Bond girl Rosamund Pike enjoys being a Johnny English girl too

25-Sep-2010 • Actor News

Rosamund Pike has revealed she is no Bond girl in the new Johnny English film, reports the UK Press Association.

The English rose - who starred as villain Miranda Frost opposite Pierce Brosnan in James Bond film Die Another Day - has signed up to star alongside Rowan Atkinson and Dominic West in spoof spy movie Johnny English Reborn, and is really enjoying it despite not being given any weapons to fire.

Rosamund revealed: "Although it's Bond spoof, it's nothing like being a Bond girl, because I've got a very interesting role to play actually. Not that the character in the Bond film wasn't interesting but, I don't get to play with guns or fight. There is a scene in a car, so there is an element of Bond about it. But she's quite a funny character."

The Made In Dagenham star revealed Rowan personally requested her to star in the sequel to his James Bond spoof.

She said: "Rowan Atkinson came after he saw An Education and wanted me to do this part in the Johnny English film for him. It's a very, very funny script."
