Yo-Yo Thug (William Derrick)
Yo-Yo Thug played by William Derrick
Born in Bombay, India on 16th January 1946
Starred In Octopussy (1983)
Before travelling to the Floating Palace, Vijay tragically becomes a victim of the Yo-Yo saw. Disguised as reeds on the surface of the water, the Yo-Yo thug leads a small stealthy assault onto Octopussy's Floating Palace. Seconds before the thug slices Bond in two, a drop of water falls onto his face from the saw, giving him crucial seconds to move out the way just in time. Bond deals with various thugs in the fight that follows, leading to both Bond and the Yo-Yo thug falling out of the window, where a crocodile eats the thug.
Kamal Khan employs the silent Yo-Yo thug for his expert skills in managing the razor-edged Yo-Yo saw. Most effective when the victim is held into position, or used as a surprise attack, the saw loses some of its effectiveness when the Yo-Yo thug enters hand-to-hand combat with Bond. §
