Is actress Naomie Harris about to become a Bond Girl? Well if News of the World and Shadow & Act are correct in their reporting- the answer is yes.
Naomie, best known for her role in the bigscreen adaptation of ‘Miami Vice’ and the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ movies, was reportedly offered a role in the 23rd installment of the James Bond series.
A spokesperson for Eon Productions confirmed that Harris had been offered the role of a character described as “Daniel Craig’s [Bond] sexy sidekick,” but declined to say much else about the part or whether Naomi had even accepted the role.
Should Harris take on the part, she will be the fifth brown sista to play a Bond Girl. Trina Parks played Thumper in ‘Diamonds Are Forever (1971),’ Gloria Hendry played Rosie Carver in ‘Live and Let Die (1973),’ Grace Jones played May Day in ‘A view to a Kill (1985)’ and Halle Berry played Jinx Johnson in ‘Die Another Day (2002).’
