The new Bond girl in Skyfall, Berenice Marlohe says that before landing the film role opposite Daniel Craig, she spent years in Paris struggling to make it to the big screen, with agents constantly telling her that she had the wrong look.



Marlohe, who has mixed French, Chinese and Cambodian ancestry, was turned down for countless roles before director Sam Mendes saw her potential. “She has that thing that many of the classic Bond girls have, which is that she’s a real woman with a mature sexuality... In some lights she’s Western, in some lights she’s very exotic,” Mendes said about Marlohe.
