As 'Casino Royale' celebrates its 10th anniversary, MI6 looks back to the making of the film with rarely seen behind the scenes video from the production. This second installment focusses on the location shoot in the Bahamas.

Bond arrives at Paradise Island, Bahamas by seaplane, and later drives along a coastal road to the real life One & Only Ocean Club resort where he eventually meets Dimitrios and his beautiful wife Solange.

"It’s important that a Bond film has glamorous and exotic locations. We had a location in the Bahamas around the One & Only Club on Paradise Island where Bond tracks down Dimitrios," explained producer Michael G. Wilson.

The Albany Estate, on the West Coast of New Providence Island served as Dimitrios’ beachfront mansion, where Bond emerges from the sea to watch Solange leading her horse along the sand.

Caterina Murino says she was thrilled to be working with Judi Dench, although under unusual circumstances: "I had only one scene with Judi and by that time I was dead. Can I still say I acted with Judi Dench, even though I was only acting dead?"
