Naomie Harris - Naomie Harris' James Bond Stunt Double Was A Man

Actress Naomie Harris' main stunt double on the set of James Bond movie Skyfall was a man.

The Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest star plays secret agent Eve in the 007 blockbuster, but she shied away from many of the high-action scenes.

Instead, stunt doubles were called in - and Harris confessed during an appearance on Britain's The One Show on Friday (15Feb13) that they were mainly men in women's clothes and make-up.

When asked by Tv presenter Chris Evans, "Did you do your own stunts?", she replied, "I would like to say yes, but... no, I didn't, unfortunately.

"(They were) mainly stuntmen... The guy who played me in the car was a guy with a wig on who was 'blacked up' to look like me."
