    Access Hollywood sent correspondent Tim Vincent to the Quantum of Solace set in Bregenz, Austria to speak with the stars of the film, and, apparently, get the answer to one single question: do James Bond and Camille kiss?

    Besides that question, stemming from earlier reports that Olga Kurylenko’s Bond girl breaks tradition in that she never locks lips with 007, the set visit also included an interview with Daniel Craig on stunts, the recent series of bad accidents and more.

    ‘I think [getting involved in all aspects] is important,’ said Craig. ‘I mean, for me, one of the things about the books that was so great was Ian Fleming’s eye for detail. And that I feel I owe to the movie. And so we have to have meetings about which gun to use; we’re using the Walther PPK in this, but we also use other guns and we set them out and compare them and see what would look good…’

    ‘It feels like we’re working twice as hard as last time–well, I certainly am anyway–to just make sure that while one movie is good, two movies is nice too,’ said Craig.

    Craig also commented on the stuntwork that co-star Kurylenko has had to deal with for her role: ‘With Olga, she rehearsed and rehearsed and I think she’s done incredibly well, but, like for me [on Casino Royale], you get there on day one and suddenly it’s like “Oh, this is what they mean.” It’s very physically demanding and doing something once is alright, but you have to do it ten times and get it right ten times. So they’re long days. I’ve just been quietly encouraging her and she’s been getting it right so it’s not a problem.’

    The Bond actor also briefly commented on the string of accidents that hit the Quantum production a few weeks ago.

    ‘We’re in a situation which is sort of devastating for all of us,’ he said. ‘What we do is make safe things look dangerous and sometimes accidents happen.’
