British actress Rosamund Pike has revealed her role as 007's new partner in spying to Empire Online. In an interview conducted at the Empire Awards, she let slip more than a little about her work as Miranda Frost, an MI6 agent intent on giving James Bond a run for his money.
"She's called Miranda Frost, which is a good name," Pike said. "It was going to be Gala Brand, and then we created this new one. She's an MI6 agent, which is a cool thing to be, sent to work alongside Bond by M and not very happy about it. She would rather go it alone and doesn't quite approve of Bond's methods. He seems to be all fire where she's all coolness and reserve. And then she keeps showing different sides all the way through. It's a lot of fun."
Shooting on BOND 20 is currently underway. Along with Pike, Halle Barry joins Pierce Brosnan as a Bond girl as well.
