Daniel Craig, the star actor of popular action movie, ‘James Bond’ has revealed that he nearly turned down the movie role when he was first presented the script.
Craig has revealed he didn’t want the coveted movie role after reading the script for Casino Royale.
Speaking to The Sun alongside producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G Wilson, he told the story of how he never intended to become Bond.
“Pierce [Brosnan] had done Remington Steele, Roger Moore had done The Saint — they had done these parts where people had gone, “That is James Bond.” ‘I had done weird arty movies.
It was a harder sell. And I didn’t really want to do it, because I thought I wouldn’t know what to do with it.’ The story was solid, the script was solid. So I changed my mind and accepted the role, He said.
Daniel, 53, is bowing out of the role after No Time To Die but has now admitted he nearly didn’t end up accepting the part he’s become so well-known for.
