OLGA KURYLENKO plays CAMILLE in QUANTUM OF SOLACE
Ukrainian born, Olga Kurylenko 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, 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 LE SERPENT 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, produced by Luc Besson, in which she plays the role of “Nika Boronina” opposite Timothy Olyphant, Dougray Scott and Ulrich Thomsen.
QUANTUM OF SOLACE continues the high octane adventures of James Bond (DANIEL CRAIG) in CASINO ROYALE.
Betrayed by Vesper, the woman he loved, 007 fights the urge to make his latest mission personal. Pursuing his determination to uncover the truth, Bond and M (JUDI DENCH) interrogate Mr White (JESPER CHRISTENSEN) who reveals the organisation which blackmailed Vesper is far more complex and dangerous than anyone had imagined. Forensic intelligence links an Mi6 traitor to a bank account in Haiti where a case of mistaken identity introduces Bond to the beautiful but feisty Camille (OLGA KURYLENKO), a woman who has her own vendetta. Camille leads Bond straight to Dominic Greene (MATHIEU AMALRIC), a ruthless business man and major force within the mysterious organisation.
On a mission that leads him to Austria, Italy and South America, Bond discovers that Greene, conspiring to take total control of one of the world’s most important natural resources, is forging a deal with the exiled General Medrano (JOAQUIN COSIO). Using his associates in the organisation, and manipulating his powerful contacts within the CIA and the British government, Greene promises to overthrow the existing regime in a Latin American country, giving the General control of the country in exchange for a seemingly barren piece of land.
In a minefield of treachery, murder and deceit, Bond allies with old friends in a battle to uncover the truth. As he gets closer to finding the man responsible for the betrayal of Vesper, 007 must keep one step ahead of the CIA, the terrorists and even M, to unravel Greene’s sinister plan and stop his organisation.
