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.

Daniel Craig shows up with beard for premier of Tintin

A few days ago, one U.K. newspaper, The Sun, said Daniel Craig was growing a beard for Bond 23. He did show up at the U.K. premier of The Adventures of Tintin sporting a beard, according to a report in another U.K. newspaper, the Daily Mail.

Filming on Bond 23 isn’t supposed to start until Nov. 7 (a date unconfirmed by Eon Productions, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer or Sony Corp.’s Columbia Pictures). So this can’t be considered conclusive evidence The Sun was correct.
