On October 6, 2021, the new opus in the James Bond saga, Dying can wait, will finally be released in cinemas. Since agents 007 have succeeded over the years, many French actresses have had the chance to be offered a role alongside the various protagonists. We remember in particular the famous actress of La Boum Sophie Marceau who had caused a sensation alongside Pierce Brosnan in the film The world is not enough, in 1999.
But unlike her friend Léa Seydoux, who will once again play the James Bond girl in the next film, Sophie Marceau played an antagonist. “It’s not the James Bond Girl, it’s the ugly”, she had told about her character of Elektra King to our colleagues from Télé-Loisirs and to add: “The James Bond Girl, I may not have quite the measurements”. A landmark shoot for the one who played the rival of 007. “That’s part of the thing, we go deep into the character because it’s still, despite everything, ‘oversize’ characters as we say in fashion today, who are a bit caricatural”.
On the other hand, the actress Carole Bouquet did not enjoy playing in the saga in 1981 as she had told in the columns of Madame Figaro in 2015. “At the time, to play in a James Bond, you had to be a pretty plant but not necessarily a good actress. In addition, it was horrible to play in this film where there were so many special effects. sea”.
