Craig vows to stay in Bond role

Daniel Craig
Daniel Craig says filming has been physically punishing

British actor Daniel Craig has vowed to continue playing the role of James Bond for the foreseeable future.

Speaking to The Sun newspaper, the 40-year-old said: "Until my joints go I will keep going as Bond."

The star, who is currently shooting the latest Bond film Quantum of Solace, added that he had "no intention of giving up just yet."

The 22nd film in the series, and Craig's second outing as 007, is set to be released in October.


Producers have promised the movie will feature even more action scenes than Casino Royale.

"We are going from stunt sequence to stunt sequence. We did a body flight thing where you are free-falling in a wind tunnel. That was tough," said Craig.

" I did a two-day fight sequence which we had been rehearsing for two months. That was physically very hard, getting hit basically."

Craig revealed he will also be filming at heights and on water and fans can also expect some scenes of him with no clothes on too.

"There is a little nudity. It might not be full," he said.
