Volgens actrice Naomie Harris heeft Daniel Craig zeker interesse om nog een keer de rol van James Bond te vervullen. Dit gaf ze onlangs aan in een interview met de BBC:

“I think there’s a very good chance that Daniel will come back. I think it’s way too early to be thinking about other people at this stage. I think the fact that the last two Bonds – Spectre and Skyfall – have been the highest-grossing Bond movies of all time shows that people love him as Bond, and they desperately want him to return. And I don’t think Daniel is immune to that… I think he’s very aware, so I think that adds an extra level of pressure. But he has to ultimately do what feels right to him. “But I know that we, as a cast, collectively want him back. I know that Barbara and Michael – our producers – desperately want him back, so I think the only person that needs persuading is Daniel.”

Daniel Craig heeft de rol van James Bond in vier films gespeeld, gedurende 11 jaar. Sinds afgelopen jaar, terwijl hij bezig was met de promotie van SPECTRE, heeft Craig meermaals laten weten dat het tijd is om zijn smoking aan de wilgen te hangen. Tijdens New York Comic Con liet Craig weten hoe hij er nu over denkt. Hij zou de rol vreselijk gaan missen, mocht hij nu afscheid nemen:

“As far as I’m concerned, I’ve got the best job in the world. I’ll keep doing it as long as I still get a kick out of it. If I were to stop doing it, I would miss it terribly.”

Eerder was zijn antwoord op de vraag of hij nog een 007-film zou willen maken, “I’d rather break this glass and slash my wrists.” Over deze opmerking zei Craig:

“They say that sh*t sticks, and that definitely stuck. It was the day after filming [stopped on ‘Spectre’]. I’d been away from home for a year. Boo-hoo. It’s a good gig. I enjoy it.”
