Kurylenko became a Bond girl early in her acting career, starring in “Quantum of Solace” opposite Daniel Craig in 2008. Hollywood Reporter declared in 2019 that she “found her niche” during that film and has been at odds with some of the industry’s most action-oriented leading female roles. She starred in “Oblivion” with Tom Cruise in 2013 and was a second-place finisher for Gal Gadot for the role of Wonder Woman in the DC Extended Universe. She also starred in “The Courier” from 2019 as an ex-soldier who uses her fighting skills when a delivery goes wrong. She’s been making action movies for 12 years now, and it all started with the workout she did for “Quantum of Solace.”
“I remember coming home, collapsing on my bed and falling asleep. It was a big shock to my body,” Kurylenko told The Hollywood Reporter. “‘Quantum’ was the start of all these physical action movies that I made after, but it was the very first one that I had to train so hard and so much for. It was six months and so intense. The first month, I literally trained every day – from morning to night. I went from doing something to suddenly doing everything that is super-intensive. “She noted that regular training in the gym never gave her endorphins, but martial arts or sparring do. She is clearly in the right line.
Her other films include films such as “To the Wonder” with Ben Affleck, “Vampire Academy”, in which she played Headmistress Kirova, “Sentinelle”, in which she plays a French soldier in a revenge-driven action thriller, “The Death of Stalin” as a Soviet pianist Maria Yudina and spy satire “Johnny English Strikes Again” opposite Rowan Atkinson. She made news in 2020 to catch coronavirus (via CNN), but it is quite certain that her fame from this time will be for other things. You will see this lovely face again.
