Their first encounter

Posted 20.06.2020

“He’s on our records. A professional killer.” Bond’s first encounter with the giant Jaws (Richard Kiel) in The Spy Who Loved Me (1977). Associate producer William Cartlidge said: “Richard’s teeth were overlapped by this set of special teeth so he couldn’t close his mouth properly. The result was we could never shoot on him for longer than 30 seconds after which he would start to gag.”
