MI6 reports that a casting search is currently underway for the next "Bond Girl" for James Bond 24. The producers are reportedly searching for a Scandinavian actress for the role of the secondary female lead and a British actress for the lead Bond Girl.
Norwegian actress Ingrid Bolso Berdal (34) is among the actors who have screen-tested for the role. She'll be featured in the upcoming Hercules movie starring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. She also appeared in Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters.
Other contenders for the role include Danish actress Birgitte Hjort Sorensen, 32; Swedish actresses Disa Östrand, 27, and Ida Engvoll, 28; and Norwegian actress Synnove Macody Lund, 38.
Eight actresses have reportedly been tested for a Scandinavian character "with a troubled past who will serve as a brief love interest for Bond." The lead Bond Girl role will also be a British character, per the report.
The next installment for the franchise is slated to start filming in October. Sam Mendes (Skyfall) will return to direct. The sequel is set to open on November 6, 2015.
