Bond Girl Reveals Audition Hell
New Bond girl Caterina Murino almost missed out on the coveted role in upcoming 007 movie Casino Royale after breaking a rib days before her audition. The 32-year-old Italian plays SOLANGE in the film - the wife of bad guy DIMITRIOS - who has a brief fling with the British superspy. But Murino never imagined she'd get the action role after injuring herself in a horseriding accident and hobbling into the Bond casting. She recalls, "I was preparing for an Italian movie and I fell down. I broke a rib on my right side. "I was in hospital, completely under drugs, but I still went to the casting even though I couldn't walk. That was unusual, because the Bond girl is always so full of energy!"
