    Berenice Marlohe Talks SKYFALL, Playing a Femme Fatale/Bond Girl, How She Was Cast, and More
    What makes Daniel sexy?

    Marlohe: What you see on magazines is very boring, because it’s cold and most of the time it doesn’t have charisma. What’s very important is personality and what you have to say, because then it’s the magical aura you spread; it’s your personality. So when I got to meet him finally, he had such a beautiful humanity, very grounded, very nice personality, sense of humor, truly a great person. So this is what makes someone sexy or attractive.

    What makes Daniel Craig special as Bond?

    Harris: I really, really love Daniel Craig as Bond. Casino Royale, for me, was the first Bond movie that really affected me and really connected with me and it was because of his portrayal of Bond because there was more frailty to his Bond, he was more human. If he fell, it was like he was really going to get hurt. So, for me as an audience member, there was more at stake. And also, the idea of a Bond who actually feels and gets connected to a Bond woman and that’s something I haven’t seen before in the previous Bonds and I felt like it was more emotional because of that and a better journey as an audience by watching it.

    Director Sam Mendes Talks SKYFALL, How to Craft a Bond Film, the Franchise’s Similarity to DOCTOR WHO, and More
    Mendes: The first time I saw the movie, I was like, “You’ve got to be joking! You can’t do that to the poor man!” But it was too…they were playing almost embarrassment, almost apologized for having a new Bond and I thought that was wrong, and I thought what they got right was Casino Royale. There was a kind of “We don’t need Q, we don’t need Moneypenny. We’ve got this character. We’re going right back to basics. He’s real, he’s in a real situation. Let’s start all over again.” I thought that was very refreshing.

    That’s why I mentioned the word in the press conference, “regeneration” rather than “evolving,” because I feel it is like, you know, we have Doctor Who…there’s a geek answer…we have Doctor Who and I was brought up on the idea of Doctor Who, who at the end of his final episode, he dissolves and a new actor pops up and he regenerates and it’s a whole other character: sometimes it’s an old man, sometimes it’s a young man, but he just changes. I’ve always loved that idea.

    Armed and dangerous: Daniel Craig’s Bond causes chaos in a Turkish market in latest scenes for Skyfall
    PUBLISHED: 12:57 GMT, 2 May 2012 |

    As much as he tries to be discreet, there will always be times when James Bond’s fight against evil caused chaos to the public.
    And in the upcoming film Skyfall, 007 ruins a Turkish market stall as he gives chase to – or runs away from – a villain.
    Spotted filming on location in Istanbul, actor Daniel Craig leaves a market trader smarting when he knocks his orange stall over.

    The 23rd Bond film sees 007′s loyalty to MI6 head M (Dame Judi Dench) challenged when he finds out secrets from her past.
    He also experiences a ‘combination of lassitude, boredom, depression [and] difficulty with what he’s chosen to do for a living’.
    Speaking to Collider, Mendes said the film would delve deeper into Bond’s relationship with M.

    He said: ‘We’ve gone further into their relationship… I thought it was a master stroke when they cast Judi (Dench) way back… because the character… became this female figure, there was a maternal aspect to it.
    ‘There was much more complexity in the relationship and I think we’ve taken that a little further.
    ‘Judi, to me, is one of the great actors of the English-speaking world and so it’s a question of… what can we give her that will take her to another level we’ve never seen her before?’

    Playing the villain is Spanish actor Javier Bardem, whose character Raoul Silva has been described as ‘more than a villain’.
    The upcoming film stars French actress Bérénice Marlohe and Brit star Naomie Harris.
    Marlohe plays the ‘glamorous and enigmatic’ Sévérine, while Harris plays a field agent called Eve.
