1. Colin Salmon On Techno-Babe M and Jinx

    By David Winter on 2002-07-09

    Empire Online has published a small article about Colin Salmon, who plays Charles Robinson in Die Another Day. There are some interesting points in the article, especially some humorous comments about Dame Judi Dench;

    British actor Colin Salmon is now back serving his country as MI6's number two in Die Another Day. M's right-hand-man, Salmon is, as ever, thrilled to be working alongside Dame Judi Dench, though the cast have been doing their best to make Dench's experience an educational one. "Judi's a dream, she's amazing," Salmon told Empire Online. "We got her into iPods and MP3s on this job so M is now a techno-babe."

    With this year marking the 40th anniversary of the series, the latest Bond adventure will have some special treats for long-time followers of the screen spy. "It's going to be really memorable," said Salmon. "It's the 40th anniversary and there's so many references for real Bond fans who know about the films. There are lots of references in the movie, it's one you definitely don't want to miss."

    Life on the Bond set seems to be treating the cast well with high expectations for 007's twentieth outing – "the story's great, you'll see… it all breaks open" – and, while Halle Berry has graduated to Oscar-winner status, Salmon has no doubts that there's nowhere she'd rather be than working on Britain's most famous franchise. "Jinx is a really well-written part, the writers have done amazing stuff. The character is complex, interesting. She's a hero. That's the thing, we now have strong women and they do the business."
