About Caterina Murino:
Italian actress and model Caterina Murino was born in Cagliari, Sardinia in 1977.

Caterina's first film role was in 2002's Nowhere directed by Luis Sepúlveda. She then appeared in three television series before landing one of the Bond girl roles in the 2002 James Bond film.

Other notable film credits include Pride & Prejudice (2005) with Dame Judi Dench (M in seven Bond films), Fracture (2007) with Anthony Hopkins, Surrogates (2009) with Bruce Willis, and the James Bond spoof Johnny English Reborn (2011) with Rowan Atkinson (Nigel Small-Fawcett in the 1983 Bond film Never Say Never Again). In 2012, she co-starred in Wrath of the Titans with Liam Neeson and in Jack Reacher with Tom Cruise. She was reunited with Pierce Brosnan in both The World's End (2013) and A Long Way Down (2014).

In 2011, Pike co-starred in the two-part mini-series Women in Love opposite Rory Kinnear (Bill Tanner in three James Bond films - Quantum of Solace, Skyfall and this year's SPECTRE).

Amongst Rosamund Pike's many nominations and awards as an actress are:

• Winner of Best Newcomer at the Empire Awards 2003 for her role in Die Another Day
• Nominated for Best Actress at the Golden Globe Awards 2015 for Gone Girl

Rosamund Pike is also a popular voice-over artist. In 2012, she read the audiobook for Ian Fleming's tenth 007 novel, The Spy Who Loved Me.

Pike also continues to return to her roots on the London theater scene despite considerable success on the silver screen throughout her acting career.
