Former Bond girl Famke Janssen
is convinced Daniel Craig
will excel in the role of the British superspy, despite being sad Pierce Brosnan
is no longer playing the part. The 40-year-old made her breakthrough starring as Xenia Onatopp in 1995 movie Goldeneye
and credits the casting with catapulting her into the limelight.
She tells British movie magazine Empire
, "I'm sad that it's not Pierce anymore; I worked with him and really enjoyed him as Bond, but I think Daniel Craig will make a great Bond. It's funny, most people say being a Bond girl hurts your career, but it certainly didn't hurt mine ... It put me on the map and gave me opportunities I never had before, so I don't regret for one second being in that movie."
