Naomi Harris - 'Moneypenny Needs To Redeem Herself!'
EXCLUSIVE! The Skyfall star on how she'd like her Bond character to develop…
To celebrate the release this week of Skyfall on DVD and Blu-ray, MTV News took a ride on the inaugural outing of the Skyfall Express with none other than Miss Moneypenny herself, Naomi Harris.
Leaving London's Kings Cross from the special Platform 007, the train took in some of the finest British countryside as it made its way to Edinburgh, while onboard cocktails were shaken, not stirred.
Talking about how she first discovered she'd won the highly coveted role of Eve Moneypenny in Skyfall, Naomi said:
"I was in Washington filming when I got the call from my agent, and I was just screaming in the middle of the street going 'No way! No way!'
"I was told to keep it a secret and that was very difficult for me - because I wanted to tell absolutely everybody!
While no details about the next Bond movie have yet to be officially confirmed, Naomi revealed she'd love to return alongside 007 given half a chance, and that she'd like to see Moneypenny's character grow.
"I would like to see Moneypenny's character develop in the next Bond film with her redeeming herself.
"Everyone keeps talking about how she's a bad shot and a bad driver and I think it's unfair.
"I think she's very accomplished and I want her to be back in the field showing what she can do!"
