There have been many celebrities sightings at the Sydney Royal Easter Show over the years, with stars like Nicole Kidman, Russell Crow and Elle MacPherson all making an appearance.
Ruffling feathers this year is a different kind of celebrity. He goes by the name of 007, and he’s a turkey.
According to owner Gary Norman, he’s always been something special and a little different. It all started when the curious bird started following him around the house, and eventually jumped into the car. It wasn’t long before the stage became his new home.
In the lead up to the Show, he’s been in demand. Channel 7’s Sunrise, The Sunday Telegraph – everyone wants a piece of 007.
With a personality like Jack Nicholson and the good looks of Tom Cruise, it’s no surprise the camera loves him.
While there is a Mrs 007, much like the real movie star and secret agent, one Bond girl just isn’t enough for the suave turkey. He even has a big red turkey by his side as personal security.
Life isn’t all about glamour and ladies for the big black bird though. He’s experienced a darker world too. 007 has even been to prison – but as the good guy.
As part of a prison program, he’s visited prisons all over NSW to cheer up and hang around inmates. He’s kept even the toughest criminals in line without a single shot being fired.
What a guy.
