Ola Rapace on his scenes
Ola Rapace has finally started discussing his involvement in SkyFall. "We have had great fun. Bond filming is like a playhouse, you can ride a motorcycle, fighting and shooting automatic weapons and things like that. So it's fun and has been really good." Rapace was rumoured to have a role in the movie until it was finally confirmed after the press conference. He still hasn't given us any clue as to what part he is playing in the film, but we assume that he will be playing a henchman of the films main villain played by Javier Bardem.
Rapace is more used to television productions, so suddenly being a part of the largest and most recognised franchise in the world has shocked him. "Everything is bigger than I had thought, it's so much miscle, so much money, so many resources available anywhere. It's crazy really."
He has said that his scenes have finished for now, but he will be returning in March to shoot some more scenes through May.
Canary Warf scenes and images
Last week, it was confirmed that scenes from SkyFall will be taking place at the Four Seasons hotel in Canary Warf. We also suspected that these scenes would also feature an indoor spa (and we were right).
During filming, the spa was closed to the public and the windows of over-looking flats were blacked out. Somehow, someone managed to snap a few shots. To see the images, take a look at the gallery at the end of this blog post.
Helen McCrory is not playing Miss Moneypenny
After Ben Whishaw was confirmed as Q, we automatically thought that Miss Moneypenny was also going to get a part, with Helen McCrory seeming like the perfect actress for the role. And she even said that she would have a 'minor role in the film'.
Helen McCrory told the British public that she would be playing a politicial and member of the British Parliament called Clair Dowar.
Whitehall rooftop shoot
Last week Daniel Craig and Naomi Harris was spotted on the roof of the Whitehall in London. This is the first time Naomi Harris has been seen in character so far. From the photographs taken by the bpulic, we can see that this is scene number 172, which will be featured near the end of the film. See the photographs in the gallery below.
London's Charing Cross night shoot
Cameras were being set up at Charing Cross station in London on Thursday. Sign posts have been put up stating that the station is going to be called 'Temple station'. Temple is a London underground station in Westminster near Temple Place. The shoot is scheduled to start at 6:30pm and 5:30am. The station closes at 00:30 and will not reopen again until the first train leaves at 5:40. Presumably, filming will take place when the public is not around.
Aston Martin makes a comeback in SkyFall
Voted as the most famous car in the world, the Aston Martin DB5 will be making a spectacular comeback in SkyFall. Pictures were taken last night at a light industrial estate near Lewisham by the public. Daniel Craig and Judi Dench were said to be in the car as it drove past, Craig obviously at the wheel.
