Anyone knows who Robert Davi didn't get along with during the LTK filming?


At 22.25, "there was one actor I had a little altercation with...". 

I guess it wasn't a small thing if he had to mention it.

I totally forgot about that bit from the Wogan show. I was also wondering whom that could have been. I wish I could have made it to the revival screening of LTK during Bond's 50th anniversary. Davi was there for a Q & A afterwards. I could have asked.


I believe it safe to assume that the actor in question is not Dalton or Del Toro. There are stories how Dalton & Davi got on really well and would get drunk and recite Shakespeare to each other. At the revival screening, someone mentioned that Davi teased about the good times that were had in Mexico. Davi said something along the line like, "Three method actors (referring to Dalton, Del Toro, and himself) getting drunk in Mexico City...oh the adventures we had."


Maybe Davi had heat with Anthony Zerbe or Anthony Starke? I hope someone has some idea regarding the issues Davi had with another actor.

I'd guess Zerbe. His wanting a stunt man for the small fall he takes (a story JG relates) probably didn't endear him to the ballsier actors. Or maybe Armenderiz the Lesser?
