James Bond is known the world over for his daring antics, taking on the world’s most evil men in the name of Queen and country.

Currently portrayed by Daniel Craig, Bond travels all over the world, confronting his enemies and seducing beautiful women along the way.

In the film Spectre, Craig’s fourth film as 007, Bond confronts the terrorist ring known as Spectre, who are responsible for a terrorist bombing plot in Mexico.

Killing the terrorist responsible for the plot, Marco Sciarra, Bond travels to Rome for his funeral, where he meets and seduces his widow Lucia Sciarra, played by Monica Belluci.

Sceptre is far from Belluci’s first role on screen, having also starred in the sci-fi films The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions, amongst many others, and having cultivated an expansive career as a model for fashion houses such as Dolce & Gabbana and Dior.

Born in Italy, Monica, 57, has also led an interesting life, and was at one point married to the well-known French actor Vincent Cassel.
