LONDON: Fans of Olga Kurylenko already know she's got a stunning figure following her turn as a Bond Girl.
But after being cast as a showgirl in new TV show Magic City, the Ukrainian actress is surprisingly quite a talented dancer, reported the Daily Mail on Tuesday.
Having practised ballet as a teenager and having recently taken up dancing again, the 32-year-old is pretty flexible, as she shows in this stunning photoshoot with Complex magazine.
The stunning 32-year-old wears sexy fitness wear as she shows off her toned figure in a series of stretches in a dance studio.
Acclaimed photographer Tony Kelly manages to make Olga look sultry while working out at the same time in the colourful, striking images.
Against the backdrop of Los Angeles' skyscrapers, Olga models some skimpy gym wear for the magazine's October/November 2012 issue.
Although Olga left her dancing behind in her teens, she has been forced to take it up again for Magic City and has re-taken to it like a duck to water.
Olga admitted she was actually asked to audition for the role as the more buxom, younger Lily Diamond (played by Jessica Marais), but wanted to steer away from being typecast in the obviously sexy roles.
Instead she was cast as former showgirl Vera - the wife of Miramar Playa hotel Ike Evans (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) in 1959 Miami.
In Series 2 of the show, Vera is seen returning to the stage in a series of episodes, hence Olga's return to dance training.
She tells the magazine: 'It would have been so easy for me to fall into that and go the Lily route.
'I really have to protect myself. At this point, I shouldn’t be doing those kinds of overly sexy, frequently naked roles.'
Having started her career as a model, Olga admitted she was often deluged with offers for 'trashy' parts, which she would inevitably turn down.
She explained: 'I got parts offered to me, but I didn’t want to play them because they were too trashy. Being a model, of course, people try to get you into these overly sexual parts.'
