Daniel Craig Reflects on His Time as James Bond: 'I Am Very Proud of What We Have Done'

“I am very proud of what we have done. I am so lucky to have had this opportunity the last 16 years. What happens in the future, it just feels like it is going to take 15 years to unpack all of this, to figure out what what just happened,” he told the outlet. “Sometimes it was a slog, it has gone like that [snaps his fingers].”

He added that he still remembers the day he was announced as Bond “like it was yesterday,” but still finds it challenging to “put a kind of explanation on the whole experience.”

“I have changed immeasurably since I began this in my professional life, and in my personal life,” Daniel said. “… I try to self-examine a little bit. It’s given me a confidence that I didn’t have when I started off, this confidence to sort of try and make the best of what you have and make the best movies you can. That is all I have ever tried to do [with] these films.”

“We have a beautiful, beautiful bunch of people, actors and some of the best crew in the world,” he continued. “That is all I ever, ever wanted out of this.”

There was recently an update about when the next Bond will be announced!
