The Living Daylights (1987) Tidbits

  • Joe Don Baker would go on to play an American spy similar to Felix Leiter in the Brosnan-era films.
  • The other two 00 agents featured in the film (the ones the audience sees before Dalton) were cast because of their resemblance to George Lazenby and Roger Moore.
  • During the filming of the final scene, the Moroccan airfield (doubling as Afghanistan) was left open to civilian flights.
  • Maryam d’Abo got the part due to an audition she did with Pierce Brosnan.
  • The movie was originally written for Roger Moore and had to be changed to reflect the new Bond.
  • In the pre-title sequence, 002, and 004 may look familiar, one of whom bore a resemblance to Roger Moore, the other was an uncanny George Lazenby, the writers wanted to keep the audience guessing who the new 007 would be.
