Javier Bardem talks a little about his experience on 'Skyfall'

09-Jun-2012 • Skyfall

It's like a gift," says Javier Bardem to The National on his role in 'Skyfall'. "I'm 43 years old, so I remember going to see the Bond movies with my father and mother."

Bardem plays the main villain - called Silva - to Daniel Craig's 007 and has recently been shooting the film across London. "It's also shooting in Istanbul and some other places I'm not allowed to say. It's amazing to think we're still shooting when we have to be opening in, what, six months."

The film is directed by Sam Mendes, who Bardem says is "doing a great job".

"He's very, very funny, a great colleague, and so strong," says Bardem of Craig. "He's shooting non-stop and I'm thinking: 'Oh my God, I don't know how you do it'. He's on top of all the stunts, and I go, 'man, if I were you, I would be a mess'. In my opinion, he's a great Bond."
