Re: Possible future Bond girls

+1 for Christina Hendricks.

Although once they went the Hallie Berry route, I always thought Angelina Jolie would be on the list.  Got a small taste with Mr. & Mrs. Smith.

Apparantely bookies have Margot Robbie as the favorite at the moment.

But then again,  the opinion of Bookmakers on these matters really come down to mere speculation. I find Margot Robbie a choice I'd be intrested in to see though! ajb007/biggrin

Re: Possible future Bond girls

Thsi is South-Korean actress Woo-hee Chun. She is thirthy years old, has several national and regional award wins and stars in the independent hit The Woman of No Name last year. she is the type of actress I prefer to see in a Bond movie: a stunning and talented woman who may be a star in her own country, but a fresh face for the global audience.

Re: Possible future Bond girls

You ment she looks like Tila Tequila without the tatoos and fascism, but with much more talent:

Re: Possible future Bond girls

Asian women who don't look middle aged have a strong tendency to look horribly young.  As a result this actress seems far too young for Craig even thought she is thirty.  She should wait for the next Bond actor.

Re: Possible future Bond girls

Josefine Frida Pettersen is one of the stars of Norwegian hit show SKAM. It's probably the coolest European young adult show today, and it's not unlikely a character in HBO's Girls "stole" her look this season. On Weibo, "Chinese Twitter", the SKAM group had 210 million readers by January 1, 2017.
Josefine is just 20, so I think Craig should keep his hands off, but the next Bond should be aware of her:

Re: Possible future Bond girls

Lily Cole has done well both as an actress and as a model, but she hasn't been in a big action/adventure movie yet. Now she's 32, a good age for a Bond girl and she has a striking look.

That look is very “action Bond Girl” or villain henchwoman—I like it.

Re: Possible future Bond girls

I think Lily Cole can come across as both aloof and almost alien-like or warm and charming, all depending on acting, light, makeup etc.

For me, Lily Cole doesn't do anything for me, but if she can act well then she can fit into the part.

Enough with the Remakes, prequels, sequels, reimaginings, alt history. How about something new?

Re: Possible future Bond girls

Gemma Arterton spoke about an issue in an interview that I've been thinking about too.
"There is a whole thing about 'strong women' now. I ask myself why? Not all women are strong"
"I want to tell stories about all women"

I couldn't agree more. The forcus should be on portraying interesting women, not only strong ones. A nervous wreck or a coward can be at least as interesting as a strong woman. The same goes for men, of course.

Re: Possible future Bond girls

It forever makes me sad Gemma so denies her QoS turn. She was great, and gave Fields more depth than I'm sure was on the page, as she has continued to be. Particularly on stage if you ever get the chance in the post-pandemic world.

Re: Possible future Bond girls

I hope she'll see the experience in a more positive light in the future.

This sounds fair, there should be a range of character types in a longrunning series, and the leather clad martial arts kicking action heroines they keep giving us all seem rather interchangeable. Similar moves, not much backstory, not much personality.
Yet everybody complains about Stacey Sutton panicking in situations where I know I would be panicking too. Her character did behave in a realistic fashion, but somehow that annoys audiences.

Actually maybe that's what makes characters like Elektra or Camille more interesting: they are each tough and ruthless, similar in that sense to the action heroine types, yet we know enough about their backstory, and see them behave in certain ways that reveals their trauma, that sets them apart as distinct individuals within a formulaic series.

Re: Possible future Bond girls

I remember Marie (Franka Potente) in The Bourne Identity when Bourne and her are attacked in his apartement. The violence is sudden and brutal. This is probably the first time Marie experiences violence of that type, and she reacts by going into shock. Many people, including men, would have reacted in the same way. I don't think it makes her a lesser person, it just makes her realistic and relatable.
I think it was the actress' choise and it was a good one.

I also like Vesper's reaction in the staircase fight in CR. She reacts with fear, like most people who aren't trained and experienced would have. But on the floor at the bottom when the henchman reaches for the gun, she grabs his hand tries to get the gun from him. I think this is a very good way to show what kind of person she is. Vesper isn't an agent or a soldier who is prepared for violence, but when she has to she has the courage to react and help Bond. Very good.
I think it's good to have a Bond girl who is trained for combat, but I like it when she has other strengths and other types of courage.

Re: Possible future Bond girls

I am sure she wasn't so sad that she didn't cash the check she was paid. I too hope she changes her tune. It seems like some women have done that in the past.

Re: Possible future Bond girls

Number 24, your three previous posts have all been spot-on! There definitely is a difference between strong (i.e. interesting, multidimensional) character writing for women and generic Mary Sue "tough girls".
