Inspirations Behind Film's Favorite Characters

James Bond

Author Ian Flemming based his James Bond character on the one person he knew best: Himself. Flemming, who worked as a Naval Intelligence Officer during World War II, pulled from his own experiences as a spy to pen "Casino Royale" in 1952. The novel got the big-screen treatment in 2006 with Daniel Craig starring as 007. —XFINITY Entertainment Staff
