I'm not the biggest fan of her trilogy or, frankly, Rey, but Daisy Ridley?
I see it.
She looks great in a variety of outfits (dresses, office attire, boots, heels, sneakers), is fit for fight choreography, gorgeous, can play firm along with flirty, and an overall sexy accent.
Malene Wadel is 23 .... I think, and her experience is from theatre and "State of happiness", a good TV-series about the start of the Norwegian oil industry and how it changed the town of Stavanger. I think the Bond series should launch international careers, both for Bond girls and villans.
Sophie Turner. "Sansa Stark" is 26 years old now, a great age for Bond girls.
I wish more members would post in this thread. It's important and rewarding work!

I won’t let you down @Number24
Thank you for your efforts, CHB! Actresses who are national stars, but largely unknown internationally is exactly the type we need for Bond girls (and Bond villans).
Since there is relatively little activity in the forum this weekend I have decided to take responsibility and post. I have posted about the Australian actress Samara Weaving before, but a good thing is worth repeating. 😀
Are there other Australian Bond girl actresses than Brosnan's late wife Cassandra Harries? i'm pretty sure there are none who played an Australian.
It turns out one of the Angels of Death in OHMSS was Australian, but it's not a large role. I think this all shows the Australians are under-represented in the Bond girl department.
I think there is a good chance Bond26 will be partly set in Australia, Canada, US, so can imagine the actress will be one of these nationalities.
I'm not so sure. Those countries are so ofte used in TV and movies it's hard to make them look exotic.
But for novelty in the franchise and to go somewhere they haven't been before, I could see them going there.
Canada and Australia would be a novelty in the franchise.
As an Australian, I can pitch many locations that would nicely serve for the purposes of:
If it's Canadian, I hope the character's name will be Vivienne Michel, aside from Gala Brand, she's the Bond Girl that I would also liked to see.
I think given by the time the next film is released it will be about 35 years since Bond was in the US, that too will feel fresh and new for the franchise, especially to younger viewers.
He was (in the movie) in Miami in CR.
Not sure that really counts. I think you know where I'm coming from.
I'm not sure that counts either.
HoYeon Jung is a breakout star in the South Korean TV series "Squid Game". I haven't seen it, but it's a huge international success with young people. Jung herself is 28. In my opinion she's the type of actress the Bond movies should cast.
I recently watched Kenneth Branagh's "Death on the Nile". I'll write a review later, but I think Emma Mackey delivered the standout performance. Mackey is a 26 year old French-British actress known for the TV-series "Sex eductation" and the movies "Emily" as Emily Brontë and the French "Eiffel". A rising star in my opinion!
I like it when the actresses cast as Bond girls are relative unknowns or at least unknown to the English-speaking audience. Here's one example:
Ni Ni is a 34 year old Chinese actress. A huge star in the enormous home market, but unknown here.
I hope more members will post here, but in the meantime I have to do the work! 🙂
Thomasin Mackenzie is a 22 year old actress from NZ who many knows from "Leave no trace", "Last night in Soho" and "Jojo Rabbit". She's a very talented actress who isn't a huge star yet. She's also looks stunning, making her a great candidate to be a Bond girl in Bond 26:
Good choice. There are many reasons I loved loved Last Night in Soho, she was one of them you can guess one of the others..😍
I'm currently enjoying the excellent Inspector Ricciardi on TV. As well as its lead Lino Guanciale being very brooding and capturing more than an essence of the literary James Bond, he finds himself with two extremely beautiful admirers; Maria Vera Ratti😍 and Serena Iansiti😍
I like the name Claire de Lune as a Bond girl name. "Clair de Lune" means "Moonlight" in French, but it's also a classic music piece by Debusy.
James Bond has a special place in the world, and if they want EON can use talent who are the best in their country and region. Did you know Hollywood is only the third biggest film industry in terms of number of productions? India and Nigeria makes more movies. After a quick search on the net I found two Nigerian movie stars who has the look to be a Bond girl:
Sharon Ooja Egwurube
I just saw Mark Kermode's review of the movie "Reality", based so directly on real events every line is taken verbatim from a police questioning. Sydney Sweeney plays the lead character and Kermode calls her performance "fantastic" and "absolutely terrific". Sweeney is American and 25 years old. She has earlier been great in TV shows like "Euphoria", "White lotus"and "Handmaidens's tale". Here's the trailer for "Reality": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=plIUJ-LF7JU
I think she is and ideal Bond girl because of her good acting and because she looks amazing. In the last few decades American actresses haven't done well in Bond movies, but she can buck this trend. Something is severely wrong if she isn't a future movie star:
Maybe more of a henchwoman since she's "The Worst person in the world", but I'd like to re-suggest Renate Reinsve. She won the Best Actress Award in Cannes, so she can act:
