One of the things that genuinely did surprise me about Skyfall was the performance of Bérénice Marlohe, as the seductive but damaged Severine. I was shocked at how much of a presence she was in the final film, I wasn't expecting much from a 'French TV Actress.' That was my mistake, I apologise.
However, Bond's scene at the Bar with Severine is my favourite scene of the film, maybe even in the entire series. Beautifully shot, beautifully acted, and Bérénice makes so much of a presence in that scene than I have to say that Eva Green doesn't achieve. I've always pondered over the thought of Bérénice Marlohe replacing Eva Green as Vesper in Casino Royale. Personally, I think it would be a fantastic bit of casting. She could've taken the character to so many more places. I think Casino Royale is fantastic, but Eva Green is one of few faults I have with the film.
Bérénice Marlohe as Vesper for me, would make Casino Royale a much better film.
