Olga Kurylenko is the new Bond Girl, says Variety

Hat tip to CBn, who had it before I saw it. Variety is reporting that the new Bond girl (the female lead of Bond 22, that is) is Ukrainian actress Olga Kurylenko.

The official press release from Eon says:

Commenting on the announcement, Wilson and Broccoli said, “We are fortunate to continue in the Bond tradition of attracting the finest international actors for our starring roles. Mathieu [Amalric] in the role of Dominic Greene, a leading member of the villainous organization introduced in CASINO ROYALE, will be a powerful counterpart to Daniel’s portrayal of Bond. Olga Kurylenko will play the dangerously alluring Camille, who challenges Bond and helps him come to terms with the emotional consequences of Vesper’s betrayal.”

The press release adds that Fields is an MI6 agent, and that Judi Dench, Jeffrey Wright, and Giancarlo Giannini are returning to their roles from Casino Royale.

Two quick comments. First, Amalric had previously been reported as “Maurice Green;” this is definitely a better name. Second, in regard to Gemma Arterton: Told you so!

  1. Eva Green was beautiful as Vesper Lynd in Casino Royale, but it appears that Olga will be as sexy as hell as Camille in Bond 22.

  2. Deborah Lipp Says:

    She’s quite a beauty.

  3. So pretty…I think she was a model for Bebe clothing. I can’t wait to see the new Bond flick.

  4. Deborah Lipp Says:

    I’m more excited every day.
