Even international men of mystery get a little misty-eyed from time to time.
An emotional Daniel Craig was caught on camera delivering an impromptu farewell to his cast and crew mates for “No Time to Die,” the long-awaited next installment of the James Bond franchise.
“A lot of people here worked on five pictures with me, and I know there’s a lot of things said about what I think about these films or all of those, whatever,” Craig said. “But I’ve loved every single second of these movies, and especially this one, because I’ve gotten up every morning and I’ve had the chance to work with you guys. And that has been one of the greatest honors of my life.”
According to Deadline, the video was shot at the film’s 2019 wrap but was leaked online Sunday and went viral.
“No Time to Die” will be Craig’s fifth and final stint donning the trademark James Bond tuxedo, following turns in “Casino Royale,” “Quantum of Solace,” “Skyfall” and “Spectre.”
Craig’s five Bond outings trail only Sean Connery and Roger Moore, who each played the role seven times, for franchise longevity, Deadline reported.
“No Time to Die” is slated for an Oct. 8 release following multiple COVID-19 related delays.
