Trivia that mentions this person:
Casino Royale [2006]
  • Daniel Craig is the first actor to be under the age of forty and play James Bond since George Lazenby in On Her Majesty's Secret Service.
    Diamonds Are Forever [1971]
  • George Lazenby was asked to make a second [Bond] movie but declined, due to a lengthy and restrictive potential contract. Burt Reynolds was the original choice to replace him but was unavailable. Then American actor [?] John Gavin was signed to play James Bond in this movie. At the time, he had recently played the French Spy OSS 117 in the Eurospy flick OSS 117 - Double Agent. Adam West turned down the role because he felt that James Bond should be a British actor. Michael Gambon turned down the role because he was "in terrible shape" and "had tits like a woman." At the last minute Sean Connery agreed to return as Bond for the sixth time in a two-picture deal and at an astronomical salary for the time. Producer Albert R. Broccoli insisted that Gavin be paid-out the full salary called for in his contract.
    The Living Daylights [1987]
  • The casting of Frederick Warder and Glyn Baker as 004 and 002 was intentional, due to their resemblance to George Lazenby and Roger Moore, respectively. For the movie's opening scene, the writers wanted to toy with the audience's expectations of which of the 00 agents was Bond.
    Live and Let Die [1973]
  • Roger Moore was 45 when he made his debut as 007, making him the oldest actor to do so. The youngest was George Lazenby who made his debut at age 29.
    The Spy Who Loved Me [1977]
  • The famous Union Jack parachute ski jump stunt during the film's pre-title sequence was originally suggested by star George Lazenby to be used in On Her Majesty's Secret Service, but the necessary equipment to film it was not available then. The Bond producers thought it was a great idea, and later added the Union Jack to the parachute and used it in this movie.
    For Your Eyes Only [1981]
  • Julian Glover, who played Aristotle Kristatos, was a candidate to play James Bond in the sixties and was on the short-list as a possible replacement for Sean Connery and George Lazenby prior to the role going to Roger Moore.
    On Her Majesty's Secret Service [1969]
  • The producers originally intended to explain the change of lead actors in the film by saying that Bond had undergone plastic surgery because his "old" face was now too well known by foreign spies and terrorists for him to go undercover, but they then decided not to refer at all to the change, and thus hopefully minimize the public attention being paid to George Lazenby replacing Sean Connery. However, after the opening action sequence, right before the titles, Bond states "This never happened to the other fellow," an intentionally comedic reference to the change in actors.
  • As of 2009, George Lazenby is the youngest actor to portray 007 at age 29 during filming. The rest of the actors and their ages, in no particular order: Sean Connery - 31, Roger Moore - 45, Timothy Dalton - 40, Pierce Brosnan - 41 and Daniel Craig - 38.
