Berenice: Bond is like a family
New Bond girl Berenice Marlohe has revealed how she has been made to feel part of the James Bond family.
The French actress will star opposite Daniel Craig in the highly anticipated Skyfall, directed by Sam Mendes.
Berenice said: "It's great. Daniel is absolutely wonderful as a human being and he has a wonderful sense of humour, so it's really good to work in these conditions as actors because you feel very relaxed and part of a family."
The 32-year-old actress attended the Jameson Empire Film Awards 2012 at London's Grosvenor Hotel to present the Best Sci-Fi/Fantasy award to comic book adventure Thor, looking stunning in a red, figure-hugging Donna Karan dress.
Berenice gushed that she was delighted to be playing a "strong" and "colourful" character in the top secret film.
She said: "I always felt connected to the James Bond movies because they are so unique and the characters are, whether bad girls or good girls, are very colourful and you don't see that in every movie."
She laughed that her character saw "a bit" of action in the film.
