From Borgen to Bond?

Borgen star Birgitte Hjort Sorensen has auditioned for the role of a Bond girl in the next James Bond movie. This makes me very happy; always good to see this splendid Scandinavian actress!

Looking suitably Bond Girl-esque in the photo above too! It seems there is life after Borgen; Pilou Asbaek hosted last weekend's Eurovision!


  1. Good news indeed. I just hope it's a role worthy of her abilities and not a bit of eye candy hanging on Bond's shoulder. After Borgen, anything less than a character of that calibre will seem like a massive let-down.

    1. I know what you mean; I'm sort of 60% chuffed, 40% cautious. If they can produce something genuinely meaningful like Vesper Lynd or M even, then all well and good, but more often than not they just provide the eye candy and that's a shame - look at Gemma Arterton. Such a waste :( Plus Bond's always been something of a graveyard for actresses too and she's worth far more than that.
