Daniel Craig bid farewell to the role of James Bond in a new video from the set of No Time to Die, the actor’s final 007 movie. The clip of Craig is taken from the documentary Being James Bond, a new Apple TV production that explores Craig’s time in the role, from 2006’s Casino Royale to his swan song this year.
The video reveals that Craig’s final scene as Bond involved the actor running down an alleyway out of frame. Craig gives an emotional speech to the No Time to Die crew, expressing his gratitude towards their dedication throughout the production.

“A lot of people here worked on five pictures with me. I know there’s a lot of things said about what I think about these films and all of those… whatever,” Craig said. “But I’ve loved every single second of these movies, and especially this one, because I’ve got up every morning and I’ve had the chance to work with you guys. That has been one of the greatest honors of my life.”
Being James Bond will be available to rent through the Apple TV app through October 7. The documentary tracks Craig through his 15-year tenure as 007, including reflections on Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace, Skyfall, Spectre, and No Time to Die.
