Freida Pinto could become the new Bond girl! She was reportedly invited to do a screen test for the next installment of the franchise.
Freida first caught the eye of the producers while they were shooting Quantum of Solace, and now that Slumdog has done so well, she’s become one of the most sought-after actresses in the biz.
To sweeten the deal, we hear Danny Boyle will be directing he next Bond movie, which would seriously help her chances. Executive producer Barbara Broccoli apparently wants Freida over any other actresses for the role.
A source close to the set says, “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. “Danny Boyle is the favorite to take the helm of the next movie, which would increase Freida’s chances of a starring role.”
We could definitely see Freida playing a Bond girl. The women cast are always beautiful, but very strong and smart, which are two characteristics we see in Freida. Plus we just want to see more of her after her amazing performance in Slumdog!
