New Q Cast James Bond

November 25, 2011 by staff 

New Q Cast James Bond, Rising British actor Ben Whishaw is to star as gadget master Q in the upcoming James Bond film.

The 31-year-old mop-haired television and big screen star is known for roles in the 2008 film, Brideshead Revisited, and more recently in the hugely popular British TV drama, The Hour.

Whishaw will be the youngest person ever to play the MI6 geek, traditionally responsible for providing 007 with his tricky range of field equipment.

‘His role will be very different from previous Qs. He’ll be far more serious, as is the trend with the new films,’ a source close to the production of the new flick, Skyfall, told British newspaper The Sun.

The character was played for 36 years by Desmond Llewelyn, who died in a car crash a short time after starring in the 1999 Bond film, The World Is Not Enough.

Since then, Q has returned to the Bond cast only once, played by John Cleese in 2002 in Die Another Day. Skyfall is due to make its world premiere in October next year.
