The star of the British drama Space Island One was rumored to be in the running for Elliot Harmsway`s (last name later changed to Carver) wife in Tomorrow Never Dies. A member of Bondklub Deutschland (German Bond Club) spoke with Bremermann`s agency in Hamburg and they confirmed that she had a casting session for TND.
As a result Roger Spottiswoode wanted her to portray Elliot Harmsway`s German wife, a former serious love affair of Bond. But Spottiswoode wasn`t allowed to give her a contract when the producers and MGM/UA said Bremermann would be one German element too much (as they already had Hamburg as a location and Götz Otto as a henchman and BMW as Bond`s car). So she didn`t get the job and Spottiswoode was told to accept Teri Hatcher, which caused a lot of trouble between the director and the producers.
