Bound for San Diego International Comic Con!


Good evening all you Spyfi & Superspies out there! I am leaving for the grand-daddy of all cons tomorrow, where I'll be reporting for Bleeding Cool for the next five days.

In order to not drive myself completely crazy, Bond 365 will take short break and will return next Monday, July 13. I share lots of stories and hopefully, I'll be able to write that I secured a Hot Wheels model car for the upcoming Spectre! If such an item exists - please wish me luck!!

Have a fantastic week! Maybe I'll see you in San Diego and if not, I'll see you back here next Monday!

Thanks!

Casino Royale’s Eva Green…..Day 187 of Bond 365




Eva Green
Born this day in 1980
Vesper Lynd in Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace (video game)

Eva Gaelle Green was born in Paris to a Swedish/French father and an Algerian mother. Her mother, Marlene Jobert, had been an actor before turning to writing books for children. At 17, Green shifted from a French school to an English school in Kent, UK, learning the English language. She studied drama at the Saint Paul Drama School, then a short drama program at Weber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art in London. And, she went to Tisch School of Arts at New York University and studied directing before returning to Paris.

In 2003, Green starred in the Bernardo Bertolucci film, The Dreamers, which garnered several award nominations. It was her first filmic role. She worked with Ridley Scott, Liam Neeson and Orlando Bloom in Kingdom of Heaven (2005) and paired back up with Daniel Craig in The Golden Compass (2007) as Serafina Pekkala.

Most of her body of acting has been on film, however she has worked on two television series: as Morgan in Camelot and as Vanessa Ives in Penny Dreadful. In the latter, Green was cast with another Bond alum, Timothy Dalton.

Green only has 18 acting credits so far; it seems to bare witness that she has been selective in the roles that she accepts. It will be interesting to see how her career develops over time.

Gun and a Radio...Day 186 of Bond 365



It has been a hectic weekend and after banging out two coverage articles on Anime Expo earlier this evening, I'm just about done for the evening. Unfortunately I don't have an event from Bond history for today's Bond 365. Instead, I'm putting up a fun scene from Skyfall, which I quite like for the banter between Q and James Bond. A good way to end the weekend - I hope you agree!
