Naomie Harris - Naomie Harris: too old for Bond girl?

Naomie Harris thought she was too old to be a Bond girl.

The actress - who stars alongside Daniel Craig in new 007 movie 'Skyfall' - admits she was shocked when her agent asked her to audition for the role as she assumed at 35, she was past it.

She said: ''When my agent first said I was auditioning as a Bond girl, I said, 'I'm 35, I don't think that is very likely.' ''

By signing up to the series, Naomie joins the likes of Teri Hatcher, Vamke Jenssen and Halle Berry in taking on a female lead in the movies, but does not think the phrase 'Bond girl' has negative connotations any more.

She said: ''I don't mind it at all. I know some people think being called a 'Bond girl' is an insult but I'm hugely honoured and flattered; so many amazing women have been Bond girls before, and now I'm considered one of them? I don't see it as anything derogatory at all.

''Anyway, I don't think it's a term that holds water now, to be honest, because all the women in the movies have evolved so much. They're multi-faceted, multi-dimensional, intelligent and equal to Bond.''
