Film note

One of several similarities between Casino Royale and Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation concerns the female lead. In each case she's an English character portrayed by an actress who in terms of residence and upbringing is not English: Vesper Lynd as played by Eva Green (French) and Ilsa Faust as played by Rebecca Ferguson (Swedish). And if you ask why we even bothered to look this up, it's that for both films, besides the plot resemblances, those characters have English accents that one tends not to hear in England. Is this what Hollywood has set as the new standard for such things?
