Bond Girls: Kurylenko, Olga–Quantum of Solace

Olga Kurylenko stars opposite Daniel Craig in QUANTUM OF SOLACE as Camille, a woman focused on avenging the murder of her family.

Kurylenko’s early career was established in France, giving her debut lead performance as Iris in Diane Bertrand’s L¬íANNULAIRE.

This was followed by a role starring alongside Elijah Wood in Paris JE T’AIME, an independent film in which a cooperative of acclaimed international directors told their stories of Paris. In 2006, Kurylenko played Sofia in Eric Barbier¬ís acclaimed thriller, LE SERPENT, co-starring with French luminaries Yvan Attal, Clovis Cornillac and Pierre Richard.

Kurylenko took her first English-speaking role last year in the film adaptation of the graphic novel, HITMAN. Directed by Xavier Gens and produced by Luc Besson, Kurylenko gives a powerful performance as Nika Boronina opposite Timothy Olyphant, Dougray Scott and Ulrich Thomsen.

Kurylenko was seen in the role of Mina Harud in John Beck Hofmann’s TYRANNY.

In 2009, she starred alongside Mark Wahlberg in John Moore’s MAX PAYNE, and in the leading role of the French-produced drama, KIROT.
