Daniel Craig said “no” it is his problem who will be the next James Bond, during an awkward interview with an Australian reporter at the world premiere of No time to die.
On Tuesday night, while making an appearance at the premiere in London, the 53-year-old actor was asked if he would miss out on playing the MI6 intelligence officer.
“Sure, yeah,” Craig said. “I don’t know how much I’m going to miss this,” pointing to the red carpet event unfolding in the background.
“Maybe. We’ll see. I’ll think about it tomorrow,” he added.
Nine News European correspondent Brett McLeod asked 007 alumni if they would “make a Sean Connery” and reprise the role in the future, prompting a very blunt response from the star: “No, definitely not. “.
The reporter went on to ask Craig if he had “any preference” as to who should replace him as Bond, getting another blunt answer: “It’s not my problem.”
Craig joined a star-studded lineup in the glamorous night.
Guests who attended included Lashana Lynch, Léa Seydoux, director Cary Joji Fukunaga, Rami Malek, Ana de Armas, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, and Billie Eilish, among others.
Four members of the royal family – the Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William, the Duchess of Cornwall and Prince Charles – also walked the red carpet, along with producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G Wilson.
No time to die It will be released on September 30 in the United Kingdom and October 8 in the United States.
