Michael Caine is confirming his retirement.

The 90-year-old actor spoke out in an interview with The Telegraph, confirming that his upcoming film The Great Escaper may be his last.

The actor used a walking stick while filming the true story of Bernard Jordan, a British World War II veteran who escaped his retirement home to attend the 70th anniversary of D-Day commemorations in France.

“I was so happy to do it. I just loved the character of Bernie. I thought he was incredible, and it’s so beautifully written,” he said of the role.

“They gave me a very good walking stick, and I was able to do scenes that needed that. I’d just do them once, and then fall over. But just one take, and that’s it. Forget it.”

“I’ve had the best possible life I could have thought of. The best possible wife, and the best possible family. They may not be a family that other people would say is the best possible family — but the best possible family for me,” he added.

On Wednesday (September 20), he made his first red carpet appearance in two years.
