Naomie Harris' secret Bond audition

June 21st, 2011

Naomie Harris has admitted she has had a "top secret" audition for the next James Bond film.

The British actress wasn't even allowed to see the script for the forthcoming movie - which sees Daniel Craig reprise his role as the iconic British spy - and has no idea what role she will play if director Sam Mendes offers her a part.

She told BBC Radio 1's 'Newsbeat' programme: "All I can say is I've met the Bond team, I've met Sam Mendes, they're all wonderful. I've auditioned for Bond.

"My audition was really great actually because it's so top secret, the whole Bond thing. I hadn't realised how top secret it was.

"I've auditioned for a lot of things before but never for something where you can't see the script, it's that secret. I auditioned with a scene from 'Quantum of Solace'.

"You don't know what role you're going up for either, so everybody gets given a scene from a previous Bond movie.

"I don't know whether it's true or not that I'm going to be an intelligent Bond girl. I don't know at all but I'd like it."

Naomie would be thrilled to land a role in the iconic movie series because she knows how much it would mean to her family.

She added: "I've been the biggest fan of Bond for the longest time. I love the Bond movies. My whole family loves it and they'd be so proud of me."

The as yet untitled Bond 23 is scheduled for release on October 26, 2012.
