Halle Berry has revealed that she almost died while filming a scene from ‘Die Another Day’, in which she played Jinx Johnson, one of the most memorable Bond girls in the 007 saga. It was her co-star, Pierce Brosnan, the one who saved his life, since he almost died of drowning.
The Oscar-winning actress has told how this scare happened, which ended up being one of the anecdotes from the shooting of the film, in an interview on the Jimmy Fallon program. The scene in question was heavily erotic. However, what started with sensual movements ended with Berry about to suffocate.
“Everything was supposed to be sensual and I tried to seduce [James Bond] by eating a fig, but I started choking,” the performer began, which also revealed how Brosnan saved her life. “He got up and did the Heimlich maneuver for me. You should have seen it, it was nothing sensual,” he explained.
This moment united both actors, who had a good relationship after the filming of the tape. “James Bond knew how to do the Heimlich maneuver and he was there for me. He will always be one of my favorite people in the world,” the actress said of Brosnan.
James Bond fans are anxiously awaiting the premiere of ‘No Time To Die’, the parting of Daniel Craig in the role of the British spy. Directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga and with Ana de Armas as the new Bond girl, the film is scheduled to premiere on November 12 … if the coronavirus allows it.
