“Quantum of Solace” star Daniel Craig revealed that it was a former 007, Pierce Brosnan, who convinced him to take on the role of James Bond.
David Craig revealed: “I sat next to him [Brosnan] at the BAFTAsâ€¦after dinner, after having enough to drink, I just went over [to him] and said, â€˜Look, itâ€™s not on the cards. It might be on the cards. If it were to be on the cards, what should I do?â€™ And he said, ‘Go for it. Just go for it. Youâ€™ve got to have a go at this.'”
When asked who is his favorite Bond, Daniel Craig’s nod went to a Scot. “Sean Connery without a doubt. Nothing against Pierce and everyone else.”
He revealed that his favorite Bond movie is “From Russia with Love,” saying: The best bad guy. You felt like Bond was in danger.â€
When a question of marriage came up, Daniel Craig replied: â€œWhy should it hurt the Bond image? It wouldnâ€™t. I donâ€™t think. And whether Iâ€™m going to get married, thatâ€™s between me and the person Iâ€™m going to get married to.â€
