Naomie Harris says that her character, Eve, in the forthcoming 007 movie is a match for James Bond himself.
'Skyfall' - which sees Daniel Craig play the iconic spy for the third time - will be released in cinemas in October.
"My character would like to see herself as a female bond but I don't think anyone's really a match for Bond," Contactmusic quoted her as saying.
Harris refused to give much away about her character but she has been heavily involved in action training and using guns.
"I kickbox and do a lot with guns. I started off terrified by the sound of a gun let alone having any idea how to hold one but now I really enjoy it," she said.
"I started off yoga and running and I've also been doing stunt training and gyrotonics three times a week," she added.
