Daniel Craig and Othello in New York

What: From hero to villain: Daniel Craig is currently playing the infamous villain Iago in Shakespeare's Othello
Where: New York, USA
When: 15 January 2017

Daniel Craig looked a little flustered as he was snapped making a run for it through the streets of New York City on Saturday to get to the theatre in time.

His portrayal has been very well received by critics and theatre-goers alike; so not making it in time for the show would have left an unwanted blot on his copy book for the sell out Off-Broadway show.

007 Book location: The Duomo / Never Send Flowers (1993)

Bond book: Never Send Flowers (1993)
Place and location in the book: The Duomo, Milan, Italy
Actual place and location: 
The Duomo, (Duomo di Milano), Piazza del Duomo, Milan, Italy
What happens here in the book: 
 Bond and Fredericka von Grüsse are searching villain David Dragonpol
Visited by 007 Travelers: 2015

"They reached the Duomo at twelve minutes past four, when the light had begun to take on a wonderful filtered reddish glow. It was, they heard a passing guide remark, the best time to visit the Cathedral.
The Duomo, Milan's great cathedral, is one of the wonders of Europe. It dominates the city, colossal in size, yet somehow almost ethereal, with its statues, belfries, pinnacles and gables; a monster cake built in white marble to the glory of God, standing at the far end of an imposing esplanade.
Fredericka went up by the elevator, while Bond took the stairs. Both were conscious that Dragonpol, with ease, could be waiting for them, or even lurking on that hard spiral climb.
When Bond reached the top, he saw Fredericka viewing the exit points from the far side of the roof.
Above them towered the famous Tiburio, the central tower, dominated by the statue of the Blessed Virgin.
It was almost four-twenty-five and, following a quick conference, they spread out to right and left so that they both had clear views of the stairs and elevator cage: relatively safe in the knowledge that even Dragonpol could not look in two directions at once."

Roger Moore calls for UK ban on wild animal circuses

Sir Roger Moore has called for wild animal circuses to be banned from touring the UK.

The James Bond legend has written a letter on behalf of PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) urging British Prime Minister Theresa May to introduce legislation banning the shows to end the abuse and imprisonment of creatures such as elephants, tigers, lions and other mighty beasts.

The 89-year-old actor - who is a committed animal rights advocate, has promised the Conservative leader that if she does finally put an end to the shows then he will join her for a toast to the outlawing of the circuses with a couple of bottles of vintage champagne.
