No Time To Die: WATCH Daniel Craig's tearful farewell after shooting last James Bond scene

In just 12 days time, No Time To Die will finally hit UK cinemas following almost two years of release date delays. Daniel Craig‘s fifth and final James Bond movie was shot way back in 2019, long before the pandemic, and now his farewell from his last day on set has been shared. Having shot his final scene as 007 after over a decade in the role, a tearful Craig gave a few touching words.

Craig was fittingly wearing his trademark Bond dinner jacket after filming Cuba scenes in No Time To Die.

Holding back tears, the now 53-year-old said: “And a lot of people have worked on five pictures with me and I know there’s a lot of things said about what I think about these films or all of those whatever.

“But I’ve loved every single second of these movies, and especially this one.

“Because I’ve got up every morning and I’ve had the chance to work with you guys. And that has been one of the greatest honours of my life, so…”

This moment also features in Being James Bond: The Daniel Craig Story, a free documentary about the actor’s time as 007 available on Apple TV until October 7.

During the special, the star admitted he almost didn’t return to make No Time To Die.

He said: “I don’t want to go on about how hard Spectre was, but it was tough and I needed a break. I needed to kind of switch off, to getaway.

“And I genuinely felt psychologically at the end of that film, ‘Maybe I’m just too old.'”

Craig continued: “And the problem is, the way we started these films…was throwing myself at it like a bull in a china shop.

“So to sort of not do that seemed to me to be, ‘What’s the point?’ It just felt completely wrong. I mean genuinely I convinced myself, ‘That was it.'”

But then, just a few years later the 53-year-old agreed to return as 007 for what became No Time To Die, admitting that producer Barbara Broccoli “drives a hard bargain”.

Craig added: “So I don’t think I was ever going to get away with leaving after Spectre.”

No Time To Die is the longest James Bond move to date at 2 hours and 43 minutes.

That’s 15 minutes longer than Craig’s last outing Spectre, at 2 hours and 28 minutes, which came out in 2015.

The new movie will finish the five-film story arc that began in 2006’s Casino Royale, so fans better get started on their rewatch.

No Time To Die hits UK cinemas on September 30 and US movie theatres on October 8.
