A brand new Casino Royale article has appeared online at News Of The World.
New James Bond star Daniel Craig speaks about getting physically prepared for the role, some of the negative press, working with Eva Green, his future as 007, and much more.
‘I wanted to look like Bond could kill somebody. I’m not trying to be extra tough, but I wanted to look physically big. I got a personal trainer. I wanted to bulk up quickly so I did a lot of weights and had a high-protein diet,’ says Craig.
And what about the action scenes? ‘…I had four stunt doubles and they were dealing with injuries all the time. All of it was very physically demanding. I could say now that I would go back and do it again, now that my body’s recovered.’
As to what the future holds for Craig as James Bond, he simply replied ‘I’ve signed up for two more, and then I can get on with my life!’ Needless to say, anything can happen this early on.
Craig explains how Bond is affected after meeting Vesper Lynd in the film: ‘He gets his heart broken because he gets double crossed. It creates this person who is no longer emotional, but is actually going to go out for revenge.’
Lastly, what films does he choose when asked his favourite of the series? ‘When I went to the cinema for the first time it was Roger Moore’s Live And Let Die, which was a fantastic movie. But Sean Connery defined the role and one of my favourite movies is From Russia With Love.
