What If: An Interview With One-Time James Bond Actor George Lazenby
In an earlier post, I linked to a piece about Ian Fleming's desire to have director Alfred Hitchcock direct the first James Bond film. Now that would have been an interesting film.
Another what if to ponder is what would the Bond films been like in the 1970s had George Lazenby continued in the role after 1969's On Her Majesty's Secret Service?
I believe George Lazenby would have grown in the role and we would have done without Roger Moore's lighthearted and comedic approach to the role.
Of course my generation will always think of Sean Connery as the one and only Bond, but I believe Lazenby did fine considering he had never acted before. I'm very fond of On Her Majesty's Secret Service and I watch it every Christmas season.
Below is a video interview of George Lazenby sometime after On Her Majesty Secret Service was released.
