Bond jumps into
April 16, 1999
LONDON - Filming
continued in London on Friday -- this time at Millwall Dock on the Isle of Dogs in
David Williams has been keeping us updated with pictures
and reports from filming, and this time he got some help from
someone who knows how to photograph the action -- Vic
Armstrong. He had five cameras of his own to watch so he
couldn't direct David's as well, but he did tell him where to
get the best shots.
The first sequence being filmed on Friday involved two two
police launches nearing a low bridge over the dock. The take was not without it's injuries though. Some extras
who took their position near the bank were drenched when the
boats turned to avoid the closed bridge. Among them, Patricia O'Reilly, EON's publicity
assistant! (Pictured below on the left)
was a huge stunt being filmed as well.
Wade Eastman turned over control of the Q boat to stuntman
Gary Powell who took several hours to prepare for the jump.
The jump involves the Q boat,
driven by Bond, chasing another boat, driven by
the Cigar Girl. As she fires her gun at him, Bond decides to
take her, and the gun, out of action.
Later in the afternoon, the weather was responsible for
people being drenched, but the crew did manage one more stunt
before heading back to base.
