ruggedness, but I don't think he'll be a decent James Bond," she said. "He's not clean-cut enough and, please, James Bond as a blond? I'm afraid it just won't work."

Regardless of the setback, Lennard retains an impressive pedigree. Her mother, Marilyn Galsworthy, seduced Roger Moore in The Spy Who Loved Me.

Thanks to `JP` for the alert.
