Craig, with beard, starts filming Skyfall

U.K.’s Daily Mail newspaper has a story about the initial filming of Skyfall, the 23rd James Bond movie.

The story is heavy on photos and light on text. But Craig still has the beard he had during the Skyfall news conference. That would appear to confirm an Oct. 21 story in The Sun, another U.K. paper that Craig would be seen with a beard for part of the movie.

Skyfall cast discusses new Bond movie in ITV video

After the Nov. 3 Skyfall news conference, members of the cast gave brief interviews to ITV. The clip runs 4:39:

Among the highlights:

Judi Dench: “Nobody was allowed to say anything. It’s always like that…We do this great big news conference and body can say anything.”

Daniel Craig: “I didn’t doubt we’d get one made….We carried on as normal.” Based on the question, he was referring to Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer’s financial troubles, which included a short stay in bankruptcy court. “If it had went, I would have been sad.”

Naomie Harris: “It’s been over three months now” that she’s had to stay quiet about getting the Skyfall role. “It’s been an amazingly long time to keep quiet about something.” Her Agent Eve character thinks she is Bond’s equal. “But she isn’t really Bond’s equivalent, she’s much more his kind of junior.”

Berenice Marlohe and Javier Bardem also appear in the video.
