Naomie Harris has publicly denounced an experience of sexual harassment she suffered while auditioning for a movie, when the actor she was auditioning with groped her and ran his hand up her skirt.
“Nobody said anything because he was – and still is – a big star,” laments the British actress, despite the fact that they were in a room with other people present, such as the director of the film or the person in charge of the casting.
Harris, who this year has released Venom: There will be Carnage and No Time to Die, has recounted his unpleasant experience in an interview for You magazine , but he refuses to reveal the identity of the famous actor or give more details about the project to the one who was holding the audition. “That was my only #MeToo incident, so given how widespread that behavior was, I feel very lucky.”
“Now things have changed,” says the actress. “I was in a project where there was also a #MeToo incident and there was no hesitation at all: [the perpetrator] was immediately expelled.” Nor does he intend to provide more data on this other case.
With an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actress for Moonlight (2016) and two BAFTA nominations, Naomie Harris has been in film since the turn of the century. After several works on the small screen, 28 days later (2002) was his first major film.
Later, in addition to two installments of the Pirates of the Caribbean saga , there were action films such as El gran coup (2004), Corrupción en Miami (2006) or Dueños de la calle (2008). In 2012 he got the biggest boost of his career with the role of Moneypenny in the last three films of the James Bond saga .
