Bérénice Marlohe a glamorous and enigmatic Bond Girl

With the new James Bond movie Skyfall, there is a new James Bond Girl by the name Bérénice Marlohe. This is the 23rd 007 movie of the James Bond franchise after the previous Casino Royale flick. Daniel Craig will be playing 007 and the villain will be Javier Bardem. One familiar face is Naomi Harris who will be one of the girls in the movie but Bérénice Marlohe is a new face to the movie. While she is relatively unknown, there are several new things about her that have emerged. She was born on May 19, 1979 making her 32 this year. She is then the oldest bond girl to don that mantel because the previous flick Casino Royale’s actor Eva Green who played Vesper Lynde was only 26 years old at the shoot while Gemma Arterton who played as Strwaberry Fields on Quantum of Solace was just 22 years of age for that movie. At 32 years of age, Bérénice Marlohe is without doubt the oldest to play that role but this French beauty has the sparkle and moves to put it off as the exotic bond girl as it has been in the previous movies.

However, she is not the oldest to have played that role because Halle Berry was 36 years of age when she played Jinx in Die another Day James Bond Movie. Skyfall could be her first big break because this French beauty had been previously playing in French television shows such as the Père et Maire (Father and Mayor) and Femmes de Loi (Women of the Law) and it will also be her big welcome into the big screen because her first gig was in a short film which she did in 2007. However, she is not new to the lime light because she was a model before who graced the catwalk before she ventured into acting. That explains her sexy body which is perfect for the new role she will be playing. She is said to be married but seems to keep her private life just that, private because it is not known who her husband is. Maybe after a few more appearances on the big screens we will know. Bérénice’s big screen debut was just this year in 2011 in a movie known as L’Art de Séduire (The Art of Seduction) which is a French film still. She has not been in any English big screens as Skyfall will be her first.

Her prowess in playing sexy characters is not new because she previously played similar character in a French medical drama Équipe Médicale d’Urgence. She is said to be a go-getter because after she heard that the casting for Skyfall which was being done in Paris where she is based, she contacted the casting director personaly and got the spot despite an intense competition. Bérénice Marlohe is the second French actress to play Bond girl others being Claudine Auger who played in the 1965 Thunderball, Caroline Bouque in For Your Eyes Only, 1981, Sophie Marceau in The World is Not Enough in 1996, Eva Green in 2006’s Casino Royale and Olga Kurylenko in Qunatum of Solace in 2008.
