>SKYFALL’ S NAOMIE HARRIS

1. SHE’S A NEW KIND OF BOND GIRL.

“Eve is a Bond girl like no other in the sense that she’s an equal to Bond,” the British-born actress, 36, says of the crafty MI6 field agent she plays opposite Daniel Craig in Skyfall. Like her character, “I will use my charm and accent in getting what I want,” says Harris, who broke out in the Pirates of the Caribbean films. “And now that I discovered I have a taste for guns, you don’t want to mess with me!”

2. SHE LOOKS LIKE THAT WITHOUT THE GYM.

“For someone who doesn’t do any exercise, having to do physical work for two months, five days a week of combat training and running, was hell,” Harris says of preparing for the role. “Once I got past the pain, I started to love the benefits. I still hate exercising though.”

3. SHE AND DANIEL CRAIG BONDED.

“Daniel is really hot, but he’s also a nice guy. Whenever I would mess up, he’d say, ‘Actually it was me! I didn’t hit my mark.'”

4. she’s a reformed bad driver.

For the opening action sequence, Harris went to driver’s school. “I can parallel park and do three-point turns,” she says. “Before, I had six car accidents. I’m much better now, I promise!”
