Images shared on social media show the actor giving a poignant speech on the set of No time to die, which will be released later in September, which will be his last appearance as 007 before he bowed out after 15 years.
The clip is taken from the documentary Being James Bond, in which Craig reflects on his time by following in the footsteps of actors such as Sean Connery, Roger Moore and Pierce Brosnan.
“A lot of people here worked on five photos with me,” Craig says in the clip. “I know there is a lot being said about how I feel about these movies and everything… whatever, but I loved every second of these movies and especially this one, because I get up every second. mornings, and I’ve been fortunate enough to work with you guys. And that has been one of the greatest honors of my life. “
The documentary features never-before-seen archive footage from Craig’s first Bond film, Casino Royale in 2006, through No Time To Die, and Craig shares his personal memories in a conversation with producers Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli.
Broccoli says Craig took the character and the show “to such a … amazing place.” And so emotionally satisfying, “while Wilson says filming the final exit while Bond was” emotionally hard “on the star.
No Time To Die will finally hit theaters on September 30 after years of delay, first because of the departure of original director Danny Boyle then when the pandemic closed cinemas.
The final movie trailer, released earlier in September, shows Bond talking to Specter villain and foster brother Blofeld (Christoph Waltz), who tells 007 that ‘my enemy is your enemy’, before a photo of new villain Safin – played by Rami Malek.
Speculation is now rife as to who might succeed Bond, with Tom Hardy, Idris Elba, Tom Hiddleston, Luke Evans, James Norton and Rege-Jean Page among the names that have been rumored.
