When you’re a great actor, you can’t accept everything. And Tomer Sisley has proven it in the past. In fact, the actor “Largo Winch” or the hit series of TF1, “Balthazar”was the guest of Anne-Elisabeth Lemoine in “C to You” on France 5. The journalist took advantage of his visit to ask him a question that had been on his mind for a while. Aware that the companion of Sandra Zeitoun has refused a role in a huge franchise, the presenter could not help but want to know more.
“I heard you refused to shoot in a James Bond? Skyfall?”she asked dumbfounded. “Yeah…”, admitted Tomer Sisley with a jaded air. What arouse even more the astonishment of his counterpart: “But you have to explain me there! Did you dislocate your shoulder or not?”. But no injury prevented the 48-year-old comedian. “No, I’ll tell you. In terms of career it was definitely a mistake. But the role they offered me was the role of a brawler in fact. With James Bond. The sequence was 20 minutes long and we found him after another fight and he ended up being killed”he revealed.

According to him, there was “Not a sentence”. There wasn’t a line. Typically, a stuntman could have done it, it wouldn’t have changed anything. And then, I’m not a stuntman in fact, I’m an actor!”he continues to justify himself before concluding: “I prefer to have three sentences in a good film, rather than 20 minutes in a stunt. It’s funny but it’s not my job not what I fight for”.

In an interview given to Cine TV Revuethe companion of Sandra Zeitoun has even revealed that his counterpart had had the chance to put his hand on his private parts. “Let’s say, since I’m not 5 years old, he’s the only other male human who has put his hands on my testicles. That’s how close we are!”he had fun when he was asked about the relationship he has with the artist.
