A bit of news from Cape Town

Post by Marisa » Fri Jun 08, 2007 11:10 pm

I found this bit of news on what Daniel has been doing while in Cape Town. I like the comment about Daniel. It looks like he's done filming there. I wonder where he is headed next?

Bond star films at royale mansion
June 8, 2007

By Murray Williams

The star of Casino Royale, Daniel Craig, arrived in the Cape three weeks ago and finished filming on Thursday.

He spent much of his time inside a 10-bedroomed mansion in Llandudno which has been at the centre of legal wrangling since it was built in 2000.

The house is owned by Johannesburg businessman Mel Cunningham and is being sold by Conrad Steinhobel of Lew Geffen Sothebys International Realty in Hout Bay for a staggering R48-million.

When it was built, neighbours and the city council agreed that Cunningham had "broken nearly every rule in the book", in the words of one resident. There were alleged violations of title deed and town planning and zoning restrictions.

It is a battle which continues on Friday and Cunningham admitted on Thursday he had still not been granted a completion certificate by the council - a full six years after he moved in
.

Cunningham has consistently been accused of using his lawyers to stymie any efforts to force him to comply with the law. On Thursday he dismissed his alleged transgressions as "minor stuff".

But his house is not only notorious, it's also famous.

Some years back, Cunningham hosted two super-famous house-shoppers: Elton John and David Beckham.

Of Craig, Cunningham said: "Ya, it was quite interesting. Nice chap, very humble.

"I thought he was one of the better Bonds, other than Sean Connery of course, because of my age."

Craig was working on the movie Flashbacks Of A Fool, being filmed locally by Moonlighting.

I agree with her there. That's all I would do. I can't imagine how one would even need to act attracted to him in a movie If Daniel looked me in the eye in person, I would melt into a tiny puddle of giddiness. I mean, even him looking at the camera in Infamous makes me topple over.
