Greek actress Tonia Sotiropoulou, who plays
but glamorous part at the beginning of the new James Bond
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
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."
