Rather than simply playing
a henchman as first reported, Taubman insists his role
is larger, and more of a secondary villain to the lead
baddie played by French actor Mathieu Amalric. After
confirming his character will also be French, he said "it
is a really big role, but I must not say more".
As with the other cast and crew members,
Taubman is bound by a strict confidentiality agreement. "Anyone
involved in the Bond production must sign a 'non disclosure
agreement' which includes everything down to the last detail",
he said. "It is fitting that there is so much secrecy
on a production for the most famous agent in film history."
Taubman has the script and guards it like
a treasure, and does not even travel with it. He said the
role in the Bond film will open doors to him which have
alluded the European actor despite previously working on
several Hollywood productions. "An appearance in
a Bond film represents a completely different dimension
that cannot be compared to any other project."
