Will Freida Pinto be the next Bond girl?March 13th, 2009 - 2:42 pm ICT by IANS
London, March 13 (IANS) “Slumdog Millionaire” catapulted her to Hollywood and now actress Freida Pinto is in the league of actresses vying to be the new Bond girl.
Freida was invited to a screen test for the next spy adventure, reports thesun.co.uk.
The 24-year-old actress was apparently first spotted by producers during the casting for “Quantum of Solace” - the 22nd Bond film released last year.
“Freida came to the attention of the Bond team when they were casting ‘Quantum of Solace’. She was too young at the time to have a part as a love interest for a secret agent. But she has blossomed into an incredibly stunning young woman and would look perfect on Daniel Craig’s arm,” a source said.
The chances of the actress’ participation in the film seem strong as executive producer of the film Barbara Broccoli is eager to cast her.
“Danny Boyle is favourite to take the helm of the next movie which would increase Freida’s chances of a starring role,” added the source.
If Freida is lucky enough to bag the role of a Bond girl, it would be her next international project after the Woody Allen movie that she has been signed up for.
