Naomie Harris rumours more field work for Miss Moneypenny in Bond 24
During the promotion of her latest project, the biopic 'Mandela' which had its UK premiere the same day as the famous leader died, actress Naomie Harris was inevitably quizzed
about the next James Bond film - Bond 24.
For 'Skyfall', Harris went through nine months of fitness training and learned to stunt-drive and fire machine guns. But Skyfall ended with Eve Moneypenny becoming Bondâs secretary. Surely sheâs not going to just be doing the filing in Bond 24?
"Iâve heard rumours that Iâm going to be out in the field," she teases, "but I havenât seen a script. Knowing Barbara [Broccoli, the producer], sheâs all for womenâs lib, isnât she? Sheâs extraordinary; sheâs completely reinvented the brand, yet kept so true to the essence of what people love about Bond. So Iâm sure I wonât be just behind a desk. Or even if Iâm behind the desk, thereâll be some twist."
Harris also revealed that she landed the Bond role when director Sam Mendes saw her perform in the role of Elizabeth during a production of Danny Boyle's "Frankenstein" at the National Theatre.
