Daniel Craig — Born in Cheshire, England, Daniel Craig probably didn’t imagine being the next James Bond while he was a struggling actor, waiting tables. He played several roles in stage performances, before debuting in his first film in the early 90’s.
He will continue to be well-known for playing the famous spy, James Bond for years to come. There was criticism when he was first chosen as the sixth actor to portray the character, but he has successfully performed the role for 3 films so far. Daniel Craig offers a few witty quotes.
“It’s not like I go out there to be a sex symbol. I mean, it’s nice of course — but embarrassing.”
“There’s always going to be someone with a bigger toy than yours.”
“I’m not about to do a romcom. That would be a disaster.”
“Some stalkers are quite benign, but finding someone in your garden at three o’clock in the morning with a meat cleaver and a hard-on can’t be much fun.”
“I didn’t want to do a zoo show. I didn’t want to do a study of someone with mental illness. I just wanted to show someone who was trying to live their life.”
“I don’t say: ‘can’t do that’, ‘won’t do that’. I’ve never thought in that way about work.”
“I’m potentially worth a lot of money, but I’ve got to go and make something that’s worth a lot of money.”
“It’s a huge challenge, a huge responsibility. Bond is a huge iconic figure in movie history. These opportunities don’t come along very often so I thought, ‘Why not?”
“I love rock with hole.”
“I watched every single Bond movie three or four times, taking in everything I could about how the character had been portrayed in the past, then threw all that away once I started doing the role.”
“Even the worst Bond movies, there’s something to love about them.”
“I’m a really bad liar.”
