Nice casting!!!

A promotion for Jo as she was in the film as one of the Piz Gloria girls.

Amusingly, in the book, one of the patrons of the mountaintop restaurant is Ursula Andress, the first Bond girl.

That sounds great! I'm sure the irony isn't lost on Joanna that she's now the head Bond girl, replacing Diana. Thanks for passing this along!

Have you seen Joanna's adverts for Sky On Demand? I'm rather fond of her version of Game Of Thrones. Smile

Joanna Lumley: No Room for Secrets 1/5
BBC Radio 4 Extra ... Monday 28th October 2013 - Friday 1st November 2013
2.45-3.00pm


Set your timers for Joanna reading from her autobiography ...
Set in the rooms in her house, the much-loved actress reads her autobiography, beginning with the early years in India (a background she shares with fellow Avenger and Bond girl Diana Rigg) and boarding school in England. First broadcast in 2004. Love Joanna's version of the Game of Thrones.

I saw a clip of the will.i.am special. Don't know if it'll come over here or not, but if it does I'll give it a look. I'm still not entirely certain why they chose to do it. Joanna and will.i.am don't come together naturally in my mind. Laughing

On Her Majesty’s Secret Service
Full-cast radio adaptation by Jarvis/Ayres productions for BBC Radio 4
BBC Radio 4 ... Saturday 3rd May 2014 ... 2.30-4.00pm


James Bond International Fan Club/Radio Times online
The BBC’s Publicity Department have now confirmed that the latest 007 radio adaptation, On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, with Toby Stephens once again playing James Bond, will be transmitted on Saturday, 3rd May in the UK.

Produced by Jarvis and Ayres Productions in collaboration with the BBC, the 90-minute play will air at 2.30pm on BBC Radio 4 on 3 May, 2014.

Stephens, who was, of course, the main villain Gustav Graves in EON’s fourth Pierce Brosnan Bond movie Die Another Day (2002), first played secret agent 007 in a BBC radio production of Dr. No back in 2008. After this was well received by critics, Stephens went on to star in two further Ian Fleming adaptations by the same production team, Goldfinger in 2010, and From Russia With Love in 2012, both broadcast on BBC Radio 4 in the UK.

Stephens will be facing up to Alfred Molina in OHMSS, the award-winning London-born theatre and film actor, who is based in the USA and starred in the critically acclaimed John Logan play Red on Broadway in 2010. Molina’s film roles have included The Da Vinci Code, Pink Panther 2, and Spider Man 2 (as Dr. Octopus).

And in some other fascinating news, it has now been revealed that, contrary to previous reports, Joanna Lumley will not be playing Bond’s future wife Tracy in the new radio play, but instead is Irma Bunt, Blofeld’s evil German assistant, who oversaw his ‘Angels of Death’ in the original Fleming story (and also in the EON movie, which starred George Lazenby as 007).

Ironically, Lumley’s first ‘breakthough’ film role of her career was her brief but important appearance as the ‘English girl’, one of Blofeld’s Angels of Death in the original EON film version of On Her Majesty’s Secret Service in 1969. Bunt in the 1969 movie was played by the German theatre and film star Ilse Steppat.

As far back as May, 2013, Lumley, speaking to a local Essex newspaper in the UK, the Echo, revealed that she was about to play Irma Bunt, but this was missed by most commentators (including us!). More recently, speaking to hungertv.com in October, 2013, Joanna confirmed that she had played Blofeld’s assistant, Bunt, ‘so that was the greatest fun’.

Other roles in the new adaptation of OHMSS include Janie Dee as Miss Moneypenny (who returns as M’s loyal secretary for the third time), Lucy Phelps as Sally, Clare Dunne as Violet, Joanne Cassidy as Ruby, and Katherine Masters as Anne.

Looking forward to this immensely.
James

Somehow he seems okay with it! Laughing

I'm looking forward to this as well. For some reason I thought it had already aired, and that I'd missed it. Thankfully I haven't! Very Happy
