With the release of what is being labeled the best Bond film yet, actress Naomie Harris picks up where Halle Berry left off and carries on the black bond girl legacy. You may know the British bombshell from her ugly role in “Pirates Of The Caribean,” or this could be your first time being introduced to the beauty, either way, her stellar performance in “Skyfall” is guaranteed to leave you with a long- lasting impression. Move over Zoe, Naomie may be Hollywood’s new “it” girl.

Here’s 5 interesting tidbits about the 36-year-old thespian:

She was raised by a single mother.

She graduated from Pembroke College, Cambridge with an undergraduate degree in Social science and Political science.

“”When I went to Cambridge University, Mum said I wouldn’t fit in and she was right… I hated it. The people there were so different to me. They talked about Eton and skiing and here I was, this black girl from Finsbury Park. I just felt so lonely. There was only one other black person in my year; I was very unhappy and cried every day.” (SOURCE)

She wants to work with Morgan Freeman, Idris Elba and Chiwetel Ejofor (so she told TheGrio):

“Morgan Freeman is an amazing actor who I would like to work with. I had the privilege of working with Idris Elba recently and that was like a dream come true for me, because I think he’s absolutely fantastic actor. Chiwetel Ejofor is another actor that I think is absolutely brilliant and I would love to work with.”

She learned how to shave while filming “Skyfall” (according to EW)

“Our chief hair stylist, her father was actually a barber so he came in and gave me lessons. It’s really hard to learn how to shave. It took me several lessons. I did get to the point where I was able to use a real razor. But I didn’t subject Daniel to that.”

She is Buddhist.
