Smashing cars on the set of 'Skyfall'
Skyfall - 23-12-12

One witness to the action-packed pre-titles sequence was former Traffic Officer Ronnie Henderson, who was responsible for transporting the Audis and other vehicles to Turkey for the "Skyfall" crew.

Henderson talked about his time and role on set with This is Corwall.

After an interview at Pinewood, Henderson was given the role: "We used 16 Audis during one chase sequence. The action was filmed in reverse order so we had to break-up several cars for the scene."

"The digger was remotely controlled, but it was made to look as if Bond was driving it while it was on board a moving train. He used the machine to rip off the VWs in each take three VWs were destroyed as they crashed off the train."

"There were around 500 people on set. The cast and extras all knew exactly what to do so that it is safe. It needs to be as the motorbikes and cars are travelling up to 50mph or 60mph in the final take."
