From A Former Soviet Republic With Love

Bond 22 Girl Announced
While loads of other sites yesterday ran with the story that Gemma Arterton was to play the new Bond girl, we played a more cautious card and suggested that she was only playing one of Bond's bevvy of beauties. Seems we were right because Eon Productions and Sony have now officially announced that Ukrainian actress – and former model – Olga Kurylenko (Hitman) has been cast as the female lead opposite Daniel Craig in Bond 22.

"Olga Kurylenko will play the dangerously alluring Camille, who challenges Bond and helps him come to terms with the emotional consequences of Vesper's betrayal," said Bond producers Michael Wilson and Barbara Broccoli in a joint statement. Vesper Lynd was the Eva Green character in Casino Royale.
