George Lazenby at London Comic Con Spring on 2-3 March 2019


George Lazenbys - In 1968, after Sean Connery quit the role of James Bond, producer Albert R. Broccoli noticed Lazenby when getting their hair cut at the same barber. He later saw him in the Big Fry commercial and felt he could be a possible Bond, calling him in for a screen test. Lazenby dressed for the part by sporting several sartorial Bond elements such as a Rolex Submariner wristwatch and a Savile Row suit (ordered, but uncollected, by Connery). The position was consolidated when Lazenby accidentally punched Yuri Borienko, a professional wrestler who was acting as stuntman, in the face, impressing the producers who had been reluctant after finding out George had been a model. Director Peter Hunt later claimed that Lazenby won the role based on a screen-test fight scene, the strength of his interviews, fight skills and audition footage.

(FSWL founder Anders Frejdh has been George Lazenby's manager since 2013.)
