Daniel Craig is coming off a record-setting opening of No Time to Die in the U.K. this past weekend, and about to find out how it does in the U.S. this weekend. The film, which has earned critical raves and stars Rami Malek, Lea Seydoux and Lashana Lynch, is his last role as 007.
He tells ET of playing Bond in five films: “I am very proud of what we have done. I am so lucky to have had this opportunity the last 16 years. What happens in the future, it just feels like it is going to take 15 years to unpack all of this, to figure out what what just happened. Sometimes it was a slog, it has gone like that snaps his fingers.”
Craig shares that he remembers being announced as the next Bond “like it was yesterday,” but still finds it “so impossible” to “put a kind of explanation” on the whole experience.
