TALKS PLAY­ING A FE­MALE 007 IN TV’S ‘QUAN­TICO’

Quan­tico largely con­fines Priyanka Cho­pra to the sub­dued wardrobe of an in­tel­li­gence op­er­a­tive. So when she ap­peared in the Septem­ber is­sue of Marie Claire, she seized at the chance to sam­ple some more flam­boy­ant cos­tumes. The 34-year-old siz­zled in a set of faux-pe­riod en­sem­bles, telling the mag­a­zine, “I will die in Chanel!” and re­vis­it­ing a yen she’d pre­vi­ously ex­pressed to play 007. One of the two colour pho­tos caught the Bi­hari bomb­shell in a white broderie anglaise take on the pi­rate wench aes­thetic. Two strips were torn out of the mid­dle sec­tion and net­ted with straps, em­pha­sis­ing the svelte frame that helped win her Miss World in 2000. In the other colour photo, one of Time’s 100 Most In­flu­en­tial Peo­ple of 2016 wore a Y-chain and tou­sled hair. Her neck­lace was al­most un­de­tectable on a frilly, sheer pink dress redo­lent of the 1930s. Quan­tico’s sec­ond se­ries is set to kick off on the Amer­i­can channel ABC next month, yet its star is still hard at work film­ing it. Last Thurs­day, she was spot­ted on set in New York City, dressed for bat­tle in black and grey pro­tec­tive gear that in­cluded a large face-ob­scur­ing hel­met. She kept a large ma­chine gun close. She told Marie Claire of the pro­gramme, “It’s a lot of phys­i­cal work. But the real chal­lenge was con­vinc­ing Amer­ica that I could play an Amer­i­can girl.”
