Norwegen actress has screentested for Bond 24

Three Norwegians are among a number of Scandinavian actresses being considered for a part in Bond 24, according to reports.

Ingrid Bolsø Berdal (Hercules),  Synnøve Macody Lund (Headhunters) and Birgitte Hjort Sørensen (Borgen) have taken part in screen tests for Bond 24. According to Anne Lindberg, agent of two of the actresses, the film’s producers have auditioned a number of actresses from Denmark, Sweden and Norway over the last year.

The fact that much of the information comes from an agent makes it less reliable as she may be simply attempting to raise the profile of her clients, so until we have any corroborating source this can only be treated as a rumour.
