Exclusive Secret Visit to New Bond Flick 'Skyfall'
April 05, 2012
Mark Steines traveled across the pond for an exclusive set visit for the much-anticipated next installment in the James Bond series Skyfall, which comes as the franchise celebrates its 50th anniversary!
In theaters this fall, Skyfall finds Daniel Craig returning for his third outing as James Bond, and this time his loyalty to M (Judi Dench) is tested as her past comes back to haunt her. As MI6 comes under attack, 007 must track down and destroy the threat, no matter how personal the cost.
Mark caught up with Daniel about appearing in the 23rd bond spy thriller, which the star says has all the classic elements, but also adds some new twists."That was one of the keys with this film for us. There are those classic lines that we have to have in there, and we've got them and we've got all that going on, but we wanted to sort of reinvent a few as well." He also reveals whether we'll see his blue speedos this time around.
Mark also caught up with the two new lovely Bond girls, Naomie Harris and Bérénice Marlohe. Naomie plays the exotic field agent, while Bérénice is the sexy Severine, who she has a dark side.
Bérénice -- a 32-year-old French actress -- explained to Mark how she got the part. "I tried to.... how do you say... track down, every people involved in that movie. And in France everyone was saying to me 'No way, you have no relations. You don't look like the other actresses so you will never do it.'"

Skyfall hits theaters and IMAX November 9.
