8 actresses testing for Scandinavian James Bond 24 role
Headhunters star Synnove Macody Lund is one of eight actresses testing for the role of a Scandinavian woman in the next 007 adventure.
MI6-HQ is this morning reporting that Norwegian actress Synnove Macody Lund - best known for her work in Headhunters - is one of eight contenders for the role of a Scandinavian character in the upcoming James Bond 24.
The new Bond film, being directed by Skyfall helmer Sam Mendes, is set to start shooting later this year. And Synnove has confirmed that she's met Sam Mendes at Pinewood, following a screentest in Denmark. It's reported that the role she's up for is one of a woman "with a troubled past who will serve as a brief love interest for Bond". Bond, of course, will be played by Daniel Craig again.
Also in line for the role - which is not the more traditional Bond girl role (whatever the traditional Bond girl role is now) - are Disa Ostrand and Ida Engvoll. The lead female role in the movie, however, is set to be a British one.
James Bond 24 has a release date of October 23rd 2015 in the UK.
