Berenice Marlohe: Daniel Craig is 'Absolutely Wonderful'

Berenice Marlohe: Daniel Craig is 'Absolutely Wonderful'

Daniel Craig steps out with a newspaper on Monday (March 26) in London, England.

The 44-year-old English actor was spotted filming in Surrey earlier in the month – Daniel and Javier Bardem worked together to shoot scenes for their upcoming Bond movie Skyfall.

“It’s great. Daniel is absolutely wonderful as a human being and he has a wonderful sense of humour, so it’s really good to work in these conditions as actors because you feel very relaxed and part of a family,” she shared.

Berenice Marlohe, the newest Bond girl, recently told the UKPA that she loved starring opposite Daniel.

Skyfall will be released on November 9.

    Skyfall: Naomie Harris to play an ambitious Bondgirl
    Bondgirls are known for their beauty and glamour but actress Naomie Harris, who plays field agent Eve in 23rd 007 movie ‘Skyfall’ opposite Daniel Craig, promises to bring ‘brains and ambition’ too to the role.
    “It is one dimensional when Bondgirls are just glamorous and beautiful. As Bond becomes more human, women in his life have to evolve to match this change. They need to have more potential for a man like James Bond to fall in love with them. He will not be attracted to a woman who is merely beautiful. They have to be equal to Bond,” Harris told PTI in a telephonic interview from Los Angeles.
    In the past few Bond films actresses like Halle Berry, Eva Green, Olga Kurylenko and Gemma Arterton have brought more edge to the character and Harris is happy to be part of this growing tradition.

    “I love playing strong, independent women onscreen and that’s what drew me to the character of field agent Eve. She is very capable, intelligent and ambitious. She wants to be seen as the new Bond and that’s what she is aiming for and I love that ambition in her,” says Harris.
    ‘Skyfall’, which was delayed for almost two years after MGM faced financial trouble, will be released by Sony Pictures Entertainment in India on November 2 this year. It is currently being filmed in different parts of the world.
    Craig and Judi Dench are returning as Bond and M while Oscar-winner Javier Bardem plays the main antagonist. Harris and French actress Berenice Marlohe help Bond in his mission to unravel another mystery in the Sam Mendes directed film.
    35-year-old Harris, best known for her roles in ‘Miami Vice’, ’28 Days Later’ and ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ series, says it was difficult not to get star-struck while working with the famous actors.
    “It was very intimidating during the first few days. Daniel, Judi Dench, Sam Mendes and Javier Bardem they all are the actors that I admire. They are top of their game. I had to pinch myself to remain true to my role. I was totally
    star-struck,” says Harris.
    The actress believes that director Mendes, known for his films like ‘American Beauty’ and ‘Revolutionary Road’, would add a lot of humour and layers to the story.
    “Sam (Mendes) wants to add much more humour to the movie. He is fundamentally known for his relationship stories and that will reflect in this film too. He wants the audience to engage and relate with Bond more. It is going to be fantastic Bond movie. The stakes are biggger and better this time.”
    The actress, who grew up watching Bond films, says she never imagined that she would be a part of the secret world of the spy series.
    “I have been a huge fan of Bond movies. I don’t know anyone who isn’t. They are full of glamour, action and humour. It was part of my growing up years. I am working with some of the greatest actors of my time. I love the idea of entering
    the secret world of MI6,” she says.
    It was not a cakewalk for Harris to fit in the character as she trained hard for close to two months before filming. Harris says it was her most demanding role physically.
    “I started training from October. I am off to Turkey now for more training. I learnt to fire machine gun for Miami Vice but most of the action that I did in the past was to get in shape. In this film I will be doing most of the stunts that I learnt during my training. I have never trained this hard for any movie.”
    Harris is hugely impressed with the dedication of her famous co-star Craig. “He is fantastic, has great sense of humour but he is very serious at the same time. He trains for two hours after the shoot. He is very dedicated but also knows how to laugh at himself.”

