Daniel Craig - 'Skyfall' Bond Girls Are Exceptional Claims Daniel Craig

As anticipation builds for release of the new James Bond film Skyfall, Daniel Craig has been telling anyone who'll listen that the latest Bond girls are as good as any to feature in the famous movie series. Naomie Harris and Berenice Marlohe are the actresses playing leading roles in the forthcoming film, and Craig told The Metro "The casting of the Bond girls with Naomie and Bérénice... Finding two exceptionally beautiful girls who are very serious actresses. Both of them wanted to be in a Bond movie."

Craig, who will be playing Bond for the third time in Skyfall, added: "Both of them have bought totally individual characters to their parts and for me on the set it's just been a joy to play with these people." Harris meanwhile said that the role of the Bond girl had changed, something welcome and important in keeping up to date with 21st century attitudes surrounding women. "I don't think it's enough to look pretty anymore. It may well have been true in the past but not anymore" Harris commented. Of her character in the film she said "She kind of sees her self as Bond's equal."

She admitted that she was delighted to be involved in the franchise, saying: "I loved the Bond movies for so many years and there are so many amazing, hugely talented women who have been Bond girls so it's a huge honour to be part of that legacy so I feel incredibly proud. I still can't believe it. I have to pinch myself every day pretty much."
