‘To me, the Bond situations are so ridiculous, so outrageous. I mean, this man is supposed to be a spy and yet, everybody knows he’s a spy. Every bartender in the world offers him martinis that are shaken, not stirred. What kind of serious spy is recognized everywhere he goes? It’s outrageous.’

‘Sadly, I had to retire from the Bond films. The girls were getting younger, or I was just getting too old.’

‘Teach love, generosity, good manners and some of that will drift from the classroom to the home and who knows, the children will be educating the parents.’

‘I would love to be remembered as one of the greatest Lears or Hamlets. But, as that’s not going to happen, I’m quite happy I did Bond.’

‘I’ve not planned my funeral. I’m not the Queen. A procession through the streets of Stockwell would be nice, I suppose. But when I go, I’d just like everyone to say: “He lived longer than anyone I knew.”‘
