Entertainment Wise reports that Eva Green (Vesper Lynd in Casino Royale) was initially reluctant in taking the role of the Bond girl in the new 007 film.
‘My first reaction was that it was a big action movie… it’s a Bond girl and I don’t want to do it,’ said Green. ‘But then producer Barbara Broccoli insisted that I read the script. I read it and thought it was quite unusual. I was very much surprised by the relationship Bond has with Vesper.’
And why did Green choose to appear in the new James Bond film? ‘It’s beautiful love story. That’s why I wanted to do it. Not because it’s Bond.’
