The speculation is over. British actress Naomie Harris has officially been named the newest bond girl in the James Bond film series. Naomie will initially play an M16 field agent named Eve in “Skyfall,” the 23rd Bond movie to date, before transforming into Bond’s foil, Miss Moneypenny. Actor Daniel Craig will play her leading man.

According to Naomie:

Eve “[believes] she is Bond’s equal, but she is really his junior.”

You may remember Naomie from her roles in two of the “Pirates of the Caribbean” movies; she also starred in “28 Days Later.” The 35-year-old actress says she’s been working hard to prep for this role in the 007 series.

“I’ve been doing yoga three times a week, stunt driving, and firing machine guns—which I discovered I had a real taste for.  I’m raring to go!”

“Skyfall” is due for release in the UK Oct. 26 and will hit US theatres Nov. 9. Will you check it out?
