Judi Dench confirms Casino Royale changes for China despite zero cut censor claims

26-Jan-2007 • Casino Royale

In an interview with CTV, Dame Judi Dench confirmed that she had to redub some of her lines for Casino Royale's forthcoming release in China, despite reports that the film would be release 'uncut'.

In this year's "Casino Royale," Dench gets to poke fun at the anachronistic nature of the James Bond franchise itself, declaring, "[Expletive], I miss the Cold War."

"Yes, I wasn't allowed to say that for China," Dench remarked. "I had to re-dub it. It was: 'God, I miss the old times.' Not quite the same thing."

There is but one disappointing aspect of her Oscar nomination for her leading role in "Notes on a Scandal.", she says: she will likely not be able to attend the Feb. 25 ceremony because she will be undergoing knee surgery.
