Harris Talks Her “Bond 23” Audition

Actress Naomie Harris (“Pirates of the Caribbean,” “Miami Vice”) has confirmed she has tried out for the role of a possible Bond girl in the 23rd James Bond installment reports Shadow and Act.

When asked about the rumor, Harris said “All I can say is I’ve met the ‘Bond’ team, I’ve met Sam Mendes, they’re all wonderful. I’ve auditioned for ‘Bond.’ My audition was really great actually because it’s so top secret, the whole Bond thing. I hadn’t realized how top secret it was. I’ve auditioned for a lot of things before but never for something where you can’t see the script, it’s that secret.”

She added “I auditioned with a scene from ‘Quantum of Solace.’ You don’t know what role you’re going up for either, so everybody gets given a scene from a previous ‘Bond’ movie. I don’t know whether it’s true or not that I’m going to be an intelligent Bond girl. I don’t know at all but I’d like it.”

Shooting on the next Bond film is slated to kick off towards the end of the year.
