Freida Pinto joins a long line of kick-ass Bond girls. What do you think of the choice?
The ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ actress has signed a multi-million dollar deal to
play the suave spy’s love interest in the 23rd James Bond movie – which is
set in Afghanistan – after being approached by director Sam Mendes.
This 007 is going to be the most ambitious 007 yet as Mendes plans to
reinvent the genre. Freida will star alongside Daniel Craig, who will be reprising his role as Bond once more, while US actress Olivia Wilde has been approached to play a double-crossing UN worker. Freida is said to have beaten Megan Fox to the role (Thank goodness they didn’t choose her! We’re not sure her ego could get any bigger).
We think Freida fits the Bondy girl mould pretty well considering the stunning, exotic beauties that have come before her. Halle Berry, Ursula Andress, Eva Green, Michelle Yeoh and Jane Seymour.
So what do you think? Will Freida make a good Bond girl? Who was your favourite 007 femme fatale?
