The first time I met actress Olga Kurylenko was on the set of Quantum of Solace during the filming in Bregenz, Austria, in April and May 2008 where I was working as an extra. Met her again in Stockholm when she was in town to promote the film with Daniel Craig and director Marc Forster.

About Olga Kurylenko:
The Ukrainian born actress moved to Paris when she was 16 to pursue a career in acting which ran alongside a very successful career as a model in Paris, Milan, New York and London.

Her debut lead film performance came in Diane Bertrand’s L’Annulaire (2005), in which Kurylenko played the lead of ‘Iris’. She followed this with a role in Paris je t’aime, the high-profile independent film in which a cooperative of acclaimed international directors told their own short stories about each district of Paris. This premiered in Cannes in the summer of 2006.

Also, in 2006, Kurylenko played “Sofia” in Eric Barbier’s acclaimed thriller The Snake in which she co-starred with French luminaries Yvan Attal, Clovis Cornillac and Pierre Richard.

This soon led to her first English-language role in Xavier Gens’ Hitman (2007), produced by Luc Besson, in which she plays the role of “Nika Boronina” opposite Timothy Olyphant, Dougray Scott and Ulrich Thomsen (Davidov in the 1999 Bond film The World Is Not Enough).
