Unforgettable Supporting Character(Desmond Llewelyn )

(12 September 1914 – 19 December 1999)

Desmond Wilkinson Llewelyn was a Welsh actor, famous for playing Q in 17 of the James Bond films between 1963 and 1999.

Llewelyn was chosen for the role of Q because of his work with director Terence Young in the 1950 war film They Were Not Divided, in which he played a tank gunner. Beginning with From Russia with Love in 1963, Llewelyn appeared as Q, the quartermaster of the MI6 gadget lab (also known as Q branch), in almost every Bond film until his death, only missing appearances in Live and Let Die in 1973, and Never Say Never Again, the latter of which is not part of the official James Bond film series.
