James Bond: No Time To Die director calls Sean Connery’s 007 ‘a rapist’ | Films | Entertainment


After a villain comes in and turns up the machine, nearly killing Bond, Fearing rushes in and thinks it is her fault.

She worries Bond will tell her boss: “I’d lose my job!”

To which Bond unforgivably says: “Well, I suppose my silence could have a price.”

As Fearing replies, “You don’t mean..? Oh no, no,” Connery’s character, still only dressed in a towel, smirks, “Oh yes,” and pushed her into the sauna.

Although it was clearly meant to play as flirtatious and coy in the 1960s, to modern eyes it looks rather more predatory and abusive. 

Fukunaga and Bond producer Barbara Broccoli both addressed the changes they have made to the character to a modern audience, with the help of writer and Fleabag creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge.
