Not stirred by Bond

JEREMY IRONS has revealed that he turned down the role of James Bond.

JEREMY IRONS has revealed that he turned down the role of James Bond.

The 67-year-old actor from Watlington was shooting The French Lieutenant’s Woman in 1980 when he had a meeting with 007 producer Albert Broccoli about potentially taking over as the super-sleuth, who at the time was being played by Roger Moore.

Irons passed up the opportunity because he felt playing Bond would typecast him for the rest of his career.

He says: “I wasn’t actually very interested because, perhaps wrongly, I thought it’s such an iconic role, I would find it hard to get away from.”
