Heidi Klum talks about her role as Dr Katya Nadanova
in the latest James Bond game "Everything or Nothing"...
Heidi Klum Interview
26th March 2004
When EA were casting the new James Bond game "Everything or
Nothing", they needed a well known face for the role of Dr
Katya Nadanova, and who better than one of the world's most famous
supermodels? Now Heidi Klum talks about her role as the latest
How were you approached by Electronic Arts to provide
the voice for the character of Dr. Katya Nadanova in
James Bond 007: Everything or Nothing?
They just called me and asked me if I wanted to do this,
and that was it, really. I didn't have to audition; I didn't
really need to do anything.
They called me and asked me if
I wanted to do this and of course I said yes, straight
When and where did you record the voice over? How
was the recording process any different than your previous
We did it five or six months ago at a studio down
in Los Angeles. It was easier than I thought it was going
to be because people don't see your expressions.
It's not like
acting would be in a movie, so it was not as hard as
I had imagined. I had to do a bit more with my voice and
but since you don't see the body or don't see my face it was
definitely much easier.
"I had to be all huffy
puffy as if I was just running two miles"
We would build it up by starting slow with normal sentences,
then we got more and more to where I had to fight and I had to
be all "huffy puffy" as if I was just running two miles.
Then I have a fighting scene and screaming around and you're
in danger because you're about to get killed.
"Get out of the way [jerk]!"
It's a little scary and intimidating to do these things
when you don't have an actor with you, you do it by yourself.
You're in this sound proof box and someone tells you to
say these sentences like "you're being just chased
by someone with a gun to your head". You have to be
in a certain voice, so it feels a little awkward.
Is it easy to envision yourself in those kind of
situations or was it a challenge for you to imagine that?
No, it wasn't that hard. You just
don't know how loud you should go. Or
when you're screaming to be really mean,
you do it. But you don't know how that comes across, then
you listen to it a little bit or they basically say to you, "That
was not loud enough, go louder."
Then you're like "Get out of the way [jerk]!" Then
they're like "Louder!" So you do all these things
over and over again, and then they're like "Ok, let's
tone it down a bit." Like with all things you just
have to go for it and just experiment.
You play Dr. Katya Nadanova in the game, Everything or Nothing.
Can you tell us anything about this character? What did you
think of your role as her in the game?
I like it because she can do all these crazy things. She can
jump off buildings, she can shoot really well, she's flies the
helicopter, and gets to kiss Pierce Brosnan. All these cool things
that no one can really do. As one of those characters you can do
that stuff, so that's pretty cool.
What was the most memorable moment of the project?
I liked everything from sitting there and being cyber-scanned
because all the things we did that day I'd never done before.
To be cyber-scanned is pretty cool because you look into
the computer right after it's done and you see your head
in perfect measurements right there.
And to see the technology of how they drew that is pretty
wild. And for the voice overs, you're like a rock star
screaming around in this little studio with the microphone
right in front of you.
It's fun! It's things I don't get
to do on a day-to-day basis. So all of that was very interesting.
Thanks to EA
Games and Heidi Klum.
