Becoming a Bond girl is considered by many as a sign of officially making it as a Hollywood actress and is a great way to announce your arrival at the top. There have been many Bond girls that have come and gone and there are bound to be many more to come over the years.
The latest actress to get the honour of playing a Bond girl is Berenice Marlohe, who is set to appear on the big screen later this month is Skyfall. With the premiere of the movie just around the corner, Berenice has been doing a lot of interviews and has revealed that her biggest inspiration is none other than Shirley Bassey.
Marlohe explained, “Shirley is the incarnation of a Bond girl. She gives me the sense of a sexy, powerful woman and so I took a lot of my inspiration from her. She is so great and her voice – my God.”
As well as Berenice Marlohe, Skyfall also stars Daniel Craig, who is returning for his third appearance as James Bond, as well as Ralph Fiennes, Judi Dench and Naomie Harris. Skyfall is set to be released in the UK on October 26 before then being released in the UK on November 9.
