Get to Know the New Bond Babes!

by | July 7, 2006 | Comments

Poor Edward Douglas. Recently the head editor of was required to visit the set of the new James Bond movie, "Casino Royale," and interview ALL THREE of the new Bond babes. How the guy struggled through a conversation with Eva Green, Catarina Murino, and Ivana Milicevic I’ll never know. My eyeballs would have popped right out of my skull.

CS: Catarina, what was your reaction when you learned that you were going to be a Bond Girl?
Catarina Murino: I screamed and jumped up and down. I was making a movie in Sardinia, and it was the day of a war, and I was a soldier with a baby, looking like a boy with a beard. It was so strange. Everybody was asking, "Are you sure the phone call was for you?"

CS: How have each of you been preparing to play your respective roles?
Eva: Actually, I got the part about two weeks ago, but I’m working on the script. I’m quite cerebral, so I’m imagining each scene and working on the character. I haven’t read the novel and I’m reading it at the moment. I’m a bad student, but I’m about to read it. In a way, I just imagined this movie as an old-fashioned movie in a very good way, because [Vesper] is quite sassy and sharp, and the relationship is kind of unusual and very funny, but you’ll just have to wait and see. I’m working at the moment.

Caterina: Everybody told me that I was preparing [to play a] Bond Girl. No way. I’m preparing a role, and that role is Solange. She’s not at all the classical Bond Girl that you know before. She’s somebody that’s very modern, but she’s married to a very bad man. The man is very bad with James Bond, and he’s very bad with me. She doesn’t have a very quiet life. I had to prepare my English and physically, I prepared because Solange loves to ride horses, so I rode a horse every day for a month. I had one of the best stuntmen in England for the horse.

CS: That brings us to the most American of the new Bond girls. Ivana, can you tell us a bit about who you play in the movie?
Ivana Milicevic: Well, I’m bad. I’m Le Chiffre’s girlfriend and I guess henchman, you could say his bodyguard. Usually, bad girls aren’t blonde, but look at me, I look angelic, and yet I’m not. We kind of were into that. I’m just always with Le Chiffre, taking care of him. I figure he saved me from post-war Croatia or maybe I saved him, I don’t know.

And that’s just a taste of the chat. Click here for the whole piece. "CR" opens in November.
