James Bond actor Daniel Craig had one request for producers before signing on as 007

Daniel Craig explained what made him play James Bond ahead of his final stint as the British spy.

The actor signed on to play 007 in the 2006 film Casino Royale and played him four more times until No time to diewhich was released a year ago this month.

Talking about the movie official podcast in six partsthe actor said he only accepted the role after making sure he could do something different from what had come before with actors, including Sean ConneryRoger Moore and Pierce Brosnan.

“The deal was, I said [producers] Barbara [Broccoli] and Michael [G Wilson] Before I read the script – it’s so arrogant, it’s ridiculous – I just said I can’t get an impression of anything that’s come before,” Craig said.

He continued: “I can’t recreate what you’ve done before. But it’s brilliant, I can’t do that. I can’t come in and try to be something that people expect.”

Craig told them, “I can come in and try to reinvent it because it’s fascinating and interesting to me.”

Fortunately, the producers had exactly the same idea in mind.

“Instead of them saying, ‘Thank you, goodbye,’ they said, ‘Yes, that’s exactly what we want you to do.'”

Earlier this week, Bond producer Michael G Wilson effectively revealed the age of the actor who will next play Bond ruling out two previous favourites.
