Whisper (Earl Jolly Brown)


Whisper is the name of a character in the James Bond film, Live and Let Die. The character has a very soft voice that sounds like he is whispering, hence earning himself the name. In the film he is played by Earl Jolly Brown.



Film biography

In the film adaptation of Live and Let Die, Whisper is an extremely soft-spoken, portly assassin employed by Kananga. The driver of the white pimpmobile, he is seen on a number of occasions throughout the film; when Bond travels to meet Felix Leiter in New York, when he pulls alongside Bond’s cab, he kills the driver by using a poison dart gun concealed in the side-mirror of the car. Bond’s final encounter with Whisper occurs at the end of the film in Kananga’s lair.


It is unclear as to whether Whisper, like so many henchmen, actually dies at the close of the movie. He is last seen being knocked into an air tight metal capsule just prior to the climatic fight between Bond and Kananga.

It is unknown what happens to him after Bond defeats Kananga.
