After all this talk about a black Bond, maybe they want to please the public by giving them at least a black villain? :) Although he would be the 5th one, I think, so nothing really revolutionary ;)
I think it's a very interesting choice, he is a very good actor and has potential to be a great villain, probably not as OTT as Javier, which would be good.

And I hope for a Bond gir with a bit more screen time than Severine :)

Did it say a British girl and a Scandinavian one?
That puts paid to the Penelope Cruz rumours. It will be interesting to see what turns out to be true in the end.

I did not see British but maybe I just overlooked; however the British thing reminds me of other rumours: http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/2013/10 ... 68941.html

How is she? Is she a good actress?

She's f***ing awful! :lol:

No way in a million years would she ever stand a chance.

Lol Helen Flanagan :lol: basically just some 'lad mad' pinup, she was awful in Corrie and has never been cast in anything else since she left beside celeb shoes.

I see. I didn't know her but in those pictures she seemed a bit cheap :oops: That's why I asked, pictures don't always give a good idea about somebody. That article also mentions Kate Upton. I googled her - she looks very pretty but I know nothing about her acting skills. She seems to be a model.

I would like them to choose Katie McGrath. She played Morgana in the BBC Merlin series. She's an Irish woman, absolutely beautiful in my view (although my husband disagrees - we've already discussed his weird taste in women - he preferred her ally Morgause, played by Emilia Fox, who was of course DC's drug dealer in FOAF).

Wow Katie McGrath IS very beautiful! I don't think I know her as an actress so I do not have an opinion...

There is a Rachel-ish touch in that Katie. She sure is pretty in an interesting way. I suppose they shy away from giving him a blonde Bond girl, being blond himself. A wild redheard would be great, if you ask me.
The top notch acting in the Weisz/Craig/Spall 'Betrayal' is emotionally true, often v funny and its beautifully staged with filmic qualities..

Since we are in speculation land these days:

http://www.entertainmentwise.com/news/1 ... -Girl-Role

http://www.aceshowbiz.com/news/view/00069835.html (Casting for two key female roles is also underway. They are for a new Bond girl and "a Scandinavian with a troubled past who will serve as a brief love interest for Bond." No word on who the candidates might be, but there's rumor that Swedish actresses Ida Engvoll and Disa Ostrand have tested for the movie.)

I was not a James Bond fan until Daniel was cast. I love the way they portray him now. I can't wait to see what they do with the next one.

I hope the new Bond girl isn't too BRIEF as a love interest. I don't need another Fields or the woefully under-used Severine. I want a story to get my teeth into, and a bit of romance we can believe in.

I think it makes sense for Daniel's James Bpnd to have a blonde thrown into the mix. He may have a preference for brunettes, but it's gotten predicable. I could definitely see the producers vying for Kate Upton, but there is no shortage of gorgeous Scandanavian women, that's for sure. They just need to find one who's not too tall :wink: .
