Ralph Fiennes talks about 'Skyfall' for the first time
Ralph Fiennes could not attend the "Skyfall" (Bond 23) press conference yesterday due to prior work commitments publicizing his new movie "Coriolanus" (which he also directed), but IFC
had the fortuitous timing of interviewing the actor shortly after his Bond role was confirmed.
"If you're a Bond fan," Fiennes said, "then you'll be happy."
"I can tell you that John Logan has written a fantastic screenplay and [director] Sam Mendes is a class act. They're doing something quite special I think. I think they're going to be great for Bond."
Fiennes, who said he prefers the darkness of the books over the films, and whose first cinematic 007 experience was "On Her Majesty's Secret Service", was asked whether his character would be joining in with the action sequences. "I can't answer that question," he said. "I don't get laid, that's for sure."
