Characters for the 2006 film.
Vesper Lynd (Eva Green)
Treasury agent who is tasked to accompany Bond to the poker tournament at Casino Royale, posing as his wife.
- Break the Cutie: She has to play along with everything to steal Bond's money and rescue her kidnapped/dead boyfriend.
- Heroic BSOD: She goes through one after seeing several men get killed.
- Meaningful Name - Vesper Lynd is a pun on "West Berlin". Berlin was a city split down the middle during the Cold War. Vesper's loyalties are split down the middle.
- Show Some Leg: She wears a low-cut dress given by Bond to be a distraction during the card game.
Adolph Gettler (Richard Sammel)
A man in Mr. White's employment, whose job is to collect the Casino Royale winnings in Venice from Vesper.
- Eyepatch of Power: His half-darkened glasses.
- Moe Greene Special: Dies when Bond puts a nail through his eye, with same nail gun that he attacked Bond with moments earlier.
Le Chiffre (Mads Mikkelsen)
A banker for terrorist funds who uses them in his own moneymaking schemes. After one goes disastrously wrong due to Bond's interference, he is forced to hold the poker tournament at Casino Royale to hastily win back the losses.
- Dragon-in-Chief: Works for Mr. White, who is The Man Behind the Man.
- Evil Genius
- Hollywood Nerd
- Meaningful Name: Le Chiffre means "The Cypher" in French. In the novel, it was an alias deliberately chosen by the villain (real name never provided) because he was nothing more than a "number" to the displaced persons bureaucracy.
- Red Right Hand: He weeps blood from his left eye when stressed. It gets lampshaded.
"Weeping blood comes merely from a derangement of the tear duct. Nothing sinister."
- Smug Snake: A rather creepy version of this trope.
Solange Dimitrios (Caterina Murino)
The first Bond Girl in the movie. The wife of one of Le Chiffre's henchman, she's in a loveless relationship and willingly sleeps with Bond in order to spite her husband. She indirectly helps Bond stop Le Chiffre but ends up getting tortured to death for this.
- All Girls Want Bad Boys
- Cruel and Unusual Death: Solange is tortured to death offscreen.
- Genre Savvy: Is fully aware that James slept with her for information. She goes along anyway.
- Your Cheating Heart: Due to her bitter relationship with Alex.
- Unholy Matrimony: Not so much unholy as bitter and devoid of affection.
Alex Dimitrios (Simon Abkarian)
A contractor working for Le Chiffre.
