The 35-year-old will be the first black actress to play the role.
Harris was announced for the franchise’s latest film ‘Skyfall’ just after the new Bond girl Berenice Marlohe was revealed.
The actress confirmed that she would play Eve, a field agent, at a London press conference for the film.
“I’ve been doing yoga three times a week, stunt driving and firing machine guns – which I discovered I had a real taste for. I’m raring to go!” People Magazine quoted Harris as saying.
The upcoming movie is the James Bond franchise’s 23rd instalment.
