French actor Michael Lonsdale who played the Bond villain Drax in Moonraker has passed away at age 89. He was excellent in Day of the Jackal, The Bride Wore Black and The Remains of the Day.
i didn't know that. must file that trivia away for later! lolMoonraker is one of the best Bonds for me, i think it's the space theme. The space shuttle launched first in this film, it didn't actually launch until 1981. Michael Lonsdale was inspired casting, so urbane. Every scene is memorable, meeting Bond, the sniper in the tree, gas masks in Venice, the space station. The 4k disc can't come soon enough for me.
