Queen Elizabeth II became an unofficial Bond girl over the weekend after parachuting out of a helicopter with Daniel Craig during the lavish opening ceremony of the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.
Well, not really. It was all a bit of movie trickery, courtesy of director Danny Boyle, who oversaw the Friday night spectacle. But the real-life queen did take part in a scene full of drama and action alongside Craig, who escorted her from Buckingham Palace in classic, tuxedo-clad style in character as James Bond. It was an unexpectedly sly side of the normally reserved royal, who celebrated her Diamond Jubilee last month to mark her 60 years on the throne. Queen Elizabeth II has been portrayed only a few times in major films, but they've been indelible. So start working on your curtsey 'cause here we go!
