She is currently filming the French comedy Un bonheur n’arrive jamais seul with Sophie Marceau, a former Bond girl herself. Bérénice is also a brand ambassador for Omega Watches.
Bérénice says of her character “Sévérine”: “She is mysterious: good, evil, adventurous. I had to give her a lot of substance and charisma, and the sexiness came from that.”
Bérénice now joins a long line of famous actresses who have previously starred in a James Bond movie, including Halle Berry, Gemma Arterton, Rosamund Pike and Famke Jansen
And the actress revealed she doesn’t think it’s a bad thing to carry the ‘Bond girl’ label.
“Well why not, it’s a great honour,’ she said. “I always felt very connected with the Bond movies and the Bond music – the orchestration is powerful – and I’ve always felt that, so it’s an honour actually.”
