Starlog Archives: Desmond Llewelyn Questionaire
Desmond Llewelyn played the quartermaster of MI6 in 17 James Bond movies from 1963-1999. No other actor has appeared in more Bond movies. As Q, he provided gadgets to Sean Connery, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton and Pierce Brosnan. In the December 1996 issue of Starlog magazine, Llewelyn reflected on his career and acknowledged that he was nearing retirement. As it turns out, Llewelyn played Q for the rest of his life. He passed weeks after the release of his final Bond appearance in The World is Not Enough.
