Ian Fleming reveals his thoughts on the creation of the James Bond character, his inspirations, and the ingredients to creating a good thriller, in this rare interview from Spyscape’s Debrief Series.

Speaking about 007’s character in the original novels, Fleming says: “My leading character, James Bond, I never intended him to be a hero. I intended him to be a sort of blunt instrument wielded by a government department, who would get into bizarre and fantastic situations and more or less shoot his way out of them.

DRIVEN: 007 x SPYSCAPE, the official James Bond exhibition in New York is now on at Spyscape.
