Ben Whishaw Cast as Youngest Q Ever in Next Bond Film SKYFALL
His role will be very different from previous Qs. He’ll be far more serious, as is the trend with the new films.They added:
Female fans will now have more than Daniel to gush over now Ben’s been cast as Q. He’ll be a big draw. It’s a bold decision as it means Q will be younger than Bond for the first time.However, Whishaw, who recently appeared in BBC drama The Hour is much younger than previous actors who played Q. As you know, Daniel Craig works with such greats as Albert Finney, Ralph Fiennes, Javier Bardem as a villain and Dame Judi Dench. The Bond girls are played by French actress Berenice Marlohe and Naomie Harris, who plays an agent called Eve. The Skyfall film will be shot in locations including London, Turkey and Scotland and is due to make its world premiere in October next year, before hitting North America in November of the same year.
