Daniel Craig bids farewell to James Bond in emotional video: ‘I’ve Loved Every Single Second’



Daniel Craig bids farewell to James Bond in emotional video: ‘I’ve Loved Every Single Second’


Daniel Craig was overcome with emotion while giving a speech when his final James Bond film was wrapped in 2019.

The free Apple TV documentary “Being James Bond” looks back on Craig’s career as the iconic character, from “Casino Royale,” “Quantum of Solace,” “Skyfall,” “Spectre,” and his closing act in “No Time to Die,” which has been delayed multiple times but will finally hit theaters in the United States on October 8.

Craig gives a speech about his time with the franchise in a new documentary on Apple TV+.

“A lot of people here worked on five pictures with me. I know there’s a lot of things said about what I think about these films and all of those… whatever,” Craig said in the clip. “But I’ve loved every single second of these movies, and especially this one, because I’ve got up every morning and I’ve had the chance to work with you guys. That has been one of the greatest honors of my life.”

As one of the first major releases to be pulled from theaters due to Covid, “No Time to Die” is under a lot of pressure to deliver a year and a half later. With Rami Malek as the shadowy Lyutsifer Safin, Lea Seydoux as psychiatrist (and Bond’s love interest) Madeleine Swann, Lashana Lynch as new 00 agent Nomi, Naomie Harris as Eve Moneypenny, and Christy Turlough, “No Time to Die” finds James Bond reckoning with his legacy, now retired from MI6, but of course, he’s called back to the demimond of international espionage.

Bringing a new look to the Bond universe is Oscar-winning “La La Land” cinematographer, and 007 newbie, Linus Sandgren.


Craig reminisced about taking on the iconic role on Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show last year, saying he had “given everything I can” to it throughout the years.

“I’m so glad I came back and did this last one,” he said. “We had lots of loose threads that we hadn’t tied up. The story just didn’t feel complete.”

“I needed a break, I’ll admit it,” Craig continued. “I just needed to get my head away from it for a while. Once I had, and we started talking about storylines and things we could do and where we could take it, I was like, ‘I’m in, let’s do one more and try to the finish the story.'”

Until October 7, you can rent “Being James Bond” for free on the Apple TV app, and “No Time to Die” will be released in theaters in the United States the next day. Tickets for the film, which include 40 minutes of footage shot with Imax’s 15/70mm film cameras, are now on sale. This is a first for the James Bond franchise. No Time to Die is also the first 007 film to be released in 3D and RealD formats, making it a milestone in the franchise’s history.

Craig’s final appearance as 007 sees him retire from active duty and spend time in Jamaica. The CIA needs Bond’s help to rescue a kidnapped scientist, so his peace and quiet doesn’t last long. And, of course, there’s Rami Malek’s new villain Safin.
