Judi Dench On Her ‘Skyfall’ Co-Stars: ‘I Love Keeping Naughty Boys In Order’

Daniel Craig, Javier Bardem and Dame Judi Dench will appear on Britain’s The Graham Norton Show to promote the latest James Bond installment, Skyfall.

According to BBC America’s Anglophenia blog, Dench was not pleased that Craig kept his Olympic entrance with Her Majesty a secret.  “He never let on. He didn’t say a word,” she complained to Norton.

You dare keep things from Dame Judi?

Danny Boyle told me what he wanted to do and I almost walked out because I really thought he was just pulling my leg,” Craig explained of his Opening Ceremony skit.

“The next thing I know I was at the palace. I didn’t think they would get the OK from the palace, but apparently they got that first and then asked me, so I didn’t have much choice!” Norton wanted to know what kind of preparation was required to get beach ready for Skyfall, and Craig explained that certain scenes were carefully planned out ahead of time.

“I don’t look like that all the time,” Craig insisted.  “I start training about six months before we start shooting. What’s lucky is that we plan out the shirtless scenes quite carefully, so I can de-carb and all that boring stuff. The rest of the time I eat and drink what I want and just try to stay in shape.”

The episode will air on BBC America Saturday, November 3rd at 11pm ET.
