The 'Die Another Day' star makes a history in the James Bond franchise by becoming the first woman to give voice in a retelling.

British actress has made James Bond history by becoming the first woman to narrate a 007 story for a new audiobook series. The "Die Another Day" star will give voice to Bond creator Ian Fleming's words in a retelling of "The Spy Who Loved Me".

She tells WENN, "I do a lot of audio books just for fun because I like using voice to create character. Most recently I've done one of the James Bond novels, The Spy Who Loved Me, which is coming out. It's the only one that was narrated by a woman."

"They're releasing the whole audio set of all 20 original Fleming/Bond novels next year."
