Ideal Shape Video Profile: 007 Stuntman Ben Cooke

‘I’m a stuntman and I pretty much take care of Daniel [Craig],’ says Cooke in his introduction.

‘I start six to eight weeks before principal shooting. Gary [Powell—stunt coordinator] sort of tells us what he wants and we go away to prepare things and get Daniel in there working with the stunts.’

‘We want it to have a certain look and feel and we want it to be realistic, but someone who’s still obviously had the training as well. We weren’t afraid for Bond to get hit.’

‘[Craig’s] probably got about three to four doubles. There’s a few reasons why he has that number of doubles: there’s two units running, there’s people who have got better skills in different fields. You push the effects to the limits so you want to get the right person for the job.’
