London: Daniel Craig has revealed that he thought the latest Bond film ‘Bond 23’ would never be made and he would turn too old to fit into the role of the iconic superspy.
The 43-year-old English actor said that after the work on ‘Bond 23’ was shelved in April 2010 for financial troubles, he was apprehensive that he would never utter the words “The name’s Bond, James Bond” again.
“If we couldn’t get the film made it would be ridiculous because we’d made all this money and it was a good bet. They were just in a very complicated financial situation but there was nothing [the film-makers] could do. Either it was going to sort itself out or I was going to get too old and that would be the end of it. I was desperate to have another crack at it. I think I would have felt disappointed eventually,” the Daily Express quoted him as telling Esquire magazine.
Luckily a rescue deal was confirmed, with the work scheduled to start later this year.
