Mya Harrison talks more about her involvement in `Everything or Nothing`

30-Dec-2003 • Gaming

Mya Harrison, who plays Agent Mya Starling in the forthcoming Bond game "Everything or Nothing" has talked about her involvement with the production to GamePro.

How’s life as a Bond Girl?
Mya: I’m not complaining. It’s pretty good. I’m getting lots of nice games and getting to play the video game before it hits stores so I’m having a good time right now.

Now you’ve been in films such as Moulin Rouge and Chicago. How does acting in a film compare to acting in a video game?
Mya: Well, I don’t really have to do anything other than voiceovers as far as acting in a video game is concerned. I’m not there on set emulating body movement, nothing like that. It’s all left up to the animators. I basically hit the studio, do my voiceovers -- maybe record each line 50 times for different inflections, but that’s about it. They basically take a cyberscan of you, from your chest to your face, and they leave the body parts up to the animators. You are required to give a little bit of facial expression -- showing anger, showing desperation, showing different kinds of moods. That’s it.

As someone who is a gamer as well as a singer and actor, what was the best part of the whole experience?
Mya: Can I be honest?
Yeah, what was the most fun?
Mya: I liked the voiceovers. I laughed a lot in that session, even though I had to get violent and evil. I got to scream from the bottom of my lungs over and over again. I thought that was really stress relieving. When I walked into that session I had no clue what I would be doing, but when I came out I just felt a release of something. That was the hottest part.

There was a coincidence that happened -- Shannon Elizabeth, she’s also a Bond girl -- we`re doing a movie together now. That sort of just happened out of the blue. I don’t know if they knew about it, but we’re in the Bond game and a movie called Curse together.

"Everything or Nothing" is released in North America on February 10th 2004, and in Europe on Feburary 20th 2004.
