Trivia that mentions this person:
You Only Live Twice [1967]
  • The fifth film in the official [James Bond] series and also was the fifth for Sean Connery as James Bond, Bernard Lee as M and Lois Maxwell as Miss Moneypenny. And it was the fourth for Desmond Llewelyn as Q.
    Skyfall [2012]
  • Judi Dench has more screen time in this film alone than Desmond Llewelyn had in his 17 films as Q, making her portrayal of M the most common character in the series after Bond himself.
    Licence to Kill [1989]
  • Of all the [Bond] films, this one has the largest role for Desmond Llewelyn as Q.
  • Throughout the series Q (Desmond Llewelyn) is constantly reprimanding Bond for damaging or losing his equipment. Here, as a touch of irony, after he uses his rake/radio, he blithely tosses it in the bushes and walks away.
    The Man with the Golden Gun [1974]
  • As a joke on Desmond Llewelyn, Roger Moore wrote fake dialogue for Q, and then gave it to the script girl to give to Llewelyn after he had spent a whole month learning his lines and was about to come on set.
