Swede changes name to James Bond
Published: 5th April 2007 14:27 CET
James Bond is alive and well and living in the south east of Sweden. Or at
least his namesake is.
He may now officially refer himself as Nils Gunnar Bond James Schäfer. Or Bond,
James Bond for short.
Schäfer, Gunnar Schäfer has just been given the all clear from the tax board
to make some alterations to his name.
If ever Sweden was to have its own 007, Gunnar Schäfer has long seemed the most
In 1959 Schäfer's father, who had been a German secret service agent during the
Second World War, disappeared in mysterious circumstances.
"It was the time of the Cold War. He went away on holiday and we never
heard from him again. Perhaps somebody wanted him dead. I just don't know,"
Schäfer told The Local.
The loss of his father at a very young age is intimately linked to his life-long
interest in 007.
In 1965, the eight-year-old Schäfer settled down to watch 'Goldfinger' with his
older brother. The experience was to alter his young life.
"I began to compare Ian Fleming's life to that of my father. I read the
novels and found all the similarities.
"Like my father, Fleming had also been a secret agent. He became a sort of
mentor to me.
"'Goldfinger' helped me to get on with my life and it brought me closer to
my father," he said.
Gunnar Schäfer's fascination with all things Bond is evident in every aspect of
For example, his mobile phone number ends with the digits 007.
One of his cars, the original BMW used in 'Goldeneye', is registered 007 JB.
And just like Ian Fleming's Jamaican estate, Schäfer's house in Kalmar is
He also dresses like Bond. At least once a week he puts on his dinner jacket and
sits down to watch a 007 classic.
"Sometimes I'll drink a dry martini. But usually I pour myself a glass of
Bollinger champagne, which was Albert Broccoli's favourite drink and also
something Bond is quite fond of," said Schäfer.
When he's not being Bond, Gunnar Schäfer runs a car parts business in Nybro. It
was here that he first began displaying some of the memorabilia for the world's
first 007 museum.
"It was in 2002, when 'Die Another Day' was about to come out. I set aside
a small space in my shop".
The embryonic museum was later moved to a much larger premises. Spread over 350
square metres of exhibition space, the museum now houses a cinema, games
consoles and a casino, as well as an impressive array of 007 artifacts ranging
from cars to specially designed glasses.
But what about 007's famed collection of short-term girlfriends? Does Schäfer
share his hero's handy knack of proving irresistible to the opposite sex?
"Yes and no," he laughed.
"They are often very curious, even the ones who don't like 007.
"After they meet me and I tell them the story about my father they usually
end up liking Bond," he said.
Gunnar Schäfer celebrated his 50th birthday at the end of March. Visit his website
