‘Skyfall’: Bond Girls Through the Years (GALLERY)

at 7:00 am | By

Skyfall marks the latest installment in the James Bond film series — and this one certainly doesn’t skim on the eye candy.

The movie, starring Daniel Craig as 007, introduces two new Bond girls to the mix: French actress Bérénice Marlohe and British babe Naomie Harris. Like many of series’ past sultry vixens, these ladies are bound to get entangled in the famous spy’s business (and perhaps his sheets as well).

So what’s the deal with these new characters — and how do they fit into the Bond universe?

In Skyfall, Marlohe, 33, plays Severine, the doomed heroine caught between a man who relentlessly controls her (Javier Bardem) and another who promises freedom (Craig).

Meanwhile, Harris steps into the role of Eve Moneypenny, the assistant to Judi Dench‘s M at the British Secret Service. The 36-year-old is the fifth actress to take on the famous part in the franchise.

Though there may have only a handful of Moneypennys, over 40 Bond girls have aided (and sometimes foiled) the famous spy over the film series’ 23 movies.

From Halle Berry to original Bond babe Ursula Andress to the only Mrs. 007 Diana Rigg, launch the gallery above to see how Bond girls have evolved over time.
