Spectre Set Photos of Christoph Waltz‘s Character “Frank Oberhauser” Surface. Some determined photographer successfully found his way close enough to the set of the upcoming Sam Mendes directed Spectre (2015) – the fourth entry in Daniel Craig‘s ouevre of James Bond films – and sold them to England’s Daily Mail. I guess it’s not that hard provided filming took place in the middle of London.
The photos are of Christoph Waltz’s character, listed as “Franz Oberhauser” on IMDb, but visually, fairly directly presented as the iconic “Blofeld” character we all know and love. Blofeld is the head of Spectre, usually pets a cat, and has a scarred face and bald head. You’ve seen him in a few early Bond films, I’m sure (he’s in four of them: From Russia with Love, Thunderball, You Only Live Twice, On Her Majesty’s Secret Service and Diamonds Are Forever). It is all but confirmed that this is the character Waltz is playing, and, of course, neatly denied. This reminds of the latest Star Trek marketing in which cast and crew flatly denied that Benedict Cumberbatch was, indeed, playing Kahn.
The facial mapping seen in the photos below seem to indicate some post-production work regarding “Oberhauser’s” appearance. A scar, perhaps…? Seems likely.
