IF Harris turns out to be Moneypenny - or a version thereof, obviously - I can't see EON getting much repeat business out of her. Harris has a good career; I can't see her popping up every couple of years to look doe-eyed at Craig from behnid an office desk for a few fleeting minutes.
Of course, that would be irrelevant if, as I suspect thus far, SKYFALL turns out to be Craig's swansong. Re-boot button pressed. New Bond, new M, new continuity. New Moneypenny. Again...
Personally, I can't quite understand the need for EON to co-opt the name Moneypenny, a fairly insignificant character in the books and only memorable from the movies as a result of how Terence Young, Richard Maibaum and Lois Maxwell developed the character. Can't EON think of a momeorable name of their own for a leading female - and just leave Penny behind a damned desk?
And for all those smart-
journalists with their prepared questions, rather than just asking Naomi about her fitness and training reqime, why didn't anyone think to ask if she'd been tutored in shorthand (for those who remember what that was), computer and secretarial skills????
