James Bond auditions: 007 casting director on failure of younger stars | Films | Entertainment


Speaking with Radio Times, Debbie McWilliams, who has been Casting Director on the 007 franchise since 1981’s For Your Eyes Only, took her mind back to Casino Royale.

She said: “When we started, it was a slightly different feel. We did look at a lot of younger actors. and I just don’t think they had the gravitas, they didn’t have the experience, they didn’t have the mental capacity to take it on, because it’s not just the part they’re taking on, it’s a massive responsibility. So we kind of scrubbed that idea and went back to the drawing board and started again.” This isn’t too surprising given what Wilson has said about casting the new 007.
