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.

love to be the casting agent for that one... word

that's not quite as creepy as it sounds... I just mean perusing the books of the world's most beautiful scandinavian women aint a bad job. OK, I am being creepy...

Yes. Yes you are.

That's a wonderful little conversation you're having with yourself there...

"A woman with a troubled past who will serve as a brief love interest for Bond" going with Skyfall she's probabbly going to die.

It's a constant in Bond films - not just Skyfall - that the first Bond girl dies.

Time for a change than!

Severine was wasted in Skyfall. An absolute travesty!

Headhunters was an awesome film - id recommend it to anyone, ps it has nicolaj coster waldau who stars in Game of thrones as jaimie lannister! need i say more.

im getting sick of craig, we need a new bond, that fits the descriiption, daniel does not fill in the role. whenever i watch a bond film in cinema i think wow this is a great action/thriller and daniels reallty good in it, until it occurs to me that this is a bond film, then all that goes out the window.

The "Bond sleeps with her and she get killed Trope" needs to go

Why? It's worked for 50 years. None more so than the last time when the film made a billion dollars. I'm not saying you are wrong just what's the reason why this particular thing needs to change?

Because its old and stale and misogynistic and I don't like it. In this modern age it would be nice if the women were not used as sexprops that can die as soon as they are used.

brief love interest! that says it all! short time....
