It was an absolute pleasure to meet the legendary James Bond director Guy Hamilton for the first time during Autographica at Radisson Edwardian Hotel near Heathrow Airport in October 2005.

In my eyes, Guy is very much responsible for the continued success of the James Bond film series. I could tell after seeing him that he is a very gentle and respectable man, much to the delight of everyone who met him.

Another opportunity to meet this gentleman and active golf player was at the Vue Sur Bond event in Canadian Quebec City during a weekend in February 2006. During the dinner, Guy was joking with me how much he prefer Norwegians before Swedish people.

Over the years, me and Guy have built up quite a friendship and I consider him to be one of the nicest people around.

Guy Hamilton passed away on 20th April 2016, due to illness. Read our obituary of Guy.
