|~ Miranda Frost's last words while taunting Jinx.|
Miranda Frost is the secondary antagonist in the 2002 James Bond film Die Another Day. Frost is a MI6 agent working for Gustav Graves.
She was portrayed by Rosamund Pike, who also played Amy Elliot-Dunne in Gone Girl.
Miranda Frost was a Harvard-educated, salubriously luscious, gold medal-winning Olympic fencer (trained by Verity) posing as Graves' publicist and fencing partner. She won gold at the 2000 Sydney Olympics by default, after Graves organized the real gold medalist's death by drug overdose.
While Bond is sent to kill North Korean Colonel Tan-Sun Moon, Frost secretly sends Bond's true identity to Moon's right hand Tang Lin Zao. This leads to Bond's imprisonment at a North Korean torture camp, where he is brutally interrogated for 14 months before being exchanged for a captive Zao.
Double Agent and Betrayal
Frost was sent by M to work alongside Bond, but does not approve of Bond's methods. When caught by Mr. Kil and several guards , Miranda helps Bond keep incognito by kissing him. They later go to Bond's room and have sex. Unbeknownst to this, Frost empties the magazine of Bond's gun after this.
When Bond awakens and goes after Graves, Miranda pleads for him not to go, but he insists. Later when Bond faces Graves at gunpoint, Miranda arrives as well, also aiming her gun at Graves. However, Graves asks Bond whether he already found out who betrayed him in North Korea, prompting Frost to aim her gun at Bond, revealing that she was the one who betrayed Bond. Bond escapes with the ring that Q gave him by breaking the glass floor beneath them, and Frost and Bond fall into the jungle environment part of the Ice Palace. Frost shoots at Bond while he runs off, but misses and Bond escapes.
When Jinx and Bond enter Grave's plane to kill him, Jinx goes to the cockpit while Bond goes after Graves. However, Jinx is caught by Frost, (who somewhat is only wearing a bra and trousers) who fights Jinx, and she and Jinx have a climactic fight aboard the descending plane. Frost narrowly sliced Jinx in the stomach but Jinx manages to impale a dagger in the chest of Frost, thereby killing her.
Bond was later shown to have mourned Frost; clearly showing, despite her treachery, that he did love her. Jinx convinced him to let her go, because their own lives were in danger. Moneypenny was later shown to have a file on Frost, marked CLOSED.
- There was supposed to be a scene where Bond and Frost seduced each other in a hot tub. However, this scene did not make it to the final cut, but it is unknown why it was deleted.
- Miranda's role as a double agent mirrors that of Riley Hicks in Fast & Furious 6.
