UKranian Actress Lands Bond Girl Role
Ukranian actress OLGA KURYLENKO is to become a BOND girl alongside British star GEMMA ARTERTON. The 28-year-old former model will reportedly take on the coveted part of Daniel Craig's sidekick for the currently untitled movie which is due to hit cinemas in November (08). Kurylenko - who recently starred alongside Timothy Olyphant in 2007 film Hitman - is the latest in a long line of beauties to appear in the superspy franchise, including Halle Berry, Kim Basinger and, most recently, Eva Green in last year's (07) Casino Royale. Twenty-one year-old St Trinian's star Arterton was also rumoured to have landed a role in the 22nd installment of the Bond series and has been sworn to secrecy until the final cast list is announced later this month (Jan08).
