Daniel Craig Hopes James Bond Has ‘Changed A Lot’ While He’s Played Him

by nerdyminutes


The final James Bond film starring Daniel Craig as 007 is now showing in some regions, and Craig is reflecting on his time in the role.

No Time To Die represents the end of 15 years of Craig playing Bond, a journey that started with Casino Royale back in 2006. Speaking to GQ, Craig said he hopes Bond has “changed a lot” while he’s played the character, specifically noting his treatment of women.

“What I’ve always tried to do is never judge him. He’s flawed, and his attitude towards the world and towards women is questionable, and I think that’s interesting. The way we’ve tried to deal with it is to cast as many strong female characters as possible, and for him to go up against those people,” Craig said.

Craig commended Judi Dench’s performance as M, also saying that Bond’s relationship with her, “informed who he is, but also exposes him for what he is.”

The actor has also recently spoken out about the idea of casting a woman as the next Bond, saying, “Why should a woman play James Bond when there should be a part just as good as James Bond, but for a woman?” However, No Time to Die will star Lashana Lynch as a female 00 agent and we know the search for Craig’s replacement will begin next year.

In the full interview, Craig also talks about his favorite stunts as Bond and the worst injuries he sustained while filming the Bond films over the last decade and a half. Craig recently reminisced on the time he broke Dave Bautista’s nose on the set of Spectre.

In our No Time to Die review, we called Craig’s swansong ‘good’, saying, “while Skyfall would have been a better send-off for him, No Time to Die is nonetheless a showcase for a complex and first-in-class performance from the best James Bond we’ve ever had.”
