Characters: The World Is Not Enough

Characters specific to The World Is Not Enough. For those in the entire film franchise, see here.

Elektra King

Played by: Sophie Marceau

The daughter and heir of an oil magnate, she was once kidnapped for ransom by Renard. She is under the protection of MI6 after her father's assassination. It turns out she fell victim to Stockholm Syndrome to the point of joining Renard's side.

Victor "Renard" Zokas

Played by: Robert Carlyle

He is a (formerly) Soviet terrorist, Elektra's kidnapper and her father's killer. He is also her lover. He has an almost superhuman invulnerability to the feeling of pain due to a bullet lodged in his brain from a failed assassination attempt on his life by MI6.

  • Artistic License Biology: Even if that bullet in Renard's head could suppress his ability to feel pain (more than likely he'd be comatose), that does NOT simply grant him immunity from any damage. In the scene where he picks up the burning rock, his hand would still have had the skin burned off, just like Davidov (while Davidov's hand is totally bandaged in his next scene, Renard's hand remains unmarked for the rest of the film).
  • Bomb-Throwing Anarchists: Renard is also known as "Renard the Anarchist", but he espouses no anarchist philosophy. Instead, his career as a terrorist has been spent blowing things up For the Evulz. And by the time of the movie, for love.

Dr. Christmas Jones

Played by: Denise Richards

An American nuclear physicist working in Russia to dismantle nuclear warheads.

  • Hollywood Nerd: You have Denise Richards, a former fashion model, play a nuclear physicist.
  • Hot Scientist: She wears a tank-top and hot pants around a nuclear testing silo, and is apparently a brilliant physicist.
  • Never Heard That One Before: Subverted: Jones tells Bond at their first meeting that she doesn't want him to make any jokes about her name, but he mentions that he doesn't "know any doctor jokes".


Played by: John Cleese

Q's assistant. See also Q's character sheet here.

  • Butt Monkey: Often the butt of Q's jokes and experiments.

Valentin Dmitrovich Zukovsky

Played by: Robbie Coltrane

The Russian gangster who previously appeared in Goldeneye. He has made a fortune in caviar. Elektra made a secret deal with him in order to get the submarine captained by his nephew, Nikolai.

  • Big Damn Heroes: He saves Bond at literally the last moment from Elektra's strangulation chair.
  • Butt Monkey: At one point, he nearly drowns in a vat of his own caviar.
  • The Mafiya: He's still in the business, but made a fortune in caviar, so he holds court in a luxurious casino in Baku, rather than the dingy St. Petersburg nightclub from GoldenEye.
  • Moscow Centre: He was once a KGB agent.
  • Unscrupulous Hero: By the time of The World Is Not Enough, Valentin is completely on Bond's side even before learning that the villains of the movie have murdered his nephew, but he's still a ruthless gangster.


Played by: Goldie

Zukovsky's traitorous gold-toothed bodyguard.
