As part of the promotion, Harding let slip to the English presses that she would be interested in playing a villainess.
“I need to work on my skills, that’s the priority,” Sarah Harding told The Times. “I’d love to do some action stuff. I’d be a good Brigitte Nielsen kind of baddie. Or maybe the kind of character that Grace Jones played in A View to a Kill. A bad Bond girl. I don’t see myself doing the glamour stuff. I’m kind of edgier.”
The feisty 007 villainess from “A View To A Kill” – Mayday – was played by ’80s music star Grace Jones.
Perhaps Harding is eyeing a role in James Bond 23.
