Actress Helen McCrory still tight-lipped about 'Skyfall' involvement

26-Nov-2011 • Skyfall

Although the official twitter feed confirmed London-born McCrory's involvement in the forthcoming 007 adventure, "Skyfall", the actress is keeping mum when it comes to the part she will play.

In a recent interview with the Guardian, focusing mainly on the Scorsese-helmed "Hugo", McCrory revealed only that she was "not Bond".

"It's nice," she continued, "I'm not Bond in Bond and I'm not Hugo in Hugo. I've got a four- and five-year-old and I'm not away for months, making melodramatic decisions about whether to be a mother or an actress."

This is some indication that the role she will play in "Skyfall" will be a minor one. Aged 43, Helen is perhaps a better fit for the Moneypenny stereotype established during 007's 49 year legacy.
