Daniel Craig was filmed in character visiting Buckingham Palace to meet with the royal before climbing into a helicopter together
Actor Daniel Craig says he was feeling
grumpy on the day he filmed a James Bond sketch with Queen
Elizabeth II for the Olympics Opening Ceremony.
Craig, 44, said he used a day off from shooting new 007
movie Skyfall to film the sequence and as a result he was
not on top form, reported Daily Star.
"She was fun, incredibly game. We had a short space of
time and I was a bit grumpy as it was my day off and suddenly
I am at the Palace with the Queen at her private chamber.
"And she improvises a little bit. She was supposed to be
sitting at the desk and she asked if she could write, so she
pretended to write," he said.
The actor was filmed in character visiting Buckingham
Palace to meet with the royal before climbing into a
helicopter together and appearing to parachute into London's
Olympic Stadium during the sporting extravaganza in July.
