New SPECTRE Featurette Spotlights the Bond Women
We've got another behind-the-scenes featurette for the new James Bond film Spectre, and it focuses on two of the Bond woman in the story. Those women are Léa Seydoux as Madeleine Swann and Monica Bellucci as Lucia Sciarra. The video features interviews with the two actresses along with director Sam Mendes as they discuss these characters in the movie.
Bellucci describes her character as “an Italian widow with secrets. Her mafioso husband is killed and she risks the same thing happening to her.” As far as Seydoux's character goes, “she’s a doctor. She’s intelligent and a very sensitive and human character.”
Sam Mendes went on to say that, “In Spectre the two women who [James Bond] hooks up with both have great mystery, they both have depths, and for that you need fantastic actresses. [Bellucci] is an incredibly seductive presence in life and in the movie, and I’m thrilled she’s in it. Madeleine needed to be soulful, feisty, and complicated. It probably couldn’t have been a total newcomer. We needed someone with a certain amount of life experience and maturity, and she’s the whole package, really.”
