Like all James Bond fans, we took the news of the delayed release of No Time To Die rather hard. Of course we were as eager as anyone to pick up the plotline five years after Blofeld’s capture and Bond’s retirement from MI6, but we were even more excited to see the wardrobe we had worked on for Ralph Fiennes’s character M’s return to the big screen.
In the past twelve months, our bespoke department has been working with Mr Fiennes back-to-back on the productions he has been involved in. From The King’s Man, the WWI set prequel to Kingsman, the above mentioned Bond chapter No Time To Die and The Forgiven, a project with Jessica Chastain that had just started shooting in Morocco. Our working relationship with Mr Fiennes goes back over 15 years, to his debut appearance as Lord Voldemort in Harry Potter And The Goblet Of Fire.
With the worldwide halt to these, and most other movie release dates this summer, we thought we thought it might be an apt time to consider a handful of some of the barnstorming roles we have had the pleasure of seeing Mr Fiennes perform in.
