MI6 — Daniel Craig's stint as James Bond has lasted 15 years, spanned five films and earned more than $3 billion at the global box office. And that staggering dollar amount doesn't even include the latest film scheduled to open next month.
Craig has done the iconic role of James Bond justice and will be remembered as one of the greats to play the part — a feat that has not been easy. In 2015, while promoting "Spectre," Craig was asked if he'd like to do another Bond movie, to which he replied: "I'd rather break this glass and slash my wrists. No, not at the moment. Not at all. That's fine. I'm over it at the moment. We're done. All I want to do is move on."
Apparently, Craig didn't totally mean any of it, considering "No Time to Die" is just weeks from opening.
This video recently surfaced online of Craig's last day on the set of "No Time to Die" and likely his last day as 007. The video is short, but it's emotional as the actor says goodbye to the character and all those who worked with him to make it possible. Just in case you're not aware, making a movie takes hundreds of people and not just those you see on the screen; it's a team effort.
As Craig thanks his coworkers, he becomes emotional — and who can blame him? He's been working on this for close to two decades and he's entertained millions of us with his version of James Bond.
Thanks for going out in a classy way, Mr. Craig, and thanks for letting us have some fun with you and 007.
