Denise Richards was one and so was Jane Seymour. Bond babes, that is. Quantum of Solace arrives in theaters November 14 with a pair of ladies set to join that exclusive club that had its’ standard set by Ursula Andrews.
In Quantum of Solace, Bond babes are represented in actresses Olga Kurylenko and Gemma Arteton. They are both bad and good. Bond babes have the upstanding reputation of being sexy, tough and much more than eye candy. Some of these women will kill you for crossing them as James Bond has found out on two dozen occasions.
Some Bond babes are better than others. For every Tanya Roberts we could live without in View to a Kill and Denise Richards in Tomorrow Never Dies, there is a Jane Seymour in Live and Let Die and Barbara Bach in The Spy Who Loved Me.
Time will tell how Kurylenko and Arteton perform with audiences, but one thing is for sure. Those two’s careers will never be the same, for better or worse, they are forever Bond babes.
