Famous actor Henry Cavill reflected on Daniel Craig’s portrayal of James Bond after losing the iconic role.
Craig stepped into the role of Bond in 2006 with Casino Royale. Craig, 55, has played the famous agent in four more Bond films, including Quantum of Solace, Skyfall, Spectre and 2021’s No Time to Die.
Speaking to New York-based broadcaster SiriusXM, Cavill made statements about the Bond role he lost to Craig.
After producer and director Matthew Vaughn spoke about the “Bond curse”, Cavill interjected, saying that he “doesn’t think there is a curse for this kind of thing”.
Praising Craig and others who brought the Bond era to life, the 40-year-old famous actor said:
I don’t believe there’s a curse, but I think Daniel did an absolutely fantastic job. He and everyone else involved breathed new life into the series and that worked wonders.
Craig’s tenure as Bond officially ended with the 25th movie in the series, No Time to Die.
Idris Elba, Richard Madden, Will Poulter, Tom Hardy, Aaron Taylor-Johnson and even Cavill have been rumored to play James Bond.
“It should be late 20s, early 30s”
Barbara Broccoli, the producer of the series, announced that they have not yet started looking for a new actor to portray 007.
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Broccoli stated that they did not want to make casting decisions before deciding how the new series would proceed.
On the other hand, Broccoli also set some conditions for the next Bond actor. According to the producer, the next Bond actor should be in his late 20s or early 30s.
This is unfortunate for Cavill because the actor lost the role in Casino Royale because he was too young.
