With the excitement leading up to the much-anticipated follow-up to Skyfall, Esquire UK is featuring Daniel Craig as the cover story of its October issue. It’s Craig’s third time on the cover in his decade as 007 (and the third time he’s been interviewed by writer Alex Bilmes).
On his work as Bond:
“I’m a huge Bond fan… I love James Bond movies, and I love all the old gags and everything that goes along with that. No disrespect to what happened before but this is completely different. It’s got weight and meaning. Because I don’t know another way to do it… there have to be consequences. He has to be affected by what happens to him. It’s not just that he has to kill the bad guy, there has to be a reason for it.”
