Life imitates art? Daniel Craig’s bodyguard saved a former Bond girl from a knife-wielding fan in Italy.
Muscular Mino Zangrando stepped in to protect the Italian actress while he was looking after her on a trip to Venice.
The crazed fan ran towards Monica – who played an enemy agent’s widow in the last 007 film Spectre – holding a blade and a love letter he said he wanted to read her.
Mino, 49, who is based in the Italian city fabled for its canals, said: “I had to act fast and drag him away. He got over-excited.
“In that moment you never know what is going to happen, it can be dangerous.”
The scare came just weeks after a similar incident in which Mino intervened to protect Hollywood legend Clint Eastwood from a “madman” who threw himself into his arms.
As well as being a bodyguard Mino is a personal trainer and has regularly worked with Bond actor Craig.
Not a ton to say about this one other than congrats on a job well done. This certainly doesn’t hurt Mr. Zangrando’s resume as a bodyguard.
As an aside, can anyone think of a good knife scene in a Bond film. There is some knife use in Octopussy, along with the buzz-saw yo-yo thing which was pretty gnarly. But he is better known for his gun prowess.
