Ben Whishaw revealed that he believes his tenure as Q in the James Bond film series might be over after No Time to Die.
One of the many staples of the James Bond franchise since the beginning has been creative gadgets for 007 to use, provided by the Quartermaster of the British Secret Service’s research and development division. While the Quartermaster, most commonly referred to as Q, has been featured in nearly every James Bond film since Dr. No, the iconic character was absent from the first two installments of Daniel Craig’s 007 series.
Fortunately, Q returned to the James Bond franchise in Daniel Craig’s Skyfall with Ben Whishaw as the newest incarnation of the character. Now, Ben Wishaw will reprise his role as Q for the third time in No Time to Die, Daniel Craig’s final outing as James Bond. However, Ben Whishaw indicated that No Time To Die might also mark his final appearance in the James Bond film series during an interview with Kevin Smith for IMDB:
“Oh, I think I’m done now. I think… I’ve done the three that I was contracted to do. I’ve done that. So, I think that might be it for me.”
While Ben Whishaw’s time as Q might be coming to an end with No Time to Die, the actor did reflect on how excited people were when he initially cast as the iconic James Bond character. “People really dig it. People get very excited by it,” Ben Whishaw said after Smith asked about people’s response to his casting.
