The Glamorous Skyfall Bond Girl

The voluptuous Bond siren known as Severine in the 23rd Bond film “Skyfall” has brought back not only the full figured Bond Girl but a throwback from the Thunderball Bond Girls of Claudine Auger and Luciana Paluzzi.

Bérénice Marlohe was born in Paris, France, daughter to a French mother and a Khmer-Chinese father. Her mother is a teacher and her father is a doctor. She originally held aspirations of becoming a pianist, as well as an artist, studying at the prestigious French arts school Conservatoire de Paris for ten years.

She had trouble getting on screen roles in France because people did not think she fit the mould of a French actress. Before Bond, her performances were primarily rooted in small roles on French TV.

She is known to be a strong believer in fate. During an interview, she claimed to have dreamt of acting alongside Javier Bardem six months before the Bond audition. After the dream, she knew that everything would be fine. It was not until the second audition for Skyfall that someone actually mentioned to her that Bardem might also be cast.

“I felt safe because I felt strongly connected with the Bond universe since many, many times so instinctively, I knew what I wanted to reach and Sam [Mendes] is so amazing because he’s so brilliant, but more than that, he’s a beautiful human being, with a wonderful sense of humor and you just feel at home and free to explore things. I could try everything I wanted to try, thanks to those amazing people,” she said.

“Skyfall” has already set a new UK record, breaking the UK box office record previously held by “Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part 2.” In its first week in theaters in the UK, “Skyfall” earned $59.86 million. “Deathly Hallows Part 2″ earned $57.4 million. The Bond flick is also the third-highest grossing film of the year in the UK, behind “The Dark Knight Rises” and “The Avengers.”
