Bond girls. James Bond girls. Thanks to the newest videoblogs posted on 007.com and MSN UK, we now have an official first look at Bond’s latest femme fatales. Bérénice Marlohe, who plays Severine, and Naomie Harris, who plays Eve, will both be playing deadly women with looks that kill, following the tradition of Bond girls from movies past.
“Skyfall” shows Bond’s faith in M being tested as her mysterious past comes back to haunt her. With MI6 under attack, it’s up to Bond to once again seek out the threat and destroy it no matter how personally invested he is in the matter. Marlohe and Harris will be joining the already star-studded cast of “Skyfall,” acting alongside heavy hitters such as Daniel Craig, Javier Bardem, Dame Judi Dench, and Ralph Fiennes.

“Eve is a field agent. She’s very capable,” states Harris. “She kind of sees herself as Bond’s equal. She’s not, but that’s how she sees herself.” Harris’ take on Eve appears to be tough in a way that transcends gender.
Displaying her firearm capabilities, Harris looks like she can definitely take care of herself. “I’ve been training for like two months now. I’ve mainly been doing guns; machine guns and hand guns in particular.”
Marlohe’s Severine also appears to be very capable of defending herself. “The first time you see her, she has a dark side,” says the actress on her character. If that is the case, perhaps Severine will have something to do with the attack on MI6.
As is the norm for the series, it definitely looks like Bond will have his hands full again with this new set of Bond girls.
