Anthony (Tony) Waye is Pinewood through and through. He is married to Patricia, the daughter of a fellow Pinwood crew-member. He has been involvled in some capacity or another, from runner to Executive Producer in many of Pinewood's most prestigious productions in a career at Pinewood spanning over 50 years. Tony is probably best known for his involvement in the Bond franchise since Octopussy, until his recent retirement. He was the Assistant Director on that movie and then bwcame Production Manager and eventually Executive Producer for the "Bonds* bringing all his exoperience and organisational skills to these roles. He was also involved, as Assistant Director or Producer or other capacity (sometimes uncredited) for many other films - the list is almost endless but includes "Caary On's", Doctor in the House's" (and spin-offs), Elephant Man, Star Wars Episode IV, the early Dr Who movies and cult horror movies such as Asylum. He has been involeved as at least Assistant Director level in over 70 of Pinewood's films since the early 1960s and many more before that time with less important jobs to do. Tony retired a couple of years ago but is still involved (he is now in his mid-seventies) in the movie business on a consultant. He is the link Marlene Dietrich (one of his earliest jobs was to get her on set) and Timothy Dalton and just about evrybody in between and he is an unsung hero of the UK movie industry.
