Former James Bond actor Sir Roger Moore expects evil genius Ernst Stavro Blofeld to appear in the new movie 'SPECTRE'

Sam, 49, introduced Christoph by saying: "The most important member [of the visiting cast], I think - an extraordinary actor - I could not be happier than to be having in this cast and joining us on this journey, Mr Christoph Waltz."
