Samantha's Sex Scene Ban
PRETTY 007 star Samantha Bond has banned her children from watching
her TV roles - because they involve too much sex or violence.
The actress, who plays Miss Moneypenny in the Bond movies, says
hardly any of her TV roles are suitable viewing for Mollie, 12 and
She said: "I'm either involved in sex scenes or being murdered
or crying all the time. I don't want them to see dead bodies and
on top of that thrillers wind you up emotionally."
But Samantha, 41, allows them to watch Bond films, including Die
Another Day in which Moneypenny has her first snog with 007, played
by Pierce Brosnan.
She said the 007 films were "family viewing" and added:
"It makes the kids popular in the playground and it is one
of the few things they know they can watch!"
But the children will NOT be able to watch Mum when she stars in
Donovan, a two-part thriller on ITV1 on Jan 5 and 6
