Help

Actress Dame Judi Dench has revealed she will return to play head of MI6, M, in the new James Bond film, which will see Daniel Craig play the role of the British spy for a third time.

Dame Judi also advised Colin Firth and Geoffrey Rush, Oscar-nominated for their roles in The King's Speech, that the best way to get through the six-hour ceremony was to "keep nudging people".

After severe delays amid uncertainty over film studio MGM's future, the 23rd Bond film, directed by Sam Mendes, is set to be released in November 2012.
