"I really liked Famke Janssen, she was a completely crazy psychopath who kills people," the French actress said. "It was a very good choice of actress, and she was very brave to have done that. It shows she had a wonderful sense of humour.
"I will try to put a bit of it [in Severine]. I'm a fan of that kind of role. There is a lot of everything, but that [crazy] side I love it, too."
Marlohe added that the experience of making a Bond movie with Sam Mendes has been "wonderful", and that she has so far shot most of her scenes in London.
Skyfall, also starring Judi Dench, Javier Bardem and Ralph Fiennes, opens in cinemas on October 26.
