Samantha Barks wants to be a Bond girl

Jan 21 2013, 10:06am CST | by

Samantha Barks would love to be a Bond girl.

The 'Les Miserables' actress received critical acclaim for her debut film role as Eponine in the musical drama, but is now hoping to follow in the footsteps of beauties such as Halle Berry, Gemma Arterton and Eva Green by playing a sexy, suave counterpart to 007 actor Daniel Craig.

Speaking to BANG Showbiz at the London Critics Circle Film Awards at the May Fair Hotel on Sunday (20.01.13), she said: ''I've always wanted to play a very kick-ass character at some stage, like a Bond girl. That would be very fun. That's always been a goal in my mind.''

The 22-year-old beauty's success in 'Les Mis' has led to more film offers flooding in, but she played coy about where we might see her next.

She said: ''I do have things lined up. Nothing's been 100 per cent confirmed, so I can't actually talk about them but I'm very excited.''

Speaking of her whirlwind success from reality TV contestant to becoming a Hollywood star, she added: ''It's been a crazy few years. I did [Andrew Lloyd Weber reality show 'Any Dream Will Do'] when I was 17, so to go from there to here now... I did a national tour, then I went into the West End, then to go into a film - it's been mad. It's been so much fun. I feel very lucky to be able to explore so many different areas.''

White Bird In A Blizzard In A Trailer

Aug 22 2014 4:43am CDT | Source: Empire Online

Shailene Woodley loses Eva GreenLately we've got rather used to seeing Eva Green in femme fatale mode, so it's jarring to find her in Gregg Araki's White Bird In A Blizzard playing the perfect homemaker. Except, of course, that's not what she is at all, and there are secrets and mysteries simmering beneath that domestic surface. See if you can guess at them in the latest trailer.As you'll just have seen, Shailene Woodley stars as Kat Connors, ...

SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR Review

Aug 21 2014 2:48pm CDT | Source: Collider

In 2005, Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller's Sin City was an interesting novelty.  The directors were able to transfer Miller's visually distinct comics to the screen through the heavy use of CGI.  Not adapt; transfer.  The comic was used as a storyboard, and the directors filled in the gaps by casting a bunch of recognizable actors to play the roles.  For people who argue that adaptations should never stray fr ...

Sin City: A Dame To Kill For

Aug 21 2014 2:05pm CDT | Source: Cinema Blend

Like Sin City, its sequel is a tangle of interweaving plots that reject chronological order. In this snarl there's the story of a hotheaded young gambler (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), a revenge-fueled stripper (Jessica Alba), and Ava the titular femme fatale (Eva Green) who lures an old flame (Jos ...

Now the film is poised for release this fall, and the first full trailer has arrived, and it paints a much more conventional picture.

Why Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is the film you should watch this week - video

Aug 21 2014 2:30am CDT | Source: the guardian

The best role in Sin City: A Dame for Kill For goes not to Josh Brolin, nor Eva Green, but the corrupt city itself. Henry Barnes recommends diving into the dirt with the flawed heroes and back-stabbing broads of Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez's sequel. Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is out in the UK tomorrow Continue reading ...
