Miss Eve Moneypenny is a fictional character in the James Bond films. She is the tough and sassy secretary to M, who is Bond's boss and head of the British Secret Service.

After an absence from the 2006 James Bond film Casino Royale and its 2008 sequel Quantum of Solace, 2012's Skyfall reintroduces the character for Daniel Craig's tenure as Bond; Skyfall is the first film in which the character is given a first name, Eve. She is played by Naomie Harris, the only non-White actress to portray Moneypenny. Even though she is not considered a Bond girl, she is the first Moneypenny to have romantic moments with 007.

Film biography[]


Eve was an MI6 field agent, who during a mission with Bond in Istanbul, Turkey, spots Bond while he struggled with mercenary Patrice atop a train. M demands that Patrice be eliminated, but due to the constant movement of Bond and Patrice, Eve lacks confident she can get a good shot at Patrice. M, frustrated with such a response, bluntly orders Eve to "take the bloody shot". Eve does so, and ends up shooting Bond, resulting in his apparent death.

Afterwards she is placed under investigation. Although not reprimanded due to the extreme situation and M's direct order to shoot, she is suspended from field work. But, when Q refused to meet up with Bond at his hotel in Macau due to his fear of flying, Eve went instead, where she helps shave his stubble, and prevents him from unbuttoning her blouse. Later, she and Bond head to a Macau casino where Bond cashed in a chip he lifted from Patrice, containing a suitcase full of money and meets Sévérine before he drops his earpiece into Eve's champagne glass as he passed by. Eve then helped Bond incapacitate the last of one of Sévérine's bodyguards with the case, which he tells her to "put it all on red" before leaving to meet up with Sévérine.

Not long after Bond took Raoul Silva into custody, Eve accompanied M to an inquiry hearing, which is interrupted by a recently escaped Silva, who tries to kill M, but with the combined efforts of Bond, Gareth Mallory and herself, M was able to escape with Bond's help.

A couple of days later, after M's funeral, Eve approaches Bond, who was admiring a sunrise and states she is unfit for field work, and will now work as Mallory's executive secretary, following the former's promotion to M. Before they leave, Eve gives Bond a box containing M's Bulldog Ornament as read in her will, believing it is her way to get Bond to take a desk job. As Bond says that they have not been properly introduced, she says her full name is Eve Moneypenny.


Monneypenny helps Bond in Spectre, while he is going rogue. She tells him that The Pale King is in fact Mr. White. Later she helps Bond in London when M finds out that C is spying on all the MI6 agents. In the final act of the film she helps Bond together with the MI6-crew to capture C and Ernst Stavro Blofeld.

Moneypenny with M and Tanner

Following Logan Ash's killing Felix Leiter, Bond goes to M, demanding to be allowed to meet Blofeld in prison. When M refuses, Bond goes behind his back, asking Moneypenny for help instead. She takes Bond to see Q, getting his help in decrypting a flash drive that Bond seized from the villainous scientist Valdo Obruchev. With this, the group uncovers the true, horrifying scope of Project Heracles, that its nanobots can be reprogrammed to target entire races, resulting in genocide on a massive scale. They also help Bond to arrange his meeting with Blofeld.

Following Bond's death in staying behind to ensure the success of the missiles that take out Project Heracles, Moneypenny shares a drink with M, Q, Nomi and Tanner.
