Des Bishop: My Dad Was Nearly James Bond

Before I was born, my father had another life as an actor with bit parts in 'Day of the Triffids' and 'Zulu'. His biggest claim to fame though was that he was close to getting the role of James Bond. George Lazenby got the part, and we never watched James Bond in our house as it reminded my father of his regrets about leaving that career behind to raise a family.
