The Hollywood Interview features a discussion with Canadian actress Stana Katic. While currently the female star of the ABC’s new police drama Castle, James Bond fans will best remember her as Corinne Veneau in last year’s Quantum of Solace.
While the interview focuses mostly on her current work on Castle, her brief turn as a Bond girl was also brought up.
While Katic doesn’t appear in Quantum of Solace until the end of the film along with Simon Kassianides, she revealed that she was originally up for the role that eventually went to Gemma Arterton.
‘It was a blast! I really wanted to be a part of that film, and was up for the role of Strawberry Fields originally, but they felt I wasn’t right for it, plus I didn’t want to play someone who got killed, and everyone gets killed in that bloody movie!’
She also spoke about working alongside Daniel Craig and director Marc Forster: ‘I got to spend three days working on that legendary sound stage in London. Daniel Craig was great, very funny, very charming. And Marc Forster was an amazing director. We’ve become friends and he has such an amazing, light touch as a director, and at the same time, has this incredible core strength, which is a great combination for a director to have.’
‘In many ways [Marc] reminds me of the way Johnny Depp played the character of Sir James Matthew Barrie in Finding Neverland. I wonder if Johnny modeled his performance after Marc.’
