64-year-old stuntman breaks James Bond record

275x250.jpg A 64-year-old stuntman has smashed a world record previously set during the filming of James Bond -- by driving through a breakaway glass structure.

Rocky Taylor jumped a spinning BMW at speed through a 19ft 69in by 13ft 12in sheet of breakaway glass at the O2 Area in Greenwich south London.

This broke the previous record which was set during the filming of Die Another Day when actor Pierce Brosnan drove an Aston Martin through a 8ft 3.5in by 5ft 4.5in glass panel in the Ice Palace scene.

The new record was attempted to help raise awareness for 'Remember A Charity In Your Will' and was the second Rocky has done this year having previously jumped 40ft from a burning building. As you do.

He went on to feature in every James Bond film up to Casino Royale as a stuntman, body double and actor.

Sean Connery has described Rocky as “without a doubt the complete professional in his chosen field”, whilst Roger Moore felt he is “one hundred percent professional and exceedingly brave'.
