Think of the most memorable villain out of all the James Bond movies and Jaws must surely come top of your list.

Actor Richard Kiel who at 7ft 2inches is one of the tallest men in showbiz memorably played the character in two Bond movies in the 1970s - The Spy Who Loved Me and Moonraker.

It seemed nothing could stop the invincible Jaws whether he was electrocuted or fell out of an aeroplane without a parachute.

He was also something of a modern-day vampire as his chosen method of dispatching his victims was a swift bite to the neck with his metal teeth!

Thankfully there was little neck-biting going on when Richard visited Swindon on Thursday 27th November to meet fans and sign autographs at memorabilia store Infinitely Better.

We spoke to Richard about his appearances in the Bond movies, where those teeth ended up, what it was like to work with Roger Moore and whether Jaws might return to menace Pierce Brosnan in an upcoming James Bond film. You can listen in streaming Real Audio by clicking the link below
