Todayís your last day of shooting. Itís nearly six months youíve
been working on this picture. How do you feel after that length of
reaction and insert shots?
read the script and I agree. It seems that sheís a very
individualistic, gutsy sort of female.
itís kept you really fit?
hear that Martin Campbell is quite a taskmaster as a director. He
wants what he wants and heís going to get it.
Thereís a sequence at the railway when he had Pierce running up and
down and you had to do push ups so you were both out of breath.
do you feel about being linked with the history of the Bond Girls,
all those actresses in the 16 earlier films, now you have that place
Is that how you
there one part you particularly enjoyed, one scene or sequence, one
thing about making this film youíll always remember?
film is unique in so much as the cast are perhaps more well-known,
and are a better ensemble of actors.
there anything you found challenging about the part?
pretty nerve wracking to do it in any language!
Whatís it been like
working with Pierce?
Are there many love scenes in GoldenEye?
Obviously, Bond films donít do that sort of thing as a rule
although, seeing some of the footage with Famke Janssen, one gets
the impression this film has gone a bit further.
you at Arecibo for the
satellite dish sequence?
Did you have to do
any stunts or hairy action sequences?
Obviously you hope
GoldenEye will be well received. How are you going to cope
with all the press attention because itís going to go bananas when
the film is released. Everybody is going to want to talk to the
James Bond Girl.
A lot of people think that after a film like this you will be able to do the things you want, but you never know how the film is going to come out and you never know what people are going to think about the way you act, your character or whatever you have done with Natalya. I think Iím just going to enjoy everything. Iím going to relax and try to do that. Iím happy. Iíve been through a lot of things since I was 17 in Sweden. I started with a film when I was 17 and then I have been recording, so Iím quite used to a moment when you suddenly get so much attention and you donít know why. The most important thing is not to start to believe youíre special, to try to stay cool and know this is just for two months and enjoy it. Iím going to have fun. Itís going to be wonderful to go to Japan and places I would never visit otherwise. You should never take things for granted, you should always be grateful. I think itís going to be fantastic, but also realise you shouldnít think that this is going to make it easier to do everything you want to do in the movie business or not.
