Naomie Harris Changing Voice For Skyfall
The actress is to take on the role of Miss Moneypenny in the latest 007 film, 'Skyfall', but producers feel her vocal range is too high-pitched and want her voice to be a bit more husky.
A source told the Daily Star: "She has to lower her voice on camera because she has a very high-pitched girly tone. Naomie needs to sound husky, sexy and more womanly."
She said: "It would be great to be part of Bond but nothing is confirmed yet. Sam Mendes is an amazing director and a really, really lovely man as well.
"He's got brilliant ideas. From meeting them, I think it's going to be a very special Bond."
The 35-year-old star has watched the spy movies, but does not have a favourite film, instead preferring the acting talents of eccentric singer Grace Jones, who previously appeared as May Day in 'A View to a Kill'.
She said: "Grace Jones did a Bond that I thought was really cool. She wasn't a Bond girl, though. She was more of a villain!"
