Bérénice Marlohe PERSONAL TRIVIA

Berenice Marlohe

1. At 32 (she was born on May 19, 1979), Berenice is one of the older Bond girls in recent memory. Eva Green (Vesper Lynde in Casino Royale) was only 26 at the time she donned the mantel and Gemma Arterton (Strawberry Fields in Quantum of Solace) was a mere 22.

2. But! She’s still not the oldest recent Bond girl on the block: Halle Berry beats her by 4 years. She was 36 when she played Jinx in Die
Another Day.

3. Skyfall could well be Berenice’s big break. Up til now, she’s worked primarily in French television on shows like Père et Maire (Father and Mayor) and Femmes de Loi (Women of the Law).

4. In fact, she’s a relative newcomer to acting: Her first gig was a short entitled La Discordance (The Discordance), which she made just four years ago in 2007.

5. Naturally, though, you won’t be surprised to find out that she’s also a model. That’s what she did before breaking into acting.

6. She may be new to the world of Bond, but Berenice no stranger to playing sexy characters. For the French medical drama Équipe Médicale d’Urgence, she shot an incredibly steamy love scene wearing only a red wig. How scandalous!

7. We don’t know much about the new Bond girl’s character, but according to Berenice, her name is Severine, and she’s “glamours and enigmatic.” Well, doesn’t that sound like fun!

8. Apparently she’s married, though we don’t know who the lucky guy is.

9. Berenice made her big screen debut just this year in the French film L'Art de Séduire (The Art of Seduction)…

10. …And Skyfall marks her English-speaking debut.
