James Bond actress Naomie Harris has spoken out about the sexual harassment she experienced during the audition process for a film. 

The British actress revealed to the Mail on Sunday You magazine that a “huge” star put his hand up her skirt during an audition.

“What was so shocking about it was the casting director was there and the director, and of course no one said anything because he was – he is – such a huge star,” Harris told the publication.

“That was my only #MeToo incident, so I felt very lucky given how rife that behaviour was. Now things have definitely changed: I was on a project where there was a #MeToo incident and there was no hesitation… (the perpetrator) was immediately removed,” she continued.

Harris declined to name the star who groped her, and also didn’t say the name of the actor who was removed from the set in the other incident.

The actress has co-starred in films including No Time To Die, two Pirates of the Caribbean films, Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom, and she received an Oscar nomination for best supporting actress in the 2017 drama Moonlight

Harris will next be seen alongside her Moonlight co-star Mahershala Ali in Swan Song. Ali picked up a Golden Globe Award nomination Monday morning for his role in the film.
