Naomie Harris enjoys a challenge

Naomie Harris enjoys a "challenge" in her career.

The 'SPECTRE' star loves to keep her job as "exciting" and "varied as possible".

She told HollywoodChicago.com: "That's the joy of it. I want to keep my career as varied as possible. I want to keep challenging myself, that is what keeps it exciting.

"What is advantageous [about my job] is that we're in a time of flux, in which people are realising that old models of doing business aren't working. Before you'd just create a blockbuster script, add the right names in the mix, get a fancy director, and 'bob's your uncle,' we have a hit. It simply doesn't work like that anymore."

And the 40-year-old actress previously revealed she feels starring as Eve Moneypenny in the spy film helped to "change" her career.

She said: "It's changed my career. I just finished filming another spy film 'Our Kind of Traitor' [a John le Carré adaptation] opposite Ewan McGregor and Damian Lewis. I wouldn't have got that role if I hadn't done Bond. Financiers look at you differently because you appeal to a much wider demographic. It's all about numbers."

Meanwhile, Naomie previously admitted she didn't think she had the right "assets" to star in a Bond movie.

She explained: "I never thought I'd get it. Bond girls have always been in their 20s, so I thought I was too old. And I didn't think I had the right ... assets!"

And whilst she thoroughly enjoyed taking part in the film, she really missed it when it was all over.

She added: "You know those relationships are only going to last a certain amount of time and there's sadness and loss. You do a movie with someone, have these intense relationships for three or four months, then never see them again. That's a really tough part of the job. I live on the same road as my family and I think that's the reason why - you need some kind of continuity and stability and my family provide that."
