Solange in CASINO ROYALE 2006

Caterina Murino played Solange in Casino Royale (2006), the beautiful but discontented wife of Dimitrios, one of Le Chiffre’s associates.

Born in Sardinia, Murino is known to French audiences for her leading roles in Patrice Leconte’s comedy Les Bronzés 3: amis pour la vie, the crime caper L’Amour aux Trousses directed by Philippe de Chauveron and the comedy L’Enqûete Corse, co-starring Jean Reno and directed by Alain Berbérian.

Caterina began her acting career in commercials and studied at the acclaimed School of Cinema and Theatre, instructed by acclaimed actress Francesca de Sapio. She made her stage debut in a production of Agatha Christie’s “And Then There Were None” and appeared in several other Italian language plays.

Her cinema debut, in 2001, was the international production of Nowhere by Chilean writer Luis Sepúlveda and starring Harvey Keitel.

European television credits include Des Jours et Des Nuits directed by Thierry Chabert, Orgoglio directed by Giorgio Serafini and In Der Mitte Deines Lebens directed by Bernd Fischerauer. In 2005, she starred in the Spanish/Argentinean television drama Vientos de Agua directed by Juan José Campanella, and the Italian film Eleonora D’Arborea for director Claver Salizzato.

I met the gorgeous Italian actress during an event organised by my friends from Club James Bond France in Paris in december 2007. (The club's 10-year anniversary celebrations.)

Caterina was absolutely wonderful and big-hearted, she happily shared her memories from working in the Bahamas for CASINO ROYALE the year before.
