Has Miss Moneypenny finally found her real-life 007? Actress Naomie Harris snuggles up at wedding to budding actor Davor Tomic who describes himself as ‘the true James Bond’
The sexual frisson between secretary and spy has sizzled on the big screen for 60 years. Now Miss Moneypenny actress Naomie Harris appears to have struck up a close friendship with a handsome actor who likens himself to 007.
As these exclusive photographs show, the 45-year-old actress – who has played Eve Moneypenny in the past three Bond films – seemed relaxed in the company of actor Davor Tomic at a wedding in Florence last weekend.
Mr Tomic, 40, has described himself online as ‘the true James Bond’ and his handle on Instagram included the number 007 before it suddenly vanished on Friday after The Mail on Sunday made enquiries about their friendship.

The pair travelled to Italy for the wedding of Mr Tomic’s sister Ana, with Ms Harris later taking to social media to praise the ‘magical’ three days she spent celebrating the nuptials.
Her long-term banker partner, Peter Legler, with whom she was last photographed in November, was not seen at the celebrations in Florence, but Mr Tomic was gallantry personified.
After he had helped Ms Harris change from flat shoes to high heels outside the 17th Century Palazzo Corsini overlooking the Arno river, they posed for what are believed to be wedding snaps.
The actress, whose other roles include Winnie Mandela in Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom and a witch in two Pirates Of The Caribbean movies, began dating Mr Legler in 2012. However, there has been no recent mention of her on his social media.

A former athlete who speaks seven languages, Mr Tomic was born in Croatia but moved to London as a child.
In his casting profile, Mr Tomic says his journey into acting was ‘quite unusual’, adding: ‘I was always fascinated by film but it was only when I finished playing basketball as a professional did I start thinking about acting.’
Friends of Mr Tomic, who founded a luxury Croatian villa company before attending the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in 2019, tease him over his likeness to James Bond. Congratulating his sister Ana on her wedding, one pal wrote on social media: ‘You know I am always there! Just call… as your 007 brother will probably be unavailable!’
In a reply, Mr Tomic, who posed in a tuxedo at the Cannes Film Festival beside a James Bond billboard last year, referred to himself as ‘the true James Bond’.
Ms Harris’s representatives did not respond for a request to comment.
