Connery plays Queen in Bond sketch

Did you see the madcap skydiving scene with Daniel Craig (as James Bond) and the Queen (as herself!) in last Friday’s opening Olympic ceremony?

Well, I loved the concept – and the fact that the Queen was happy to play along! Of course, it occurred to me that the Queen didn’t throw herself out of the plane and parachute into Olympic Park and that they did employ a stunt double. But for some reason, I wasn’t even thinking that it would be a guy in the fascinator and pearls, nor would I have imagined that he would have the last name of Connery (yes, as in Sean Connery!). Read more about him!

Thanks to my friend and fellow blogger Layla of TheSmudge.com, who gave me this story tip.  Here’s her take on it!
