Earlier in the week, MI6 leaked
news that British singer songwriter Natasha Bedingfield
would be making a cameo in the forthcoming James Bond
videogame "From Russia With Love", and hinted
that she would play the daughter of the British Prime Minister,
who is rescued by 007 in the opening mission at the Houses
of Parliament. EA today officially confirmed the news.
Electronic Arts has signed the UK pop sensation Natasha
Bedingfield to make a cameo appearance in the highly anticipated
"From Russia With Love", due for worldwide release
in Autumn 2005. This is EA's newest addition to the widely
successful James Bond video game franchise.
Bedingfield will lend her voice and likeness to the character
Elizabeth Stark, daughter of England's Prime Minister.
In the game Miss Stark is kidnapped and must be rescued
by James Bond. Bedingfield will appear alongside Sir Sean
Connery, who is reprising his role as the dapper secret
agent 007 in the game.
"The game is set in the original 60's Bond era featuring
movie based missions as well as original action-intensive
sequences, a broad and deep variety of gameplay and fully
integrated vehicles," said Jon Rissik, Senior Marketing
Director EA Europe. "Natasha Bedingfield is an exceptional
British talent and was a natural choice for this part."
"I am thrilled to be featured
alongside Sean Connery in the game version of one of my
favorite Bond films. It's not every day you get to become
a Bond Girl so this is a great honour." -
