Bonds past and present
attend Ian Fleming tribute
James Bonds past and present
paid tribute to creator Ian Fleming at London’s Palladium theatre last night.
Daniel Craig (with his arm in a sling) and 007 veteran Sir Roger Moore,
both of whom are interviewed in
November’s GQ, took part in The Story Of James Bond: A Tribute
To Ian Fleming, a star-studded event hosted by Stephen Fry and former Bond
girl Joanna Lumley. Other Bond girls including Rosamund Pike and
Quantum Of Solace’s Gemma Arterton also put in a welcome
appearance, while Jeremy Irons and onetime Bond villain Toby Stephens read
extracts from Fleming’s memoirs and novels respectively. Fellow literary types
Sebastian Faulks, who wrote new Bond book
Devil May Care, and Charlie Higson, author of the young Bond
novels, also attended. Guests were kept well lubricated with Bond’s champagne of
choice, Dom Pérignon (the 2000 vintage as opposed to the spy’s preferred ’46).
