Moviefone has scored an interview with Caterina Murino, who plays Solange in Casino Royale. Her appearance in the 21st official James Bond film is her first English-speaking movie role.
When asked if being a Bond girl has changed her life in any ways, Murino said: ‘Now wherever I go I have a red carpet for everything. It’s strange because I was very happy just as an actress to make the movie. And now just going around the world, making the press conference and everything is so strange. It changes your life. And I am very glad to be a Bond girl… for a little bit.’
‘Solange, she is not the typical Bond girl because she doesn’t try to kill James Bond. Also, I have only one stunt scene… I gallop with my horse on the beach with a green bikini. Typical Bond,’ she says.
When asked what was her favourite part about working on the film, Murino said: ‘Um, sharing the night with James Bond. And I loved also the morning when we shot the galloping scene on the beach. It was nice… everything you see on the screen, that’s me. I didn’t use a stunt double.’
The one question that seems to pop into every Casino Royale interview–what do you think of Daniel Craig as 007?–was also asked here. ‘[He’s] more realistic, more tough, more romantic. He looks like more of a human being… I love the idea that for the first time you understand that James Bond is not the good guy. It’s more in the human nature to have the good and the bad inside of us.
