He seemed to know what he was doing with Bond, and it’s a shame he only did one. TWINE was able to introduce new ideas to the Bond films that have been present ever since, but the classic Bond feel is always there. He would have been great with Craig.
I know it has already been posted in the general tributes thread but I felt the passing of Nikki van der Zyl should be posted here in the Bond Alumni thread. She will always be a part of Bond history and should have been more well known and credited than she was. RIP Nikki.
Sad to hear if the passing of Yaphet Kotto - a wonderful and menacing Bond villain:
Very sad to hear this.
I had the pleasure of speaking with him via phone on behalf of AJB not too long ago. An absolute gentleman and a delight to talk with.
RIP Yaphet Kotto. A fine actor, memorable Bond villain and I was delighted that Barbel was able to interview him on our behalf...great that he turned out to be a delightful gent.
Rest in Peace Mr. Big. Yaphet Kotto was fantastic as Alonzo Mosely, FBI opposite DeNiro in "MIdnight Run"!
RIP Yaphet Kotto. Such a memorable and wonderful performance as Mr Big.
Paul Ritter, who had a small role as Guy Haines in Quantum of Solace, has died of a brain tumour at the age of 55. I always thought he was great in Friday Night Dinner and am sad he's died at such a young age.
RIP Helen McCrory at the early age of 52.
Not sure if anyone has heard of this or not but the upcoming British horror film Last Night in Soho, written and directed by Edgar Wright features the final performances of Bond girls Margaret Nolan (Dink in Goldfinger) and Dame Diana Rigg (Tracy from On Her Majesty's Secret Service) . It opens in both England and the USA in October. Having gotten into the horror genre over the last few years, I am very interested in seeing this.
Last Night in Soho looks like something to look forward to in October, Very atmospheric and great cast.
