Rory Kinnear speaks about returning as Tanner in 'Skyfall'
As well as currently reprising his role as M's chief of staff Bill Tanner in "Skyfall" (confirmed by some on set photos
earlier this month) Rory Kinnear is appearing on British television in Charlie Brooker's "Black Mirror". CultBox.co.uk
spoke to the actor about both projects and here are some highlights:
Youâre currently filming the new James Bond film, Skyfall, returning as M's Chief of Staff, Bill Tanner. Howâs that going so far?
"Great, weâve just been at Pinewood and around Waterloo and Spitalfields doing some scenes with myself and Daniel [Craig] and Judi [Dench]. I go through to the beginning of February filming and I think theyâre on until about April or May."
That sounds like a fairly long shoot for you, does this mean that we see a bit more of Tanner this time around?
"Yes, Tanner gets a bit more facetime this time, [the part] is a bit more beefed-up. Heâs basically performing the same role but thereâs a bit more of him."
Thereâs a lot of excitement surrounding the film with the 50th anniversary coming up; is that excitement present on set as well?
"I think everyoneâs generally just really excited about the script and how good it is - and weâve got Sam [Mendes] directing.
"Obviously this is now my second one so I know how Daniel and Judi work. We all seem to get on very well so it feels like Iâm becoming slightly more part of the family."
