    ‘I’m the chief make-up artist on this Bond film,’ Engelen says on location.

    ‘This is my sixth Bond film. I started with Roger Moore initially and then Pierce Brosnan in Die Another Day and now with Daniel Craig.’

    He continues: ‘First thing in the morning, we’re the first people [the cast] see. I like to think that our trailer is sort of a very tranquil place to be. There’s bit of music playing, you can have a cup of coffee or something and just generally chill out and concentrate on what’s going to lie ahead for the course of the day.’

    ‘With all make-up really, I’ve got to make it the most effective and in the speediest way I can do it. It’s really in my interest to get it down to as limited a time as possible. But I love it. It’s like painting, it’s part of the whole reason I do this job I suppose. And coming away to these very glamorous locations.’
