A Fiennes time in the West End

WHERE: Odeon Leicester Square, followed by a bash at the Park Lane Hotel

HAIR APPARENT: The screening was held up by the late arrival of Fiennes, whose flight from Los Angeles was delayed. After a motorcycle police whisked Fiennes from Heathrow to the Odeon, Fiennes bounded to the stage and quipped: “I wanted them to drop me in by parachute, but I’m not blond” — referring to Daniel Craig‘s confirmation as the first fair-haired 007.
