Having grown up watching Daniel Craig as James Bond on screen, it was dream come true for Lea Seydoux to star opposite the “intense” actor in “Spectre”, the latest film in the 007 franchise.
The French actress stars as Bond’s former enemy Mr White’s daughter and plays a key role in his quest to uncover a sinister organisation that may be connected to his childhood in the new Sam Mendes-directed movie.
“I grew up with Daniel. So my Bond is, of course, Daniel… I think he’s great. He’s very intense and we love him and he’s the best Bond for me. There’s something very intense that I really love. It became more psychological with him, as well. And more interesting,” Lea told reporters while promoting the movie in Cancun, Mexico.
The “Blue Is The Warmest Colour”
star said working on the movie was her best.
“She is different from what you can expect and she will change Bond’s life and maybe I can reveal something. She’s Mr White’s daughter.
“I can say that it’s been my best experience, really. It’s been incredible to work with everyone on this film. I feel very honoured to be part of this film and I’m so happy to be part of it,” the 30-year-old actress said.
Craig returns as Bond for the fourth time. The other returning cast members are Ralph Fiennes, Ben Whishaw, Naomie Harris while Oscar-winner Christoph Waltz, Italian star Monica Bellucci, “Sherlock” star Andrew Scott and David Bautista are the new additions in the movie.
“Spectre”, the 24th James Bond film, produced by Albert R Broccolis EON Productions, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios, and Sony Pictures Entertainment, is set for release in India on November 20 in English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
