The “peculiar” in the title, does that just refer to the children’s special powers or are they are actually quirky, unusual children in themselves? They can fly and become invisible, but at the end of the day it becomes quite normal. So much so, in fact, that she has resolved to turn down any script lacking a female character that is “equal to the man”.The French actress is best known for playing Daniel Craig’s ‘Bond girl’ Vesper Lynd in but is now fed up with the stereotypical love interest role. Some people play it very well but I want to be as equal as a man, you know what I mean? It’s exciting to be other.” , in which she plays a woman who can transform into a bird.
