Rosamund Pike has revealed she had an absolute ball filming Johnny English Reborn, mainly due to Rowan Atkinson cracking her up.
The star, who was once a Bond girl, is to appear in the Johnny English sequel alongside Atkinson, who will continue in his role as Sir Johnny English, a British secret agent.
Anderson is set to play his MI7 partner, Pamela Head.
“It was wonderful – Rowan Atkinson is a genius. I’ve been watching him since I was a child and find him so funny,” she said.
“There were scenes where the whole crew was in hysterics. We started shooting at seven in the morning and were still laughing at it by six in the night. He’s astonishing to work with, really astonishing. I had a great time.”
Since starring in Bond, Rosamund has filmed Barney’s Version, which is in cinemas now, and refused to tell us any more about her character.
“I can’t tell you about the plot. It’s a continuation of the character from the last film,” she said.
“The whole world has been re-imagined, it’s a rethinking of the British secret service. They have re-imagined how the British Secret Service works in a very funny way, in a way that would appal an agent like James Bond or Johnny English.”
The 32-year-old actress added: “I don’t play an agent – I play a new element, ingredient, in this new-fangled MI7.”
Johnny English Reborn will be out here in October.
