Daniel Craig will reportedly appear in character as James Bond during a pre-taped portion of the opening ceremony for the Olympics. The opening ceremony is being directed by Danny Boyle and will reportedly include a section in which 007 is seen in Buckingham Palace.
Boyle and Craig reportedly had unprecedented access to private rooms at the palace and the skit was fully sanctioned by the Queen.
"It's a huge coup for BBC producers and Danny to be allowed into the palace and have the Queen involved. They wanted the most iconic British film character inside the building most associated with London and with the monarch - and they got it," a source close to the project told The Sun.
"It will be a magical scene for all watching at home and inside the stadium on 27 July. Working out the logistics of filming has taken months and hasn't been easy - but it will be worth it in the end."
