I work in a school. One of the parents of a child in our nursery worked in the film industry. Her father was film producer Elliott Kastner and her half-brother is actor Cary Elwes. Her father was based at Pinewood and she herself had worked on a number of Bond Movies. She knew of my interest and offered to take me and a friend on a tour of the studios.
We met during February half term. Saw the sets (both internal and external) for many of the early Bond sets including the garden area used in ‘From Russia with Love’ where Rosa Klebb meets Donald Grant (Robert Shaw), the Bond stage itself and many other areas. They were also building the set of Godric’s Hollow for the last two Harry Potter films.
All in all a great day and very very interesting!!
