Skyfall star Naomie Harris claims the latest James Bond film made Brits feel proud.
The actress, who was revealed to be the new Miss Moneypenny in Sam Mendes’ box office smash, said part of the reason the film was such a big hit was because Brits felt so patriotic after the London 2012 Olympic Games.
She said: ‘It’s part of the very pro-British feeling that happened as a result of the Olympics and Paralympics, and I think that wave of enthusiasm for Britain actually followed over.
‘Also, because it’s the 50th anniversary, and because Skyfall is so based in Britain this time rather than glamorous far-flung parts of the world, it feels even more British and gave people another excuse to wave the British flag and feel proud.’
The star was talking at the launch of a specially commissioned East Coast train, named Skyfall, that was decorated with artwork from the film.
Harris was joined by writers Neal Purvis and Robert Wade at the event at at London’s King’s Cross station.
The actress added: ‘I never thought that I would see my face on the side of a train.
‘It’s a once in a lifetime experience, and it’s beautiful what they have done.’
Skyfall will be released on Blu-ray and DVD on Monday, February 18.
