Skyfall shoots in Shanghai
Last week, the second unit team were spotted in Shanghai, China where they filmed amongst the neon highways. Filming lasted for three days and the crew were joined by Quantum of Solace stunt man Mark Higgins, who has previously won the British Rally Championship three times. Daniel Craig and the rest of the crew will not be going to China for filming. Interior sets have been created at Pinewood Studios. A glimpse of this set can be seen on the official 007.com introduction video by Michael G Wilson. Filming already started in for this scene at the Ascot Racecourse, doubling for the international airport in Shanghai.
Berenice Marlohe on Severine (Interview)
"It's very difficult in France to get access to castings when you don't have any relationships, I totally heard by chance that they were doing the casting for a James Bond movie, and that one of the auditions was taking place in Paris. So I tried myself to contact every name involved in the movie I could possibly find on the IMDb! I finally managed to get the first audition in Paris, then I did the second in London with Sam Mendes, and then the third was with Sam and Daniel Craig, again in London. And then I was cast!"
Berenice Marlohe on her favourite Bond girl, Famke Janssen (Xenia Onnatopp from GoldenEye)
"She was so funny, so bold and so interesting!" she commented. "When you see all the Bond Girls, they have actually been very varied. So I'm working on creating a character as I would for any movie, which is to make her interesting for me"
Naomi Harris was interviewed last week about her character and she confirmed that her character has no involvement with Miss Moneypenny whatsoever. She was prompted about Eve's surname and whether it was going to be a gag like Onnatopp or Pussy Galore, she said "Will her name make people laugh? Um, yes. Yes, I suppose it will."
Lift shaft filming?
The latest clapper-board picture from the official 007 Twitter page reveals that they are filming some scenes from the movie in an industrial area. The image appears as though it has been taken next to a lift shaft. The fact that this location appears quite dark suggests that this scene will be appearing just before the scene in the club in Shanghai. The scene's reference number from the club was V64BA and the number from the latest clapper-board scene by a lift shaft is V63E.
