- BOND 23
After months of rumors, British actress Naomie Harris will be in the newest Bond film, but NOT as the newest Bond girl.
Harris has reportedly been cast in Bond 23 ... as the new Miss Moneypenny.
Moneypenny, as any Bond fan can tell you, is M's personal assistant and the object of 007's unconsummated advances. This will be Miss Moneypenny's first appearance in the rebooted Bond series starring Daniel Craig as 007 and Judi Dench as M.
Moneypenny has been played by five actresses, most notably by the late Lois Maxwell in all the Bond films from Dr. No to A View to a Kill. Caroline Bliss played Moneypenny in the Timothy Dalton films, while the aptly named Samantha Bond portrayed her in the Pierce Brosnan entries.
In addition to reporting Harris' casting, The Daily Mail also says acclaimed actors Javier Bardem and Ralph Fiennes are set to appear in Bond 23, which begins filming later this year.
