She also had a minor role as one of Princess Padme's handmaidens, Dorme in Star Wars Episode 2: Attack of the Clones.
Byrne has beaten out other hopeful actresses for this coveted Bond Girl film role such as
Angelina Jolie (who turned the role down because of her recent pregnancy),
Charlize Theron (wanted too much money)
and Rachael Stirling (LEFT) - daughter of Diana Rigg (RIGHT)(who was Bond Girl Tracy in 1969's On Her Majesty's Secret Service).
Casino Royale was Ian Fleming's first James Bond Novel, originally published in 1953.
In it, Bond is sent out on his very first 'Licence To Kill' Mission; he has been provided with an assistant from MI6, the beautiful but emotionally turbulent Russian Born Vesper Lynd, who becomes his lover but she is holding a terrible secret from Bond.
'Casino Royale', starring Daniel Craig in his first appearance as James Bond (he replaced Brosnan who was released from the role after four films) begans shooting at the end of the month and is scheduled to for release this November.

im so pumped.. i love rose byrne.. she is sooo much better suited than all those other options... i dont think angelina is attractive at all.. so i would not have liked her to be a bond girl... :S
i just hope they dont try to make her "smart"... i dont want a bond girl that is more street smart than bond... but at the same time i dont want a bimbo...
i want a bond girl that is intelligent, and powerfull... but maybe has lost a bit of her confidence, and needs to be saved... (but still wont get herself caught up in some contrived trap the villain leaves for bond)...
if there is one thing i hate, its the old "bond girl, needs rescuing storyline"...
the girlfriend of clive owen in sin city is sorta the street smarts that i want her to have, but at the same time she needed the stronger male to help her out...
nice choice! melikes a lot...
