Spoilers: The first scenes of Bond 25 were shot on location in Norway today
By MI6 Staff
Filming on Bond 25 began in Norway this week, but today saw the first real action from the second unit. Director Cary Fukunaga is understood to have visited the location earlier this week but had flown back to Pinewood Studios in London yesterday.
The set in Nittedal, 18 miles north of Osla in Norway, had been photographed by local media over several weeks as production grew closer. With no way of completely isolating the shoot from locals, video and photos emerged from the Bond 25 action.
Whilst none of the principal cast were involved, the scene looks to be a pivotal moment in the film.
Leaked last month when paperwork from the local production company True North appeared online, the scene was described as: "A child shoots an intruder. She is chased by a 2nd intruder and runs onto a frozen lake." It is thought that this scene is a flashback for Madeliene Swann's character, who described this story to Bond on the train in 'SPECTRE'.
Spring temperatures are warming up the area and the crew was seen to spray artificial snow between takes. Local airspace has been restricted until April 2nd, so more filming may still take place over the coming days.
