007.com released two videoblogs today. The first has Berenice Marlohe, the french beauty playing Severine, discussing her role.
The second is action girl, Naomie Harris, who is playing Field Agent Eve. The character is set to see a lot of action and as Harris reiterates this in the video there is a behind the scenes look at the new Bond girl’s weapon training.
The most interesting thing, from our perspective, was a look at Severine on set. She is seen descending an escalator with two heavies behind her. Most of the people in the scene are Asian, and so we predict that she will have heavy involvement in the Shanghai sequences, shot mostly at Pinewood but with some outdoor action captured by the second unit. It also appears that more is going on in this scene that first meets the eye. Observant viewers note that Severine is passing information to a colleague going up the elevator.
