Michael Gambon’s James Bond audition unveiled Sean Connery love scene bombshell

Sir Michael Gambon: Legendary actor dead aged 82

Sir Sean Connery became famous for playing James Bond during the 1960s and while many fans know he wore a wig, did you know about how he prepared for his 007 love scenes?

According to late Harry Potter star Sir Michael Gambon, who was once considered for Bond, it involved leather bags of ice.

During a throwback interview from over a decade ago, the Dumbledore actor shared how Bond producer Cubby Broccoli told him the behind-the-scenes secret.

Appearing on RTÉ, Gambon said: “Years ago when I was young and had hair and I was quite thin, George Lazenby played James Bond and it wasn’t very good.

“So Cubby Broccoli got 10 young stage actors, I was one of them, into an office in the West End and interviewed us.”

Gambon told the 007 producer: “I can’t play James Bond because I’m bald, I’ve got a double chin and I’ve got girl’s t**s.”

But Cubby replied: “Well so’s Sean Connery. So we put a wig on him and we put two leather bags on his chest before the take when you’re naked with the girls.

“They put two leather bags full of ice on your breasts and you go [makes breathing in sound].”

Cubby added: “And then the man comes in just before the action and takes the bags off.

“Then Sean Connery has a beautiful flat chest and he has false teeth and all this [referring to his wig]. So you could well do it.”

However, Gambon said: “But he didn’t offer it me!”
