New DAD Video Reveals Details On Q
RTL Germany have published another video about the making of Die Another Day.
Todays is another video about John Cleese and his role as Q. The video contains mostly footage that we've seen in other 'making of' videos. However, there are two new interesting shots sure to pike up the interest of Bond fans.
The first is this image of cast and crew filming part of The Underground scenes. It's an angle of filming that hasn't been seen before now;
The second image, and the hardest to find in the video as its such a short clip, is of Q saluting complete with heel clicking. The question is, is this Cleese being funny off camera, or does the new Q hold a military rank much like Major Boothroyd (Desmond Llwellyn's Q) did/does.
Some interesting issues are raised. It's unlikely that we'll actually discover the new Q's real name through the films, the best we can hope for is a future novel from Glidrose by an author such as Raymond Benson to reveal his name.
