Bonds Old and New Meet Queen at Premiere

19 November 2002 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

James Bonds past and present teamed up last night for the premiere of Die Another Day. Current 007 Pierce Brosnan was joined by predecessors Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton and George Lazenby at the glittering bash - also attended by Britain's Queen Elizabeth II. The actors were among a host of screen favorites who turned out for the launch of the 20th Bond film at London's Royal Albert Hall - 40 years after the agent's first film outing. Moore, 75, who arrived with Swedish wife Kiki Tholstrup, said, "I'm delighted to be here for 40 years of Bond. He is the classic British character. I really enjoyed playing 007 and was even lucky enough to get some of his toys." Dalton, 56, said he still enjoyed the excitement of Bond premieres and added, "It's great to be here." Handsome Brosnan, 49, who stars alongside Oscar-winner Halle Berry, arrived with real-life wife Keely Shaye Smith. He said, "I really love playing James Bond. Unfortunately I'm just an actor. I'd really like to be the real thing. This role has been one of the best yet and I am very proud of the film. There's never been a film premiere like this." The only Bond missing from the gathering was Sean Connery, the first to play the secret agent. He was invited by organizers, but told them he would not be able to attend as he is filming in Prague, Czech Republic. The Queen met Brosnan, Halle - who plays US agent Jinx - and movie villain Toby Stephens, plus Madonna, who has a small role in the film and sings the theme tune. The Queen asked Brosnan, "So you're the modern James Bond are you? I've met the other three downstairs." »
