Unlike modern franchises like Twilight or the horror series Saw, James Bond franchise has given beautiful, mysterious, seductive and super sexy spies – the Bond Girls. Then in strides the wild and wilful Bond girl who, though she is a sex object can also be an icy spy, a pilot or even a powerful villain.
But the real question is: when the next movie comes out, who should be cast as the next Bond girl? OR What makes the ideal Bond Girl?
To me Bond Girl means “adventure, power, and a sexuality”, where would James Bond be without his girls – The most common country of origin for the Bond Girls is the USA.
Nearly half of all Bond Girls are brunette bombshells - 4 of the 5 major Bond Girls during Daniel Craig’s stint as 007 are brunettes, expect the trend to continue.

Bond Girl can not be taller than James Bond - In the history of the Bond franchise, no Bond Girl has ever been taller than James Bond. Daniel Craig is 5’10” (1.78m) in height barefoot, so the average Bond Girl height – 5-feet, 7-inches.

The average age of a Bond Girl is 29 - Oldest among all Bond girls was – 39 Honor Blackman Goldfinger, Average: 29 – Olga Kurylenko Quantum of Solace , Youngest: 21 – Daniela Bianchi From Russia with Love
