Naomie Harris has told Newsbeat about her "top secret" audition for the next James Bond film.

London-born actress Harris, who starred in two of the Pirates of the Caribbean films, said she had to read scenes from previous Bond flick Quantum of Solace.

She explained that she hadn't been told what role she was up for but said she'd love to play a Bond girl.

The 23rd Bond film is to be directed by Sam Mendes and will start production later this year.

"All I can say is I've met the Bond team, I've met Sam Mendes, they're all wonderful. I've auditioned for Bond," she said.

'Biggest fan'

"My audition was really great actually because it's so top secret, the whole Bond thing. I hadn't realised how top secret it was.

"I've auditioned for a lot of things before but never for something where you can't see the script, it's that secret. I auditioned with a scene from Quantum of Solace.

Naomie also revealed she didn't even know what part in the new movie she was auditioning for.

"You don't know what role you're going up for either, so everybody gets given a scene from a previous Bond movie," she said.

"I don't know whether it's true or not that I'm going to be an intelligent Bond girl. I don't know at all but I'd like it!

"I've been the biggest fan of Bond for the longest time. I love the Bond movies. My whole family loves it and they'd be so proud of me," she added.
