    I believe Beverley Knight is going to play Emmeline Pankhurst.

    After googling to see who these women are, I also see this will be in a play. A musical at that.

    In any event, it is what Joey Tribbiani would call a moo point. Elba hasn't been contacted, and is unlikely to be given the role, on account of his age, principally.
    Would you prefer Superfly instead?

    Garlic chewing? I have no idea what this means, but Rigg is generally regarded as an accomplished actress that brings an understated warmth and charisma to her characters
    Why yes, I AM a Mark Goodson/Bill Toddman production.

    Riggs allegedly didn’t think much of Lazenby and supposedly had garlic before any scene where they needed to kiss

    I think that story is a bit exaggerated-while there were some problems on OHMSS's set, especially with Lazenby, Rigg was apparently joking.

    This rumor has been debunked. So this thread keeps going because...?

    Yes, as Knight of the Lake replied, I was referring to the story that Rigg hated Lazenby and ate garlic before her romantic scenes. I see, though, from ChrisIII that this apparently wasn’t serious from Rigg, so apologies for spreading fake news!

    EDIT: I’ve looked into it a bit further, and according to her 2011 interview with Mark Lawson for BBC4 she had chicken liver pate for lunch, which had some garlic in it (not intentionally) - which led to the whole kerfuffle about the garlic business. The 2011 interview is fairly interesting about OHMSS.

    Thread drift.
    Elba hasn't been mentioned in a while now.

    I think Elba would be great. I have watched almost all the 007 movies all the way back to the Sean Connery movies and I would watch a Bond movie with Elba.
