She was once a Bond girl, trying to seduce Pierce Brosnan in Die Another Day. But this Bond girl has never forgotten her roots, and is back in the Philippines documenting at least seven stories to boost the Philippine tourism industry.
Rachel Louise Grant de Longueuil or Rachel Grant as she’s more commonly known, was born in the Philippines and starred with Hollywood heavyweights like Pierce Brosnan, Halle Berry and Jean-Claude Van Damme.
She’s back in the Philippines to help promote the Philippines to counter the recent negative image of the country as a killing ground because of the war on drugs.
“I am a Filipina and I love the Philippines. Abroad, there are reports on the killings in the Philippines because of drugs. I would like to counter it by producing a documentary that will promote the country as a fun destination. It’s more fun in the Philippines,” she said.
Grant was born in Paranaque but was raised in the UK with her family. She’s currently in Boracay with a videographer to document her adventures in the island paradise, which you can see in her Facebook account here.