    Awww, that’s horrible. I was once in a similar situation, and it’s one of those stories that sound hillarious later, but surely wasn’t funny at the time…

    as a present to myself, and to others I am sure, I will be posting “my fav Dan pictures from photobucket.”. because I can!!

    OH! questions that kept me awake…Not reallly, but—what book was Mikeal burning when we saw the first seconds of that scene when he was sitting in front of the f’shack with blanket? was it Vonnegut? his fav author? hhhhmmmm….yeah. kurt was all i could read. I love the little nuances thrown into the film! classy.——CAT?!!
    oh–and i will post a vid of Freezie running…but it has some personal stuff on it–so I will explain it right now, then post it randomly so maybe people won’t catch on and will wonder wtf I am posting…ok, so in the vid i will post later, I am the camera person, daughter one is with Freezie on the leash (ohmy gash hysterical to see this-still kills me laughing), and the yellow orb is a whiffle ball cuz daughter number 2 is batting with my Dan, and the two diff activities kinda collide. And Freezie is, well, not used to the action outside cuz he is an inside cat. so that is the explanation–i will post after MANY Dan postings

  • Daniel invited by The Queen

    On her Majesty’s secret service
    James Bond and The Queen
    to open The Olympic Games
    JAMES Bond star Daniel Craig is to open the 2012 Olympic Games ceremony after a personal invitation from The Queen.
    She asked him into Buckingham Palace to film spectacular scenes as 007 for London’s sporting extravaganza.

    In the film, he arrives by Royal Appointment to be told his latest mission is to launch the Games.

    Her Majesty may even make a cameo appearance but the Palace is keeping details a secret.

    A billion people watching on TV around the world will see Bond getting his instructions before he is taken by helicopter to parachute into the Olympic stadium in Stratford, East London.

    Daniel, 44, and a film crew headed by Trainspotting director Danny Boyle were given unprecedented access to The Queen’s private rooms on Tuesday.

    They also shot helicopter and parachuting scenes.
    Danny, creative director of the opening ceremony, has chosen to make MI6 agent Bond a key part of the spectacle which will kick-start the Olympics.

    The Queen, who is celebrating her Diamond Jubilee this year, had to personally sanction the move — which will give a glimpse inside the famous landmark.

    A source on set said: “It’s a huge coup for BBC producers and Danny to be allowed into the Palace and have the Queen involved.

    “They wanted the most iconic British film character inside the building most associated with London and with the monarch — and they got it.
    “It will be a magical scene for all watching at home and inside the stadium on July 27.

    “Working out the logistics of filming has taken months and hasn’t been easy — but it will be worth it in the end.”

    Crew members were given strict instructions not to tell any members of the public what they were filming. Cameras and mobiles were banned on the set. The film — to be fed into the opening ceremony — was given the name “The Arrival”.
    Julia McKenzie, who played Miss Marple in the ITV show, was also involved in the shoot.

    This year marks the 50th anniversary of British Bond movies.

    A Palace spokesman said: “Buckingham Palace is involved in a number of filming projects during this special Jubilee year and we would not go into details of any particular project until nearer the time of transmission.”
    Yesterday one of the Queen’s granddaughters, Princess Beatrice, 23, was among 5,000 runners who completed a five-mile lap of the Olympic Park.

    She crossed the finish line in the Olympic stadium in front of an invited crowd of 12,000 — then gave medals to winners in the event organised by the National Lottery.

    THE Sun’s Royal Editor Duncan Larcombe says: “The Queen is determined to make sure 2012 is unforgettable.
    “By inviting James Bond into her home for this film, Her Majesty has shown she wants to be at the heart of the celebrations.

    “Once again it’s a refreshing sign of her sense of humour and willingness to step outside tedious protocol.

    “She may be turning 86 this month but the monarch clearly still loves a party. And she retains that sixth sense of all that puts the Great into Great Britain.”
