Naomie Harris and John Logan in the media

Actress Naomie Harris and screenwriter John Logan have recently spoken to the press about their involvement in Skyfall. When Harris was asked by Total Film whether she was a goodie or baddie, she replied:

“My character would like to see herself as a female Bond but I don’t think anyone’s really a match for Bond.”

That sounds a little too much like Jinx from Die Another Day. She also told them what she had said in the November press conference, namely that she was keeping fit through yoga and enjoying using firearms.

Meanwhile John Logan was interviewed by the BBC, in which he says that he hasn’t done an interview in the last year that doesn’t mention Bond, going on to say:

“There’s always tweaking to be done… I’ve been with Skyfall for over a year now. It’s been the most fun experience I’ve ever had on a movie. It’s like being part of a theatre company.

“I grew up on Bond and working with Sam [Mendes] is a dream because we’re both theatre animals. We both speak the same language about story and character.”
