Miss Moneypenny Stays Loyal To Brosnan

JAMES BOND actress SAMANTHA BOND has refused to reprise her role as MISS MONEYPENNY in forthcoming 007 movies, because she wants to remain loyal to ousted Bond PIERCE BROSNAN.

The English actress played the sexy MI6 employee alongside Brosnan's slick superspy in GOLDENEYE, TOMORROW NEVER DIES, THE WORLD IS NOT ENOUGH and DIE ANOTHER DAY.

However, now blonde actor DANIEL CRAIG has taken over Brosnan's role for CASINO ROYALE, Bond insists she has retired from the Moneypenny role.

She says, "I've always been Pierce Brosnan's girl, and said that as long as he was going to play Bond, then so would I. But no longer.

"I've been the only modern Moneypenny to snog (kiss) Bond, so to do it with another leading man would be like being unfaithful."

What a bunch of yellow journalist turds you are. Here's the article you stole this story from, and it's completely different:http://news.independent.co.uk/people/pandora/article343906.ece* Samantha Bond is stoical about the decision to axe her alter ego, Miss Moneypenny, from the forthcoming James Bond film.Unlike her famous predecessor Lois Maxwell - who reckons the whole thing is "a travesty" - the comely actress says die-hard Bond, fans ought to be delighted."If you read the original Casino Royale, you'll see that Moneypenny didn't feature in the book, so it's natural that she's not in the film either," I'm told.As to rumours that she may return in future episodes, Ms Bond - who was speaking at the launch of the BsquareB summer ball - is unequivocal."No. I've always been Pierce Brosnan's girl, and said that as long as he was going to play Bond then so would I [play Moneypenny]. But no longer."I've been the only modern Moneypenny to snog Bond, so to do it with another leading man would be like being unfaithful."
