What to expect: Actress Lea Seydoux teased that No Time To Die was going to show a new side to Bond after settling in with Dr Madeleine Swann after retiring from active service
She said: ‘I think it’s also because of Bond and we needed Madeline to tell the Bond story, I mean it was important to see Bond again in love because he had this relationship with Vespa but she betrayed him.
“ But this time, I think she’s real love in a way, I think it’s really the movie, it’s a love story, it’s a story in between, so it’s very unusual for a Bond film to see James Bond in love, right? And I think it’s quite modern in a way.
“ In this movie it’s even more psychological and emotional and I think it’s something that Daniel as James Bond created with this character.
“ He’s created a character that is more vulnerable and has flaws and I think that’s what we like as an audience and it’s true that James Bond is like a … it’s not a real world, right? But what we love is that in this world we can relate to the characters.
