“Spy craft is incredibly low-fi. There are exotic words like ‘dead drop’ and ‘brush pass’ but it literally means you waking into a supermarket with the same Sainsbury’s carrier bag as me and us leaving with each other’s bags – you’ve seen it in a thousand thriller movies.” – Damian Lewis

Damian Lewis Talks James Bond: Books, Movies and the Never-ending Rumors *UPDATED*

“The great thing about Bond is how bad a spy he is, and how brilliant he is in recovering his position. Bond makes endless mistakes. That’s what’s fun about him, and then [he] has to do something extraordinary to recover himself.” – Damian Lewis

Well, these recent remarks Damian made about 007 at the Damian Lewis: Spy Wars special screening and Q&A  at the British Museum make it inevitable to share this post one more time. ENJOY!

Rumor has had it since June 2015 that Damian Lewis is in “the running” to be the next James Bond. Given that Daniel Craig is coming back to play the world’s most famous secret agent again in the 25th official James Bond movie, the rumor does not hold much water at the moment. However, it is such a FUN rumor that we could not resist blogging about it earlier here and are still having fun with it! Besides, it is a true pleasure to see how Damian handles the 007 questions with some fresh humor every single time.

As the inevitable 007 question has popped up left right in the last three years, here is my TOP gotta LOVE this guy” 007 moments with! Continue reading “Damian Lewis Talks James Bond: Books, Movies and the Never-ending Rumors *UPDATED*”
