MI6 Confidential #21: Octopussy - celebrating 30 years

22 July, 2013

Thirty years ago 007 roared onto our screens in Roger Moore’s sixth 007 adventure, Octopussy. Time has flown by since the release of this unsung hero of the Bond canon, and accordingly, we sought out dozens of cast and crew members to reflect on this intricate and undeniably exotic Bond classic.

This issue features in-depth, exclusive discussions with Octopussy's primary cast and crew – notably director John Glen, co-star Maud Adams, villain Kabir Bedi, and a crew roundtable that includes Peter Lamont, Arthur Wooster, and more! To top it off, we welcome contributions from Sir Roger Moore, Vijay Amritraj, Kristina Wayborn, and the wonderful supporting cast of Bond’s lucky 13th adventure.
