Bond 24’s New Swedish Bond Girl?

More Bond 24 casting news. A couple of days back Chiwetel Ejiofor was announced as possibly being the villain and producers were looking for two new Bond girls – one English and one Scandinavian.

A Swedish website, Aftonbladet, has reported that two Swedish actresses, Ida Engvoll and Disa Östrand have shot screen tests for the film.

Neither actress is well-known outside of Scandinavia and neither has ever worked on an English language production before.

Ida Engvoll (the Blonde) is the more established of the two, with ten acting credits dating back to 2009, mostly in Scandinavian television; while Disa Östrand (the brunette) has only one feature film and a couple of shorts to her name.

Only one girl can have the role described as “a Scandinavian with a troubled past who will serve as a brief love interest for Bond” and since producers haven’t confirmed anything at this stage, it won’t necessarily be either of them. With filming due to commence laster this year, it won’t be too long before the role is confirmed.

James Bond’s 24th and as yet untitled adventure is due for UK release in October 2015.
