George Lazenby, the actor who played the role of Agent 007 James Bond in the 1969 movie On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, met with fans after the projection of the documentary Becoming Bond at the Quebec City Film Festival.

When people mention James Bond they imagine the British Secret Service agent sharply dressed in a tuxedo and holding a martini, shaken not stirred. They don’t see the actor behind the character.
