The ride probably shaved a few weeks off Mary Carilloâs life, but the look of sheer terror on her face as James Bondâs Aston Martin briefly went airborne during a high-speed run through the English countryside is worth the agony. At least for viewers.
It was part of her immersion into all things Bond for a feature Sunday in NBCâs prime time. She visits a warehouse filled with props from years of Bond movies, sees a tailor to get the secrets of the Bond look and learns how to make a cocktail âshaken, not stirred.â
âItâs nice to have relief from all of the sports,â said Carillo, whose non-British specific feature on the old Soviet gymnast Olga Korbut aired Sunday morning. âYou want to remind people of where you are and what the history and the culture are all about.â
Carillo, who also anchors NBCâs late-night coverage, said sheâd prepared about 20 features for the London Games. âMy stories are landing in different incarnations at different lengths,â she said.
