Daniel Craig, 53, gave an emotional speech as he bid farewell to his role as James Bond, and the crew and cast members he got to know in a video posted on social media.
In the Twitter video recorded on the set of No Time To die, Craig showed his emotions to the team as he expressed his gratitude for everyone.
Looking suave in a tailored black suit and bow tie, Craig said: “A lot of people here worked on five pictures with me, and I know there’s a lot of things said about what I think about these films or all of those, whatever.”
Craig also said that what made working on the movies worth the effort to him was the chance to see his friends and collaborators.
“I’ve loved every single second of these movies, and especially this one, because I’ve gotten up every morning and I’ve had the chance to work with you guys,” he said.
The actor finished his emotional speech by saying that being able to work with the same crew members “has been one of the greatest honors of my life.”
In an interview with GQ, Craig recalled that on the last day of shooting, he became overwhelmed by emotions and was left unable to properly express his gratitude to the cast and crew.
“Typically I’m not an emotional person on sets, but there was sort of a pulsing feeling to that day. I had a whole thing kind of put together in my head that I wanted to say. I couldn’t get it out,” he said.
Craig also talked about the delay between Spectre and No Time To Die, and said that he went through a period of self-reflection before signing on to No Time To Die.
“I was like, ‘Is this work really genuinely worth this, to go through this, this whole thing?’ And…I felt physically really low. So the prospect of doing another movie was just, like, off the cards. And that’s why it has been five years,” he expressed.
