In addition to the action and spy storyline, the films of the “007” franchise have also become very popular for featuring beautiful women called “Bond girls”.
In “Quantum of Solace”, actress Gemma Arterton (“Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time”), performer for Agent Fields, won the title.
However, the star revealed to The Sun that she regretted playing the character and only accepted the job because she needed the money.
“At the start of my career, I was very poor and needed to work. He needed the money. I am always criticized for playing ‘007: Quantum of Solace’ … But I was only 21 and had to pay my student loan. Which one is? It was a James Bond movie.
She also said that her main regret relates to the way her character was treated as a mere sex object.
“Over the years, I gained more experience and realized that there were a lot of issues with the women in the franchise, it’s sex objects. Watching the movie again, I realize that my character should have refused to identify with him [James Bond]. “
Recalling that the next film in the franchise is ‘007 – No Time to Die’, which marks Daniel Craig’s farewell as an iconic spy.
Recently, actress Lashana Lynch brought up the subject of “ Bond girls ” and assured Tech Radar that the female characters in the feature film would receive due respect.
“I think with the current women’s agency, she represents women as they would like to see themselves, being completely authentic and smug. “007 – No time to die has a lot”. You see the authenticity come down to the characters, the ones that already exist in the franchise and the newcomers like me. These are not damsels in distress or eye drops for men. This film will pay homage to them, because there is an emancipation that I have never seen in the films [da franquia]. I think this is a great example for the younger generations.
