Last week of the Bond month. Sad in a way, but hasn’t it been interesting and exciting! I could go on for another few weeks …. LOL
Anyway …. favourite Bond Villain or Villainesses.
“No Mr Bond, I want you to die.” German actor Gert Froebe comes to mind. He was great and eerie. Then there was “Le Chiffre”, Danish actor Mads Mikkelson was one of my favourite as well. Javier Bardem was absolutely fabulous as villain in “Skyfall” and I’m not surprised he received both a BAFTA and a SAG nomination for Best Supporting Actor. Nick Nack was already mentioned earlier this week, but there was also the guy with the metal teeth. He scared me when I was a kid! Or do you remember Rosa Klebb with a poison tipped steel shoe knife and a whip?
But …. I don’t think anybody can go past Ernst Stavro Blofeld as the ultimate villain. He had the most appearances of all the villains in the series, and I wonder whether Jeff, our Thursday Hound, can tell us a bit about his presence in the books. Apparently was in a few novels.
Last, but not least … the worst villain for me, and without a doubt, was Jonathan Pryce as Elliot Carver. He just couldn’t connect with his character and it turned out to be a lousy performance.
