Bond girl wants to come back to SA

2012-11-23 13:13
Johannesburg - As the first Bond Girl in the franchise's 50 year history to do so, Berenice Marlohe attended the Johannesburg premiere of the latest James Bond film, Skyfall.

She's visiting South Africa for a brief two days as part of her 3-month long worldwide tour to promote the film, and Marlohe hopes to return soon.
This is not her first trip to South Africa as she visited Cape Town five years ago.

However, she was quick to point out during a press conference held on Thursday for her by Heineken and Sony, "I just arrived yesterday but I look forward to coming back because I'm leaving tomorrow and I really want to see a lion. It's one of my dreams."

Despite her tiring schedule, Marlohe is excited by how much her role as Bond Girl Severine – her very first English speaking role - has been a dream come true for her.

"It's been fantastic. I got to meet amazing human beings, first of all.

"Daniel Craig, Sam Mendes, Barbara Brocolli are really encouraging people. It's been an unforgettable experience."

Throughout the twenty-minute press conference, she constantly referred particularly to her director and leading man, noting that with both Sam Mendes and Daniel Craig, the latter of whom she met for the first time at her audition, "there was so much room for creativity and a sense of humour."

Skyfall opens in South African cinemas on Friday 30 November.
