Bond boss pays PS19000 for a smooch from Craig, Grant and Coltrane!June 19th, 2008 - 12:23 pm ICT by ANI
New Delhi, June 19 (ANI): All it took for Daniel Craig, Hugh Grant and Robbie Coltrane to do their bit for charity was give Bond producer Barbara Broccoli a kiss.
The three actors raised 19,000 pounds at a charity for The National Film and Television School on Tuesday night by auctioning a kiss that was bought by Broccoli.
Other items that went under the hammer and raised a good amount of cash included the dinner jacket worn Craig wore in his debut Bond film ‘Casino Royale’, which sold for 9,500 pounds.
A signed proof of the J.K. Rowling’s ‘Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone’ also went on auction, fetching fetched 18,000 pounds, reveals China Daily.
Craig got the Harry Potter memorabilia after a heated bidding war with Grant.
It was not the only defeat of the night for Grant, for he also missed out on winning two walk-on roles in a Working Title movie.
The event, hosted by Jonathan Ross, was also attended by the likes of Rowan Atkinson, Anne Robison, Richard Curtis and Lord Richard Attenborough.
In total, it raised 400,000 pounds for the school, which was double of what was being expected. (ANI)
