    In a new interview with the londonpaper, Mathieu Amalric, who’ll be playing head villain Dominic Greene in Quantum of Solace, further elaborated on the decidedly nasty character.

    ‘I’ve been taking details, the smile of Tony Blair, the craziness of Sarkozy (French President), he’s the worst villain we’ve ever had. He’s really dangerous. In fact he walks around thinking he’s in a Bond film,’ he said.

    As previously reported on, Amalric mentioned that his character and Dainiel Craig’s 007 will be involved in a particularly big fight towards the end of the film. Citing Greene’s lack of ability with his fists, Amalric said: ‘He was supposed to have a secret skill. But we had this idea that maybe if the villain doesn’t know how to fight, James Bond would be more surprised. Sometimes anger can be much more dangerous.’

    ‘I’m going to fight like in school. I was going to say “like a woman”.’

    He joked of playing the part: ‘You are allowed to do things that you are not allowed to do in real life, especially with a woman.’

    In related Quantum of Solace news, Olga Kurylenko, who stars as Bond girl Camille, also briefly spoke about the film.

    ‘Who doesn’t want to be a Bond girl? It’s a cult movie. I’m not worried about being stereotyped,’ she stated.

    ‘Camille is a strong independent woman who is charming and sensual. Bond women are strong at the same time as being feminine. I’ve never worked so hard training for any other movie, I’m using weapons, driving cars and involved in fight scenes.’
