Robinson in GOLDENEYE, TOMORROW NEVER DIES, THE WORLD IS NOT ENOUGH and DIE ANOTHER DAY

I have seen this gentleman, often playing James Bond when EON Productions tested potential Bond women for a film, at various Bond events like the film premieres of The World Is Not Enough (1999) and Die Another Day (2002) in London, and last at the launch of Bond in Motion at Beaulieu Motor Museum.

In my eyes, Colin is a wonderful actor with a great voice. Besides his role as MI6 staff member "Charles Robinson" in three of Pierce Brosnan's James Bond films (Tomorrow Never Dies, The World Is Not Enough and Die Another Day) Colin has appeared in more than 30 films and almost as many TV series.

A few years ago, I corresponded with Colin and his replies were always very flattering as he hoped to see me in the next Bond film! (Actually his encouraging words came true, I was an extra in Quantum of Solace and can be seen next to Daniel Craig as James Bond, small world.)

Many thanks Colin, you have certainly rocked my world! Keep up the great work, mon frere.
