When you talk about the famous gadget expert Q in previous James Bond movies, it's two older actors Desmond Llewelyn and John Cleese. However, the upcoming 23rd James Bond adventure, SKYFALL, will features a younger version of Q for the very first time. And that latest honor goes to 31-year-old Ben Whishaw (PERFUME: THE STORY OF A MURDERER). In fact, he's even younger than James Bond himself, with Daniel Craig 12 years his senior!
Ben Whishaw is certainly an unexpected but refreshing choice for the role of Q. Both him and Daniel Craig used to act together before in 2004's gangster drama LAYER CAKE.
