A scene from the James Bond film “Skyfall” which indicated that the 007 Agent had a secret gay experience was almost cut, producers have revealed.
This scene involves Daniel Craig’s Bond and villain Raoul Silva, also played by Javier Bardhem.
In this scene, Silva while caressing Bond can be heard saying, “You’re trying to remember your training now. What’s the regulation to cover this? Well, first time for everything I guess”.
Bond is also bound to a chair in this scene. He replies, “What makes you think this is my first time?”.
Speaking about the scene, longtime Bond producer Barbara Brocolli revealed that they were told to cut the scene from the film.
“I remember we were told to cut that line by the studio”, Brocolli said on the documentary Being James Bond.
Brocolli also added that this decision was vidicated at the film’s permiere.
“That line, just the whole place rocked it then… I remember looking at the studio executive and going, ‘See, told you,’”, she said.
