Having first starred as Scaramanga’s mistress Andrea Anders in 1974’s The Man with the Golden Gun, Maud Adams returned to the franchise to play the title Bond lady in 1983’s Octopussy reverse Roger Moore as soon as once more.

And as is common with 007 films, the 2 leads had a love scene to movie. Only this one took greater than the wind out of the James Bond star.

A veteran of seven Bond films, Sir Roger Moore would encourage his Bond lady co-stars to maintain their ft heat for the customarily chilly love scenes.

According to Daily Record, he stated: “Those love scenes were usually done when the studios were freezing cold.

“So you’d say to the leading lady, ‘Keep your socks on, darling.’ And socks in bed are never romantic.”

In his 2012 autobiography Bond on Bond, the previous 007 admitted: “There is certainly no romance in a love scene, save that for the dressing room, if you’re lucky. Far from being a romantic moment of intimacy, a film love scene is often witnessed by 50 or 60 crew members, many being hairy-a***d technicians in the rafters clenching fists and shouting, ‘Go on, Rog! Give her one for us!’

“It does rather put one off one’s stride. And if there’s mention on the call sheet of a love scene, or one of at least partial nudity, it always amazes me how the crew size swells.”

Upon his dying at 89 in 2017, Sir Roger’s Bond ladies paid tribute to the person they noticed as the final word gentleman, stuffed with wit and appeal. Of course, one in every of them was Adams, who recounted how her co-star wasn’t a fan of taking pictures the love scenes.

Adams stated on the time: “007 may have saved the world but it was Roger who saved the Bond franchise, giving it a sense of humour. Love scenes were never his favourite thing, so he’d always turn them into a joke. In Octopussy, I had a love scene where Roger spins me around.”

The Octopussy star added to Daily Mail: “Unfortunately my leg caught him in a delicate area. It floored him and stopped manufacturing till he recovered. Roger at all times appeared baffled by the eye from followers, however he underestimated his expertise.”
