In latest Bond movie ‘Skyfall’ James is battered and bruised and left for dead, a man with questions; hunted by his own side, and as always, magnificently alone.
“It doesn’t get easier but does get – it’s more fun, it’s really rewarding, it’s still rewarding, I get a huge kick out of it. There is always a challenge and you kind of think you know what you’re doing and then you realise you don’t. So it’s kind of – it’s really rewarding,” says Daniel Craig.
With 007’s allegiance to M, played by Dame Judi Dench, challenged and MI6 under attack, Bond must track down and destroy the threat, no matter how great the cost.
“I think it’s different in that it’s perhaps a more personal story, that you see more of about the backgrounds of people and what has happened. Certainly a background of mistakes made and maybe regretted and covered up. And I think that that hasn’t been shown much before,” says Dench.
Javier Bardem is the best Bond villain for a long time, and French beauty Berénice Marlohe, Ralph Fiennes, Helen McCrory, Ben Whishaw and Naomi Harris complete the cast.
