Australian actress Rose Byrne is poised to become Daniel Craig's first ever James Bond girl. There has been much speculation about the identity of Vespa Lynd, 007's love interest in Casino Royale, Craig's first movie as the world's most famous secret agent. A number of famous females including Sienna Miller, Rachael Stirling and Natasha Henstridge have been linked with the movie, most recently Mission: Impossible II star Thandie Newton. But a spokesperson for 26-year-old Byrne insists "it's fairly certain" the brunette will be cast, according to Moviehole.net.
