Hunger magazine - One from the archives : Naomie Harris


































































xxxxxxxxxxxx
When Danny Boyle cast Naomie Harris as Selena in British horror film 28 Days Later, she was relatively unknown – a status that couldn’t be said now. Since her 2002 appearance as the cropped-haired zombie fighter, Harris hasn’t had more than two consecutive days off. And the growing profile of the 36-year- old, who has been acting since she was nine, is set to reach further heights at the end of this month, when she will appear alongside Daniel Craig in Skyfall, the latest film in the James Bond franchise.
We caught up with Londoner Harris at her shoot for The Hunger, where we found her showing off her defined abs in a Prada ensemble.

DID YOU SEE THE QUEEN’S PERFORMANCE IN THE BOND SPOOF FOR THE OPENING CEREMONY OF LONDON 2012?

I did, yes – it was brilliant! They did such a great job and the Queen was amazing. She is a great actress, she only needed one take, I heard. Also, it was such a surprise – I didn’t know anything about it.

I’M SURPRISED YOU HADN’T HEARD, BEING THAT THE TWO MEN INVOLVED – DANIEL CRAIG AND DANNY BOYLE – ARE PAST COLLEAGUES OF YOURS.

Did Danny direct it? I knew he directed the opening ceremony, but I didn’t know he did that. It was brilliant.

THE QUEEN ALWAYS CARRIES A LAUNER HANDBAG CONTAINING A MIRROR, LIPSTICK, A CRISPLY FOLDED £5 NOTE, READING GLASSES, MINT LOZENGES AND A FOUNTAIN PEN. WHAT DO YOU CARRY IN YOUR BAG?

Oh my gosh, so much! I couldn’t even begin to tell you what’s in my bag, and if you saw the size of my bag, you wouldn’t want me to because I would bore you – it’s massive. I just carry my life in it, especially if I’m going to shoots. I’m Miss Cautious, so even if the sun’s out I’ll carry an umbrella because I know London. I’ve always got an extra pair of socks or extra pair of gloves. I just carry everything in my bag.

DO YOU REMEMBER HOW YOU FELT WHEN YOU WERE TOLD YOU HAD THE PART IN SKYFALL?

I remember clearly; I was in Washington promoting another film. I was told just before I went in to announce the screening of this other film that I was doing it, and I was told that I couldn’t tell anybody. I was so over the moon that I wanted to scream and shout and tell everybody but I could only tell my friends and close family. There was no one around that I could share it with so I broke the agreement a bit and told the director and one of the producers that I was with because I just couldn’t keep it to myself.

WHO WAS THE FIRST PERSON THAT YOU TOLD AFTER THAT?

I rang home and I told my mum. It’s always your mum that you tell first.

TELL US ABOUT EVE, THE CHARACTER YOU PLAY IN SKYFALL.

Eve is a field agent. She’s very capable, she’s very ambitious and when you see her at the start of the movie her aim really is to be a female version of Bond.

Damian Lewis looks dapper in smart attire as he shoots night scenes for upcoming movie Our Kind Of Traitor

Suited and booted! Damian Lewis looks dapper in smart attire as he shoots night scenes for upcoming movie Our Kind Of Traitor

He recently filmed a scene looking like the spitting image of Michael Caine. 
But Damian Lewis managed to blend in with the rest of the crowd as he shot his latest scenes for upcoming movie Our Kind of Traitor while wearing a dark suit. 
The 43-year-old actor looked dapper as he dressed smartly in a black suit and striped tie as he filmed in character as Hector, a member of British intelligence.

Wearing a pair of thick-rimmed spectacles, Damian looked very focused as he shot his latest part in the motion picture at Arsenal Football Club's Emirates Stadium in North London.
    While his character is supposed to be fairly inconspicuous, Damian certainly wasn't as his night-time shoot attracted plenty of onlookers. 
    The hype surrounding the movie, which is doesn’t have a current release date, is building as more and more celebrity names are announced as being involved in the release.

    Damian will join Ewan McGregor and Naomie Harris in the big-screen adaptation of the John le Carre novel, which tells the story of a Russian money launderer who seeks to defect to the UK after a tragic turn of events. 
    Ralph Fiennes was originally cast in the hotly-anticipated thriller, but he dropped out and was replaced by The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo actor Stellan SkarsgÄrd.
    Damian shot part of the movie in London just last month, and in those scenes he had to wear a beige Aquascutum overcoat and thick-rimmed glasses which left him baring a striking resemblance to Michael's character Harry Palmer from hit 1960s movie The Ipcress File.

    Damian also wore a plaid scarf and smart trousers as he filmed the scenes on the banks of the river Thames in London.
    His trademark red locks were swept to one side and he prowled along the shore taking a phone call for most of the scene.
    Shooting for the movie only started in March and it's unknown how long the motion picture will take to film.
