It seems that lady luck is taken with 007 -- le Chiffre has hit a losing streak. But some people just refuse to play by the rules, and Bonds attraction to a beautiful female agent leads him to disaster and an unexpected savior...
Casino Royale (2006) Scene: 'Le Chiffre'
Le Chiffre (Mads Mikkelsen)
Believed by MI6 to have been born on November 16, in Albania , Le Chiffre is banker to the world's terrorist organizations. A mathematical genius and chess prodigy, his abilities enable him to earn large sums of money in games of chance and probability. Consequently, Le Chiffre has a penchant for poker, even though he has what at first appears to be an obvious tell — it is later implied that this is a trick to fool James Bond into becoming overconfident. He suffers from haemolacria, which causes him to weep blood out of his left eye, and uses a platinum-plated benzedrine inhaler. He was suspected of being involved in the funding of the September 11th attacks, as well as profiting from it.
