Daniel Craig Interview
You seem to be in peak physical condition. 007 has always been robust but by no means a gymnast. Do you think there is now a conflict between the charm of the original decadent image of Bond and the peak-fitness athletic Bond who blatantly does not indulge in the lifestyle of the original character? (from Bozobonce)
Daniel Craig: Starting from Casino Royale at the beginning I wanted the man to look like he’d just stepped out of the armed forces, so he had to be fit. If you’re talking about the charm that came in with the early movies I’m not Sean Connery and I’m never going to copy anything anybody did. Give us some time and it won’t just be about the physicality, but for the moment that’s where we’ve gone and that’s where it’s exciting to go because we have better technology and better facilities to make those kind of movies. Certainly this one doesn’t stop [with the action] and carries on where the last one finished.
What is by far and away the single greatest perk of being Mr Bond? (from MaytchBomb)
Daniel Craig: There are many and I would be lying to you if I said there weren’t. I tend to look at it in this way. We had success with the last movie. I’m hoping that we’ll have some success with this movie, and it’s a very fickle business. So I genuinely try and enjoy as much of what happens to me in these as possible. If I could think of one thing, it would be going to Japan for the first time. I’d never been, to go and be invited to Japan and to be taken out and looked after by people … I would never get to do things like that under those circumstances. We went to the Sistine Chapel at eight o’clock in the morning, on a Sunday morning. We had thick, thick heads. We were really just hungover from hell, and the Pope had just left, it was empty and we got to stand in the Sistine Chapel and stare at the ceiling and have it explained to us by this wonderful, wonderful guide. And it was incredibly moving. There are moments like that we desperately try and take advantage of. Those are moments where you just suddenly go, okay, this is the reason we do this, cos this is what makes it very special. Plus a few clothes [laughs].
Over the years, we’ve seen Bond shag many beautiful birds along the way. Do you think Bond will ever shag a bloke? (from Paul1970)
Daniel Craig: This is that question that keeps eternally coming up. No. Kill him and then seduce him [laughs] but not seduce him. It’s never been on the agenda and we’ve never had a discussion about it. It’s not something that I desire or want. No.
