Madeline Smith on Modern Bond

The lovely Madeline Smith has been talking to The Times about the James Bond franchise in the 21st Century. Amidst all manner of calls for the films and their depiction of women to be updated in light of recent news stories and campaigns, Madeline took a different view.

Madeline of course appeared opposite the late Sir Roger Moore in the 1973 Bond picture, Live and Let Die, playing Italian agent Miss Caruso. In a long career on stage and screen, Madeline appeared in several Hammer Horror productions, worked many times with the legendary Frankie Howerd and even popped up in Carry On Matron in a cameo as a new mother at Finisham Maternity Hospital.

Madeline spoke to the paper about some aspects of her own career and clearly yearns for more innocent, fun times in the best of British cinema. "The romance and the fun seems to have gone out of everything, generally" she said and I can't help agree with that statement to begin with.

So what do you think? Do you agree with Maddie? You can read the article in full here.
