London actress Naomie Harris has revealed she never dared dream of becoming a Bond girl when she started out in acting.
The 35-year-old stars alongside Daniel Craig, Dame Judi Dench and Javier Bardem in the new James Bond film Skyfall, currently in production.
Harris revealed at the First Light Awards 2012 at the BFI Southbank: “I never thought it was a possibility, so it’s hugely exciting to be a Bond girl.
“I’m loving it. I love Sam Mendes. He’s a fantastic director. And Daniel Craig is incredible to work with, so I feel incredibly lucky.”
Harris said the advice she was given as a child by her drama teacher still rang true.
She said: “I started off at the Anna Scher theatre school in Islington and she was a real inspiration to me; super-passionate and also very, very down to earth.
“And she really taught me that acting was a job like any other job and not to have airs and graces about it, but just to be grateful because it’s a tough profession.”
