Caterina Murino in Zen
Bond girl Caterina Murino (Solange in the 2006 James Bond film Casino Royale) portrays a sexy police assistant with eyes for male beauty.

During three Sundays, starting February 20, Swedish viewers of channel SVT will get to learn detective Aurelio Zen (played by the British actor Rufus Sewell) and his assistant Tania Moretti (played by the talented and beautiful Italian actress Caterina Murino).

Zen is a BBC drama series centred around Rome detective Aurelio Zen, who finds it tough being the only honest cop in town. Plotting politicians, a stressed-out boss and vengeful gangsters don't make it easy.

Caterina Murino says:

“I have to say that I was, and still am, a huge fan of Rufus Sewell and from the first time I met him, he was so nice, so humble and I felt there was some chemistry between him and me. I felt immediately why Tania has a relationship with him. It was so nice to feel it for the first time at the casting.”

“The relationship between Rufus and I on set was always about teasing each other. It was like little kids at school - sometimes the director would have to say ‘stop, both of you! One in the corner and one in the other corner.’ There’s a lot of humour between us. We were always teasing each other and I think that was the best way to build up the relationship, especially with the relationship on screen.”

"It's a perfect mixture of all the things that I would love to see in the cinema – corruption, love, elegance and humour. Everything mixed in perfect doses."

Anders Frejdh, editor of From Sweden With Love, comments:

"Caterina is one of the most beautiful women I have ever met. In this new BBC series, she is as astonishing as in Casino Royale (2006) and makes a wonderful performance as Tania."
