Katie McGrath has revealed that her A Christmas Princess co-star Sir Roger Moore has a dirty sense of humour. Speaking to Digital Spy, the Merlin actress admitted that she was struck by how much Moore flirted with his wife Christina Tholstrup.
“He’s charming and suave but he’s got this dirty, dirty sense of humour. He’s so composed when he does it,” McGrath said of the former James Bond actor.
“He brought his wife to set and the two of them, they’ve been together for years, but they flirt like 15-year-olds. It’s so sweet to see, it’s so lovely. He doesn’t disappoint. You’re watching James Bond, he’s in a suit, and he just comes out with the twisted, dirty line.”
McGrath added that Moore has given up acting with a raised eyebrow, saying:
“I think he’s moved beyond that now. I think Roger Moore no longer needs to eyebrow act. I think he can just be Roger.”
Asked what makes her Christmas film stand out from the rest, McGrath replied:
“Ours is the only one that has James Bond, I reckon that’s probably why it stands out.”
