Naomie Harris is set to appear on the big screen in the James Bond movie Skyfall and has been talking about what fans can expect from the movie. There is a scene in Skyfall where Naomie has to shave James Bond actor Daniel Craig but she admits that she was fully prepared for it.
Harris told DenOfGeek, “I was a bit nervous. But the producers made sure I had three weeks of going to barbershop school, so I practised on some balloons with shaving foam. I was very well prepared. It was also a fake blade as well, obviously.”
She added, “So it was really great to do that scene, because I’d been doing so much action work up to that point, and it was so intimate and without massive trains and sets falling down and that sort of thing.”
Naomie also spoke about how much she enjoyed working with James Bond star Daniel Craig, noting that he is a great guy. She also stated that Daniel is the ideal actor to work with because it encourages you to better yourself.
She continued, “It was great working with him, because he’s really down to earth, and a lovely guy. And a brilliant actor, he’s at the top of his game. That’s what you want as a performer – to work with people who were brilliant, so then you raise your game.”
Skyfall is set to be released in the UK on October 26 and in the US on November 9.
