Daniel Craig has passed away after saying an emotional goodbye to the cast and crew of James Bond and No Time to Die.
After completing his final mission as a British spy, Daniels took a moment to thank the people who worked with him in five of his films as Bond.
Standing in a black dinner suit synonymous with the character, Daniel said: “A lot of people here worked with me on five pictures, and I know everything I think about these movies or all of them. Many things have been said about him.
“I’ve loved every single second of these movies, and this one in particular, because I wake up every morning and I get to work with you guys.”
Before the feeling got too much for him, Daniel said it “has been one of the greatest honors of my life.”
He ended his speech with thunderous applause, to which the audience also responded.
Daniels famously said that he’s slicing his wrists instead of playing Bond again after the last flick, Spector, and the toll it has taken on his body.
However, her attitude during the release of No Time to Die has only seen her speak lovingly about the role.
On being persuaded to reprise the role for No Time to Die, which would make him the longest-serving actor as 007, Daniel said: “I don’t want to go on about how tough Spector is. But I needed a break. I had to switch off.
“I actually felt psychologically very old at the end of that movie. Barbara strikes a hard bargain. I don’t think I was ever going to get away with going after Spector.”
He said: “My tenure is what it is, but it’s only one part of something bigger. I look back on films and I’m incredibly proud of each and every one of them. It’s not easy to leave this role.” .
“I can be as brazen and cynical about it as I like, but it’s still hard to walk away from it. And it’s not about money and fame.
“I’m incredibly lucky to be able to do that. But I think it’s okay now [to leave the role], and that’s because we did this film.”
