English actress Joanne Froggatt latest rumour for Bond 24 role
34 year-old 'Downton Abbey' actress Joanne Froggatt is the latest name to be linked with a Bond Girl role in the upcoming 24th James Bond adventure, to be directed by Sam Mendes.
As MI6 previously reported
, the leading female role in the film is understood to be a British character (whereas the smaller Bond Girl role will be Scandinavian).
A 'source' told the Daily Star Sunday newspaper: ''The days are now counting down to the casting of the Bond girls. Everyone in the UK has been asked to keep quiet about their audition. Joanne is seen as a huge talent, whose acting makes her a real stand-out candidate. Her role in 'Downton' will be a world away from Bond and that is what makes it so appealing for casting agents. 'Joanne is attractive but this time producers want a gritty woman who will be a match for 007.''
