In a recent interview with Digital Spy, Naomie Harris opened up about working with director Danny Boyle, 007 rumors, and her most recent feature The First Grader, which was released in the states last month, and will be in UK theaters tomorrow, Friday, the 24th.

Referencing Boyle, who originally cast her in 28 Days Later, Harris credited him with jumpstarting her career:

"He's the reason, really, that I have the career that I've had because he took a risk on me and gave me Selena in 28 Days Later. [He] really started my career for me, I'm very grateful to Danny Boyle."

In The First Grader, which tells the story of 84-year-old Kimani Maruge - a widowed former Mau Mau rebel and the oldest person ever to start primary school - Harris plays the compassionate teacher who helps him learn to read and write.

    I saw "The First Grader" about 2 weeks ago. Naomie was excellent as always.

    Really impressed by her.
