Sophie Monk reveals she ‘was almost a Bond girl’ in Skyfall after making the final four candidates

She’s the TV host, actress and singer who rose to fame as a member of the Australian pop group Bardot in the early 2000s.

And Sophie Monk has revealed she nearly added Bond girl to her impressive résumé nearly a decade ago.

The Love Island presenter, 41, made the surprising admission on Triple M Sydney’s Moonman in the Morning on Tuesday.

During a light chat about Chinese spies, host Lawrence Mooney joked that that blonde bombshell ‘could definitely be a Bond girl’.

‘Oh actually, [Bond producers] were in talks with me [about a role] but someone else got it,’ Sophie revealed.

When asked which movie she would have been in, Sophie guessed that the talks took place ‘about ten years ago’.

That would have meant the film was likely Skyfall, which was released in 2012.

However Monk incredibly could not remember which James Bond actor she would have played opposite when pressed as to whether it would have been Pierce Brosnan or Daniel Craig.

‘I can’t remember. I just remember going, you know, I was down to the final four or something.’ 

‘Obviously my acting probably let me down,’ she joked. 

French actress Bérénice Marlohe ultimately landed the role of Bond girl Sévérine in the blockbuster.

Sophie wore dark makeup on her striking eyes, and polished off her pout with a pretty pink lip gloss.

‘Way to make an impact, girlfriend!’ Sophie said as she clicked her fingers in the opening scenes, while referring to one of the sizzling new islanders.
