Tonia Sotiropoulou Photoshoot

30th August 2012

Greek actress Tonia Sotiropoulou, who plays a small but glamorous part at the beginning of the new James Bond film "Skyfall", has given her first print interview and photoshoot to Status magazine in her native country. MI6 first revealed the role back in April.

The introduction to the article reads: "SEDUCING 007. A few months before the premiere of SKYFALL, where she's appearing as a Bond Girl next to Daniel Craig, Tonia Sotiropoulou knows that now, more than ever, she has to chase her dream. The one that led her away from Greece four years ago."

Talking about her work on the film, she said: "The first audition, I remember, was on a Friday. On Monday they called me and said I had an appointment with Sam Mendes. They didn't tell me I got the role, but I was sure. So I went and met him. He was very sweet and kind and at the end of our discussion he said "alright, see you in Turkey".

"I tried to look calm because there were a lot of production people there. I was suffering! When I finally came back home, I fell on my knees and started crying. But that's what I do with every role I take. It's a huge satisfaction seeing that a director wants to implement his vision through you."
