new Bond girl Caterina Murino on her role in Casino Royale
Entertainment Weekly has interviewed new Bond girl Caterina Murino on her role in Casino Royale and other hot topics with the actress. It's ironic that you landed the role of horsewoman Solange, since a horse almost caused you to blow your audition. It was very funny because the day before, I had an accident with a horse. I was preparing for an Italian movie, and I fell down. I broke a rib on my right side. I was in the hospital. I was completely under drugs. I went there to the casting, and I couldn't walk. It was unusual; the Bond girl is so full of energy, and I can't walk! But Martin Campbell called me back to go to London and do the same scene with him. And I got the role.
