Naomie Harris talks Skyfall

Exclusive: “I don’t think anyone’s really a match for Bond”

Total Film recently spoke with new Bond recruit Naomie Harris about her role in the 23rd film in the superspy series, Skyfall.

She’ll play Eve in the new movie, which arrives 50 years after 007’s first screen outing in Dr No.

While details on Skyfall are being guarded more closely than MI6 secrets, Harris did divulge some information.

On the training she’s been doing in preparation, she told us, “I started off with yoga and running, and I’ve been doing stunt training and gyrotonics three times a week.”

When we asked if Eve was an ally or a baddie, she responded, “My character would like to see herself as a female Bond but I don’t think anyone’s really a match for Bond.”

And has she done many stunts? “I kickbox and do a lot with guns. I started off terrified by the sound of a gun, let alone having any idea of how to hold one but now I really enjoy it.”

For more from Naomie Harris, and her Skyfall co-star Bérénice Marlohe, get the new issue of Total Film magazine, which is out now!

      Soooo, not playing Moneypenny then? Unless her first name is Eve? Do any die-hard Bond-fans know if that's the case?

      In the "The Moneypenny Diaries" she is called Jane however I cant see why that would stop them changing her name for Skyfall?

      Perhaps 'Moneypenny' is like 'Bond' and 'M' in that her real name is classified and 'Moneypenny' is an adpoted moniker...? Thinking about it, I'd love to see a Bond spin-off simply entitled Moneypenny... It could be about the dangerous and high rish role of a Secret Service PA...

      I don't like the idea of Monneypenny going out into the field.
