No time to die the star and former James Bond actor Daniel Craig shed new light the controversial remarks he made a few years ago about the role. Craig, who debuted as 007 in Casino Royale in 2006, ended his career as the character with the release of No time to die. This is the 25th installment of the James Bond movie series and the fifth movie for Craig.
In 2015, Daniel Craig just wrapped up his recordings on his fourth Bond Movie, Ghost, when he did a round of interviews to promote the sequel. It was a very difficult recording for the actor, who even broke his leg during the production. Needless to say, he may not have been in the best of moods when he told Time Out magazine that he would rather ‘cut my wrists’ than do another James Bond film at that time.
Since then Daniel Craig signed up for No time to die, many fans regularly looked back at the comment and asked why the actor would do another movie after saying something like that. Recently, a video from Craig’s set that says he ‘loved every second’ to play the role through all five movies, many people again referred to the 2015 interview. In a new interview with Radio Times, Craig said he regrets what he did because it made him sound ‘ungrateful’. In fact, the actor felt burnt out after a rough shooting and did not intend to take the remark so seriously.
“To be honest, I thought, ‘I do not know if I can do another one of these. ‘I’m done filming Ghost with a broken leg. To your point about being in my fifties now, I thought, ‘Do I have this in me? Do I want to go through it all? “I needed a break. A little more skill in answering might have been better. I made a joke, but it was ungrateful. “
There was no reluctance towards Daniel Craig of the James Bond team. Producer Barbara Broccoli defends the actor by taking the blame on the situation, declaring that they should not have asked Craig to press too soon after the production. The manufacturer said: “It was our fault. It was a long shooting. He sustained an injury. Then we said, ‘Why don’t you just do a week of press at the end of the shooting?'”
The future of James Bond is unclear afterwards No time to die, but Daniel Craig also shared his thoughts on whether the character should be gender reassigned. He also told Radio Times that he would rather see a part as good as James Bond, but for a woman. This point can be indicated in No time to die, in which rumors are circulating that Lashana Lynch will become the next 007 after Craig’s James Bond retires. This is the end of the road for Craig anyway.
No time to die will appear in British theaters on 30 September, followed by a US edition on 8 October. Daniel Craig’s comments come from Radio Times.
