Samantha Barks wants to be a Bond girl

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.''
