Dubliner Andrew Scott landed the role of a lifetime in the new Bond flick Spectre but says he's ready for a holiday when filming wraps.

Scott has taken on the role of Denbigh - one of Bond's Whitehall bosses in the movie which is set for release in November.

Daniel Craig returns to his role as James Bond, while Lea Seydoux and Monica Bellucci play 007's leading ladies.

"We finish filming in about a month and we've been shooting since November, so it's a long shoot but it's been fantastic," Andrew told the Herald.

"I watched a few of the Bond films before we started filming as a sort of preparation.

"It was amazing going into a movie that has such an incredible tradition.

"I'm going on holidays once we wrap - I need a bit of a break," he added.

Meanwhile, it was reported this week that Adele would be making film history by becoming the first artist to ever record two consecutive Bond themes.

Theme

It's believed she has already recorded the theme to the new movie, which will follow her Oscar-winning song, Skyfall.

Scott (38) is known for his role as Moriarty in hit show Sherlock, which also stars Martin Freeman and Benedict Cumberbatch.

The popular BBC series is set to return for a one-off Victorian special airing later this year, but Scott says he would like to play a lighter character in the future.

"Before I did Moriarty, I felt like I had a villain in me because of the way I looked, but I had an innocent little Irish face and wasn't seen like that," he said.

"Now it's the opposite and I'm really looking to play a romantic character in something contemporary where I get to wear jeans."
