Daniel Craig bonded with several Japanese fans along with model Hinano Yoshikawa at a pre-screening event at a Tokyo movie theater on Thursday night–reports the Mainichi Daily News.
Visiting the country for the first time in order to promote Casino Royale, Craig said: ‘It’s always been a dream of mine to come to Japan, to Tokyo, so I hope to see as much as I can over the next four days.’
When I was a boy (I dreamed of becoming Bond), but never as an adult. I’m afraid it was not an acting dream of mine,’ Craig said. ‘But when I was a child, I wanted to fly to the moon as well.’
Craig explained to the fans that the key thing about Casino Royale is ‘a very wonderful love story with me and Eva Green (Vesper Lynd). For me, the two things, having an action story and having a love story were the most fulfilling things.’
Casino Royale opens for general release in Japan on 1 December.
