Tributes from the Bond world are pouring in for production designer Peter Lamont who died today at the age of 91.
Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli said: “Peter was a much-beloved member of the Bond family and a giant in the industry. Inextricably linked with the design and aesthetic of James Bond since Goldfinger (1964), he became Production Designer on For Your Eyes Only (1981) working on 18 of the 25 films including nine as Production Designer. He was a true success story proving that with talent and hard work you will achieve your dreams. He won the Academy Award for Titanic in 1998 as well as nominations for Fiddler On The Roof (1971), The Spy Who Loved Me (1977), and Aliens (1986). Our hearts go out to his family and all those who worked with him over many years. He will be very sorely missed.”
Actor Colin Salmon wrote: "Peter Lamont was a master of design and modelling. The world of Bond would have been so much less without him and his spirit permeated the industry and the can-do heart of it. RIP maestro.
Composer David Arnold said: "Peter Lamont has left us . A genius production designer and a truly lovely man. Spent many happy hours hanging with him on set and at events. A 007 legend who everyone genuinely loved. Sending all the love to his family"
