James Bond Films

Naomie Harris is the first black actress to play Moneypenny in the James Bond films. In the James Bond films Skyfall and Spectre she plays ‘Eve Moneypenny,’ and Moneypenny doesn’t usually have a first name in the Bond films. The erosion of Bond’s original character and purpose commenced with the replacement of M by a woman played by Judi Dench which never worked for me, although, according to the article below, she has been killed off now. Come on, M never gets killed! This is an act of cultural sabotage. Such changes are manifestations of blatant mind-programming exercises aimed at younger audiences who have not been brought up on earlier films which convey much lighter, more playful and innocent values and leave one feeling positive and optimistic afterwards.

This plot runs deeper than liberal political correctness. It is a result of social engineering by the criminal cabal that controls the wealth and prominent institutions and industries in the West, including Hollywood. The cultural background, the ethics, the wisdom, the personalities, the sweetness and sensitivity, romance and sensuality, fun and frolics have all been replaced with a more aggressive and sterile version that the Elite wants people to watch in order to influence their thoughts and behaviour and make them feel that they live in a harder, more cruel world in which fear has a prominent place.

I have not watched a James Bond film since Daniel Craig took over the role of James Bond in 2005. The reason being that he does not look the part. He is, in my view, an imposter with his blond hair and muscular build. And, from a couple of clips that I’ve seen, he endures utterly degrading torture which would never have been inflicted on the real Bond because he is a hero who always retains his dignity. In this way, his reputation and the power and potential that he represents has been undermined. James Bond films have now been thrown into the melting pot with the other violent blockbuster mush that Hollywood produced.

Hollywood (a predominantly Jewish clan) has been destroying a number of classic films with violent, homogenised remakes. In the case of James Bond, these scoundrels have been systematically destroying a much-loved hero from the time when Britain had what it took to produce quality, inspiring and uplifting films that reflected confidence and shared a positive message, namely the promise of individual fulfilment. SPECTRE (2015) might just as well have been promoted by this spoof montage in which the British secret agent turns to the bottle during a time of weakness and self-doubt.

The Onion Reviews ‘Spectre’
No-one objected to Moneypenny being black because public were not told, says Naomie Harris

"People didn’t have a chance to say, ‘Oh no, we don’t want a black Moneypenny’" James Bond actress Naomie Harris says

Naomie Harris as Miss Moneypenny in SPECTRE

The public did not object to the new Miss Moneypenny being black because they were not told until the film was already out, the actress Naomie Harris has suggested.

Harris, the first black actress to play the James Bond character, said she had been "very lucky" her casting had been kept under wraps until Skyfall was in cinemas.

“I think I was very lucky that it was never revealed I was Moneypenny until the movie was already out," she told Town & Country magazine. "People didn’t have a chance to say, ‘Oh no, we don’t want a black Moneypenny,’ because they didn’t know she was coming.

"And when they saw the film, they thought, hopefully, ‘OK, we can live with her.’ So there were no objections, which I’m really happy about.”

Harris has also spoken out the nuances of her character's relationship with 007 in the latest Bond outing, SPECTRE.

She said: “I feel as though they have a much stronger and more mutually respectful relationship. The great thing about Moneypenny is that she’s not willing to cross that line, because for her the job is more important than the man. There’s something really powerful about that decision.”

Ms Harris also refused to consider nude scenes as part of her role in the latest installment in the Bond series. “I don’t feel it’s part of my job, I don’t like this sexualisation and objectification. It’s not what I’m about at all,” she said.

“I have always felt that kind of mission, I was never going to play stereotyped roles, and I was always going to show women, and particularly black women, in a positive light…I’m a feminist, and it’s very important to me to reflect that.

“Sam talked to me about his vision for Moneypenny and how he wanted her to be completely modernised, really different, a woman who women in the audience could identify with and admire.
And though Harris lamented the death of Dame Judi Dench's incarnation of 'M' - MI6's dour overseer, she welcomed Ralph Fiennes first full-length debut in the role.

“Of course, Ralph is an amazing actor, but I do miss Judi. I think she was the beating heart of the Bond movies," said Harris, adding: "There was something so tough but also warm about her, and just having a female energy is different.”
