Daniel Craig was part of the casting process and remembers trying to find the right actress to play Camille; Finding beautiful girls who can act can be tricky but we narrowed it down and Olga just nailed the audition, she was fantastic. She is a really good actress, plus she is beautiful, so it just fitted. She has this fantastic icy detachment about her, which is really essential for this part because both she and Bond are on this journey of revenge. They become reluctant partners and that makes for a very interesting relationship, especially because we are taking the story straight on from CASINO ROYALE where Bond fell in love and had his heart broken. That had a very strong knock on effect and thats what this next movie is all about, so meeting someone else and falling in love didnt make any sense whatsoever. That said, Bond still has a bit of fun with Agent Fields played by Gemma Arterton. Gemmas character is great and she plays it to the hilt. Shes an agent who seems clueless at first but she is smarter than we first think and she teams with Bond. He is hurt and damaged so thank god for Gemma!
French actor, Mathieu Amalric plays Dominic Greene, the Bond villain. Mathieu is a tremendous actor and Bond villains have to have an intelligence about them. He is not a mad scientist or some crazed egg head trying to take over the world through science. He is just an aggressive man with high intellect who is using his talent to manipulate people and grab as much of the worlds landmass as he possibly can in his lifetime, he doesnt care who he hurts, no one will get in his way. Mathieu has just nailed it, hes understood the part completely and he is going for it thats what you want in a Bond bad guy.
Despite the hard work, or maybe because of it, Craig is enthused. Im incredibly excited about what we have done, Im amazed how much we have crammed in. We have been to so many locations, the film looks stunning and I think we have got something really special, in fact, I know we have something really special.Read Part I
