SHERLOCK star Lara Pulver has landed a role as a real-life Bond girl.
The brunette, 32, who set viewers’ pulses racing when she stripped naked in the BBC1 drama, is set to play 007 creator Ian Fleming’s wife in a new four-part series.
Dominic Cooper will star as the Bond books writer in the Sky Atlantic show, due to be screened later this year.
Lara will play Ann, a society figure who was Viscountess Rothermere for several years after marrying the proprietor of the Daily Mail.
She later wed Fleming and they were married for 12 years until his death in 1964.
Lara said: “I am thrilled to be playing Ann, a real-life high society siren worthy of Fleming’s finest fictional femme fatales.
“In extraordinary times Ann had the ear of politicians as powerful as Churchill and counted artists like Lucian Freud among her friends, yet was consumed by a torrid romance with the great Ian Fleming – a twisted and passionate love that would last the rest of their lives.”
The part may prove to be another saucy role for Lara as the couple were said to have enjoyed spanking.
