Actress Naomie Harris, who plays field agent Eve in upcoming James Bond movie "Skyfall", initially thought that she is not right for the part.

"To be honest, I don't think I'd be very good at such a role. What drew me to this was the opportunity to play a new kind of Bond Girl," mirror.co.uk quoted Harris, 35, as saying.
"In 2012, there's a need to have female characters who are equal to that. Otherwise it would be totally imbalanced and no one would care about the relationships Bond has. I love the way it's developed in that way. Those Bond Girls in the sixties and seventies might have been good back then, but they wouldn't be seen as very PC now," she added.
