    The Insider got an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at Quantum of Solace as the 22nd James Bond film continues production in Panama.

    Interviewer Lara Spencer got a chance to speak with Daniel Craig, thanking the star for allowing her to ‘be on the set at a very pivotal moment.’ Craig was taking a break from shooting a party sequence for the film which required over 700 extras.

    ‘He’s been hurt,’ Craig started off. ‘I mean, he’s been badly hurt. This organization that he’s been chasing after are responsible for the death of the woman he loves.’

    Craig also mentioned that the film has ‘the same, if not more’ action than 2006’s Casino Royale and that he was participating in as much as possible.

    ‘We get to go to places I’ve never been and it’s some of the best experiences in my life.’

    Viewers also get a sneak peak at one of the film’s sets which will require four ‘very long’ night shoots culminating in ‘one very pivotal scene.’

    The Insider also briefly spoke with Bond girls Gemma Arterton and Olga Kurylenko.

    Arterton spoke about her initial surprise of shooting a love scene on her very first day on the set. But when asked if it’s her character that Bond falls in love with, she kept quiet. ‘I can’t say. Maybe he does. I’d love it if he did.’

    ‘It’s alot of pressure when you’re a Bond girl because you get compared to all the other ones.’

    Finishing off the interview, when asked if the male viewers would fall in love with the new leading lady in Quantum of Solace, Craig merely replied: ‘I think they will.’

    And yes, that swiming trunk question was asked, yet again.
