Casino Royale’s Collapsing Villa

007 tries to save Vesper Lynd

Bond fights to get to Vesper Lynd in the collapsing Venice building in Casino Royale. The sinking Venetian villa was filmed on this day in 2006 in Pinewood’s 800,000 gallon paddock tank. Director Martin Campbell said: “Water always dictates its own pace in terms of schedule. Patience is what it’s all about. The actors have to get themselves prepared, and you can only do so many takes because of the chlorine in their eyes.”
