Bérénice Marlohe Omega Photos

30th November 2012

Bond girl Bérénice Marlohe, who plays Severine in the latest 007 adventure "Skyfall", has been named by Omega as their new brand ambassador for 2013. To mark the announcement, the French actress took part in a new photoshoot for a campaign titled 'One night in Shanghai' at the Swatch Art Peace Hotel in Shanghai. She was photographed by Bruno Dayan.

It sounds like you went above and beyond to become the latest Bond Girl.
As soon as I was given a fixed date for my audition, I studied for the role day and night. I watched every Bond film—although I had seen most of them growing up anyway. I paid attention to all the previous Bond Girls, trying to learn from them, but I made sure my character would have her own particular identity.

Did you have a particular strategy when you went in for your auditions?
I tried to hide my feminine side. I was inspired by Marlon Brando, who has always been my idol in terms of his acting style and presence. I wore a black dress—very simple—and I tried to be like Brando, with his sullen expressions and the feline way he carries himself. I knew the other actresses would focus more on their seductive sides, so I wanted to surprise the director by showing a more masculine side.
