The iconic dancing babes in the James Bond title sequences are back for "Quantum of Solace", as models spill the beans...

Titles Babes Are Back
6th October 2008

They were controversially dumped from the title sequence graphics of Daniel Craig's debut as 007, but the iconic babes are back for the upcoming adventure "Quantum of Solace".

Titles designer Daniel Kleinman opted out of the titillating silhouettes for 2006's "Casino Royale" as the credits used a raw rotoscope animation style, but "Quantum of Solace" director Marc Forster has brought in graphics house MK12 to create the new title sequence - complete with the wriggling and writhing babes.

Professional dancer Franky Wedge, perhaps best known in the UK for her appearance in Eric Prydz's "Call On Me" music video, spilled the beans to national newspapers recently. "I had an audition and I thought there was no way I was going to get it," Franky told The Sun.

"There were ten foot tall skinny models and I was like, 'Oh right'. I was actually in Milan when they told me I'd got the part, so I had to fly straight home to do a rehearsal."

Also appearing in the "Quantum of Solace" titles sequence will be fellow dancer and model Jessica Grist, who was trained at The Royal Ballet School and Birmingham Royal Ballet.

The shoot took place in July and spanned four days. "We had to get a bit naked!" said Franky. "We were wearing some things just to cover certain bits of us, but it had to look like we had nothing on! I haven't actually seen the end result yet, some of it is computer generated." She told The Daily Star, "I was very excited to do it. It was a great experience and when I am old I will always be able to turn around and say I was a Bond girl."
