Eva Green, seen here in Casino Royale, is Josephine Jobert's cousin

Josephine opened up to HELLO! about her cousin's role as a Bond girl, and even revealed her ambition to land a part in the film franchise herself.

"I'd love it!" she began, adding: "It's so funny, and I'm not making this up, I receive so many messages from people and fans who say to me, 'You should be the next Bond girl.' It's something that happens pretty often. And I screenshot every single message. I have to keep them just in case I meet the casting director and I can say 'Look at this!'"

Josephine's aunt, Marlène Jobert (Eva's mother) is also an esteemed French actress and her mother, Véronique Mucret Rouveyrollis, is also well-known in the industry. The Death in Paradise star also opened up about having a famous family and whether she ever gets starstruck.

"Not really," she told HELLO!, "I think because my whole family is in this industry. I do it and I love my job, but I always take a step back. I see the person before the star. We're all human beings."
