Rosamund Pike Says She Was Asked to Strip Down for Bond Girl Audition

Rosamund Pike played one of the Bond girls in the 2002 movie Die Another Day and she is opening up about her audition for the film.

The actress was just 21-years-old at the time when she was asked to drop her dress during the audition, though she refused.

“My first audition was for a Bond film and I remember them saying I was to drop my dress and appear in my underwear,” Rosamund said during an “Audible Session” interview (via THR). “On the day, I don’t know how I got the resolve and strength of mind, but I just thought ‘Actually sod that, if they’re gonna see me in my underwear, they better give me the job.’ So, I thought, ‘There’s no way I’m going to take off a dress in the audition for this tape to be sent around Los Angeles and to be judged on that.’”

Rosamund arrived at the audition dressed for the part, but the costume designer told her to wear something else.

“I realized I was in a completely different world and way out of my depth. So, I put on this shimmering sheath, or whatever the order of the day was, but I didn’t drop it,” she said.

Rosamund added that she felt comfortable on the set of the film.

Who Should Play James Bond After Daniel Craig? Vote for Your Choice to Play 007!

UPDATE on 8/20: This poll is now closed! Congrats to Sam Heughan on winning the fan vote!! Tom Hiddleston came in second place, and Luke Evans came in third place. Thank you to the fans for voting!

Rumors have already started to swirl as to which actor should play James Bond in the franchise after Daniel Craig ends his run as 007. Daniel will officially play the spy again in Bond 25, hitting theaters next year.

Just over the weekend, Idris Elba had to respond to the rumors that he was in the running to play the super spy.

We wanted to open the question up to the fans and see…who is YOUR choice to play James Bond in future 007 movies!?

We’ve compiled a list of some of the hottest actors from the UK to see who the fans believe should be picked for the iconic role. Past actors who have played Bond include Daniel, Pierce Brosnan, Sean Connery, Roger Moore, and more.

Idris Elba Seemingly Responds to James Bond Rumors

Idris Elba took to his Twitter account to seemingly respond to the rumors that he could be the next James Bond.

On Sunday (August 12), the 45-year-old actor took to Twitter to write, “my name’s Elba, Idris Elba,” which is of course, a play on 007′s famous phrase, “the name is Bond, James Bond.”

Idris also posted, “Don’t believe the HYPE…”

If you don’t know, the current Bond, Daniel Craig, is confirmed for one more film in the franchise. Daniel‘s Bond 25 will hit theaters on November 8, 2019.

Henry Cavill Reveals If He'd Play James Bond

Henry Cavill is in the middle of a press tour for Mission: Impossible – Fallout, and during a recent interview, he was asked about an intriguing future role.

Though Daniel Craig will be James Bond in one more film, the role will theoretically be open after that.

“I would love to do it of course,” Henry told Yahoo UK. “I think Bond would be a really fun role. It’s British, it’s cool. I think that now that I have my Mission: Impossible badge we can do real stunts and really amp it up as well. Not to say they weren’t doing real stunts I’m just saying it would be fun for me to actually take what I’ve learnt on this and carry it through to a movie like Bond. I’d love to play a Brit. I don’t get to play a Brit very often. So yes, I would love the opportunity and if they were to ask I would say ‘yes.’”
