Bérénice Marlohe the new Bond Girl Severine, in Skyfall

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.

Berenice Marlohe james bond skyfall new bond girl

After months-nay, years-of are-they-or-aren’t-they news concerning the making of the next James Bond film, last week, we finally got confirmation that Bond 23 is, in fact, happening! And it has a name: Skyfall. How mysterious! For SkyfallSam Mendes takes over the directorial reigns from Martin Campbell, the director of the last two Bond flicks, Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace, Daniel Craig returns as 007, Javier Bardem has signed on to play the dastardly villain… and of course there’s got to be a Bond girl or two. Ladies and gentlemen, meet Berenice Marlohe, who, alongside familiar face Naomi Harris, will be stepping into the shoes of one of Skyfall’s exotic Bond girls. But you may be wondering: Who exactly is Berenice Marlohe and why haven’t you heard of her before? Well, since she’s a relative unknown, there’s plenty to learn about her. Allow us to enlighten you with these 20 facts about the French beauty!

Before we begin, a note about the number: Normally, yes, we’d be sharing with you 25 facts about Berenice, not 20. However, information about this lovely lady is extremely scarce, so we’ve pulled together everything we could find-which amounted to five facts fewer than usual. Forgive us just this once; we still guarantee there are many tidbits of information here that you don’t know. And away we go

1. At 32 (she was born on May 19, 1979), Berenice is one of the older Bond girls in recent memory.Eva Green (Vesper Lynde in Casino Royale) was only 26 at the time she donned the mantel and Gemma Arterton (Strawberry Fields in Quantum of Solace) was a mere 22.

2. But! She’s still not the oldest recent Bond girl on the block: Halle Berry beats her by 4 years.She was 36 when she played Jinx in Die Another Day.

3. Skyfall could well be Berenice’s big break. Up til now, she’s worked primarily in French television on shows like Père et Maire (Father and Mayor) and Femmes de Loi (Women of the Law).

4. In fact, she’s a relative newcomer to acting: Her first gig was a short entitled La Discordance(The Discordance), which she made just four years ago in 2007.

5. Naturally, though, you won’t be surprised to find out that she’s also a model. That’s what she did before breaking into acting.

Meet the New Bond Girl Bérénice Marlohe

Bérénice Marlohe Daniel Craig James Bond film SkyfallShe’s following in the smoking-hot footsteps of Teri Hatcher, Halle Berry, Denise Richards, Ursula Andress, Eva Green and other iconic femme fatales who’ve smooched a certain British spy.

Meet Berenice Marlohe, the newest “Bond Girl” revealed at Thursday’s press conference for Skyfall, the newest James Bond film.

The raven-haired beauty will play “a glamorous, enigmatic character” named Severine opposite Daniel Craig, who’s confirmed to reprise his role for the third time.

Marlohe — a French model and actress with mostly French television credits on her resume so far — sizzled at Thursday’s press conference in a red-hot, skin-tight gown designed by Antonio Berardi. “It’s great,” Marlohe told the Daily Mail of the frock. “I feel very sexy in it.”

Another stunner to sizzle alongside Craig, 43, is British actress Naomie Harris, who will play a field agent named “Eve.”

At the big reveal — Craig, Marlohe and Harris joined costars Javier Bardem, Dame Judi Dench, Ralph Fiennes, Albert Finney and Ben Whishaw — director Sam Mendes said that Skyfall will “not connect” with the plots of the two most recent Bond films, Quantum of Solace andCasino Royale.

“Bond’s loyalty to M [Dench] is tested as her past comes back to haunt her. As M16 comes under attack, 007 must track down and destroy the threat, no matter how personal the cost,” said the film’s press release.
