- Timothy Dalton was first considered for the role of James Bond in 1968, when producers were casting for On Her Majesty's Secret Service. He turned it down, feeling he was too young. He turned down the role again, for the same reasons, during casting calls for Diamonds Are Forever.
- Pierce Brosnan was originally offered the role for The Living Daylights, as his TV show Remington Steele had just been cancelled. However, the offer generated a lot of publicity for Pierce, and NBC brought the show back at the last minute. As Pierce was still under contract, he had to turn down the role.
- The "ghetto blaster" rocket launcher radio that Q fires in his laboratory was actually activated off-camera by Prince Charles, who was making a Royal visit to the set.
