Branson Fine With Cut Bond Scene
SIR RICHARD BRANSON doesn't care his cameo in the new JAMES BOND movie was cut - he was just happy to get the chance to hang out on set. Branson was handed a walk-on role in CASINO ROYALE after he helped to save movie dollars by sending a Virgin Atlantic plane to the Prague, Czech Republic set at the last minute. He played a plane passenger - but much of the scene ended up on the cutting room floor. But Branson enjoyed the experience. He says, "A cameo appearance by its very nature is extremely brief and that's exactly what I expected. "Most men dream of meeting a Bond girl, but - lucky sod that I am - I go to spend a few hours with one."
