1. Tell us a little about Sophie Green
Sophie is... well, she's blonde. Even when she dyes her hair brown she's still blonde. She's spent so much of her life being so blonde, in fact, that she's almost forgotten that she's actually a fairly smart cookie. But happily for her, someone else also noticed--although maybe not so happily, since the someone else wanted to recruit her for the Security Service. She made a pretty rubbish spy, truth be told, but she did save the day on a number of occasions, notably when there was no one else around to save it. She lost her job last year due to cutbacks--ie she was the least useful person on the team--and has been trying to get back into the fold ever since.
2. Is there anyone special is Sophie's life?
There is someone special in Sophie's life, yes. He's actually the guy who recruited her, and he's a consummate spy. Or at least he was, until he fell in love with a human hurricane and lost his mind. His name is Luke Sharpe, and he's from a very old, very rich family. He's trained with the RAF, the SAS, and now he's with MI6. He's smart, he's strong and handsome, he's got a sense of humour and he makes James Bond look dorky. So what if he has all the emotional ability of a fruit fly? Sophie can work on that...
3. Hollywood are on the phone....Who would you like to see cast as lead characters ?
I've never cast either Luke or Sophie to my own satisfaction. But, Mr Spielberg, Mr Weinstein, Ms Epron...who am I kidding? This is my fantasy, and it's Joss Whedon directing the movie. So, Mr Whedon, I rather like the look of Michael Fassbender for Luke, or possibly Paul Bettany. Rupert Penry-Jones would also be considered for the role. As for Sophie, well Joss, what do you think? Sophia Myles would be a good choice, or do you think we could get Kate Winslet? And while we're enjoying this little fantasy, let's go back a few years and have a young Johnny Depp playing Jack. What so you mean, impossible? Oh all right, we'll have Robert Pattinson instead. What do you think? Joss? Joss?
