Freida Pinto the next Bond Girl?

Slumdog Millionaire actress Freida Pinto is said to be in discussions to appear as a Bond Girl in the next 007 movie.

According to reports, Pinta has been asked to screen test for the role after coming to the attention of producers when originally casting for Quantum of Solace.

“Freida came to the attention of the Bond team when they were casting Quantum of Solace. She was too young at the time to have a part as a love interest for a secret agent, but she has blossomed into an incredibly stunning young woman and would look perfect on Daniel Craig’s arm” a source told The Sun.

I could be wrong, but Pinto would be the first Indian Bond girl, at least that I can remember.
