Now into his third foray as James Bond in Skyfall, Daniel Craig told Movie Fanatic in our exclusive video interview what served as his most memorable exotic location, certainly one of the pluses of playing the British superspy. “Sailing a yacht down the Grand Canal in Venice is one that's up there,” Craig said. “Being shouted at by taxi drivers of gondolas who thought we were taking business away. I learned a lot of bad Italian words!"
Skyfall lands with Craig and his cinematic alter ego James Bond battling one of the series’ best villains in Javier Bardem’s Silva. Having a director in Oscar winner Sam Mendes, a lifelong Bond fan, surely helped them craft one of the best Bond movies ever, but in the end… Craig told us it came down to creating something truly unique.
“We wanted to make the best Bond movie we could,” Craig added. “You’re trying to give an originality to something that everyone clearly has a deep connection to.”
No easy task… and we can happily report: Job well done, Mr. Bond.
