We knew Ben Whishaw was playing Q in the new Bond film, Skyfall, though it hadn’t been formally, officially confirmed at any juncture I remember. That’s put right by this official image we’ve been sent of the actor in character, on the set.
Looks like he’ll grow up to be the Q we’ve known and and loved, just a very, very long time from now.
The gadget he has on the desk, because I’m sure that’s what it is, seems quite mysterious. Maybe it’s just a really heavily armoured laptop. Maybe it’s a waffle maker in a suitcase. Maybe it’s something more interesting. It’s boxy, and looks like it could take a few knocks, so that’s all I’m hoping for. Lots of knocking. High speed, car decimating, neighbourhood destroying knocking.
