New Bond girl Lea Seydoux has revealed the "strong" chemistry between her and Daniel Craig.

Seydoux, who plays psychologist Dr Madeleine Swann in the new Bond film Spectre, said: "He is the perfect James Bond - the best ever, I think, serious and strong as well as intelligent.

"We have the same sense of humour. There was a real complicity. Even when filming serious scenes we joked and had fun.

"It was always that 'wink, wink' feeling between us. The chemistry was strong. I hope the audience can feel that."

Seydoux made the comments in an interview with the Mail on Sunday's You magazine. She added: "I'm so lucky. Every girl wants to be in a film with Daniel Craig, right?"

The French actress caused a stir in 2013 when she starred in Blue Is The Warmest Colour - the independent French film which famously included an extended lesbian sex scene.

She is currently appearing in The Lobster alongside Daniel Craig's off-screen wife Rachel Weisz and Colin Farrell.

Spectre opens in cinemas on October 26.
