Three high school students in the southern province of Adana snuck onto the set of the upcoming James Bond film "Skyfall" and recorded footage of a fight scene being filmed there.
İbrahim Ali Özden, 17, and two friends wanted to witness shooting for “Skyfall” at Adana's train station but could not gain access due to tight security.
The trio avoided security guards by sneaking through alleys and climbed over a wire fence into the train station. There, they crawled under train cars and reached the repair depot, where they grabbed off-duty workers' overalls and helmets.
The teens, acting like repairmen, entered a passenger car and saw actors playing a fighting scene on top of another train car nearby. Özden started recording the scene with his cellular phone but was noticed by security personnel once he got out the car to get a closer look at the actors.
"The security personnel searched me once I was caught," Özden said. "But they could not find my cell phone because I hid it in my underwear. They made us take off the work overalls and sent us off. It was an unforgettable adventure for me."
Adana Municipality has granted the filmmakers permission to use large areas to shoot the film in order to increase the popularity of the city.
