Daniel Craig has revealed one of the hardest parts of playing James Bond over the years, and he said it's down to his "sense of humour."
Daniel Craig has played 007 for more than 15 years, making him the longest-serving Bond actor. He made his final appearance as the MI6 agent in No Time To Die this October.
The film broke records during its opening weekend, both domestically and abroad, providing cinema with the boost it needed to recover from the pandemic.
In a sit down interview with the BBC's Ali Plumb for Becoming... Bond: A Daniel Craig Special recently, Craig, 53, revealed that he would often be told by the directors to keep his mouth closed during filming.
"It's difficult because - you probably can tell - I'm a bit giggly and I kind of like to have a laugh. I hope you can tell that! And I kind of like to do that on set."
But, he continued, "there's a moment to do that, and I would laugh all the way through it if I could. I think sometimes I've gotta... get a bit more serious."
He added that he would occasionally be reminded to be more or less like his character: "More Bond, less Bond," he explained.
The actor certainly has that dry sense of humour nailed down. Ahead of the film's release, he told Lorraine Kelly (jokingly) that Hugh Jackman playing the next James Bond would be "over my dead body."
After more than 15 years, it was an emotional goodbye to the franchise from Craig.
He has made a fortune from the Bond franchise and is now one of the world's highest-paid actors.
But Craig has also starred in countless other films over the years, we've ranked some of the best ones.
Daniel Craig also kindly shared his (rather blunt) advice for the next James Bond, whoever that may be.
