    By daniel on 2001-01-15

    British babe Kirsty Gallacher is the latest in a long line of beautiful women rumoured to make an appearence in Bond 20.

    Britains NOW magazine reports that Gallacher not only wants to play a “high-kicking” Bond Girl, but she’s also been cast as one. ‘Rory’ was kind enough to send in the article;

    KIRSTY GALLACHER caused a stir recently when she posed for a series of pictures in lads mag maxim. In the interview, the sky sports presenter said she’d love to have a role as a ‘high-kicking’ bond girl. It seems kirsty was dropping a few hints because she’s just asked her bosses for time off this summer for that very reason. Kirsty,23, has landed a part in the next bond film, which is currently in pre-production at pinewood studios with the working title of Beyond The Ice. Little is known about the plot, although Pierce Brosnan will once again take the leading role. Just as she stated in the interview, Kirsty will have a small part playing a kick-boxing baddie. The stunning daughter of golfer Bernard Gallacher, she’s keen on breaking into movie and television acting and recently returned to work from her christmas break, barely able to contain her exitement about her big break.

    More and more papers are reporting that Pinewood Studio’s is prepping up to start work on Bond 20 but most are still reporting that the title is “Beyond The Ice”, most likely because their articles went to print well before Eon’s denial of the title.
