Rami Malek, who stars as the villain in the new Bond film opposite Daniel Craig, told Stephen Colbert that he and Craig had an exciting moment on set.
Said Malek: “We had this scene that was a very complicated scene and we were rehearsing for it with our terrific director, Cary Fukunaga. And, we were sitting at a table over hours just batting about ideas back and forth. And we finally cracked this really challenging scene. And he grabbed me, picked me up — and I can’t tell if I initiated the next moment, if it was him or I — but, a kiss transpired between the two of us. And I’m gonna say that Daniel initiated it and I was very taken aback.”
“Was it welcome?” asked Colbert.
“Yes very much so,” replied Malek. “I took a moment, caught my breath, and I looked out and said, ‘So, does this make me a Bond Girl?’”
