Sherlock Star Lara Pulver To Be New Bond Girl, But Not THAT Kind Of Bond Girl

Lara Pulver, best known for her role in the Sherlock episode 'A Scandal in Belgravia' and as Claudine Crane in True Blood, has been cast as the next Bond girl, but wont be staring alongside Daniel Craig and co. in the follow-up to Skyfall.

Pulver will instead be staring alongside Dominic Cooper in the upcoming biopic about Bond creator Ian Fleming, taking on the role of the famed author's wife Ann, with whom Fleming (played by Cooper) was married to for 12 years until his death in 1964.

In an official statement to press, Pulver recognised her role as being one of the most famous Bond girls of all and seemed overwhelmed with her appointment in the role. She said, “I am thrilled to be playing Ann, a real-life high society siren worthy of Fleming’s finest fictional femme fatales." She added, “In extraordinary times Ann had the ear of politicians as powerful as Churchill and counted artists like Lucian Freud among her friends, yet was consumed by a torrid romance with the great Ian Fleming."

The upcoming biopic, currently in pre-production stages with the working title Fleming, will be shot on location in the United Kingdom and Budapest, Hungary, and will be shown on Sky Atlantic later this year.
