Daniel Craig: «Comedy and Bond should be crossed»
– Feel now more comfortable, you’re in a bond? This is your third film in this role.
“I think not. Yes, I played in the «Casino», and in «Kvant», but «Skyfall» – this is a great new experience. And what we were joined by Sam, and the fact that we managed to work out the scenario (as for a long time we began to deal with it) – all this helped me to prepare for the new bond. I know now that this is my bond. So, when I start to work, I want, that he combines the old and Bonds, and new.
– What for you this part of the James bond differs from the previous ones?
“I don’t think I can at the moment to talk about this, because I have to long to go into in detail. But now I have my confidence, but not some of the financial plan, and confidence in history and our team, especially with such an amazing Director. It was so cool, I hope that the audience will feel it.
“The bond 50-year-old anniversary. Was there any particular pressure in the production of this time?
– A certain amount of pressure is always! We have audience and, fortunately, a lot of fans they can’t wait to see the next «bond», they have big expectations, which we want to justify, if not surpass. It is our wish that this was the best «bond» for the whole history, and, I think, it is and will be. The feeling of it. I mean, look at Sam, actors and a perfect scenario. And as our viewers expect from us better «bond», we will try to satisfy their expectations. And actually, you know, the film for himself answers, let’s just see what people say.
– You once told us that the sense of humor is an integral part of the bond. Developed it if you have in this area?
“Yes, even too much. I took the risk. Although in this case, with the sense of humor it must be careful. I don’t want to criticize my previous films about the bond. We have made them. We had a story that must be told, she was serious. But we still need to have the scripts, in which there is some Comedy basis. For me, Comedy and bond, in General, any movie that contains the action, should intersect. But this is the most comedic line should be thought out in advance, it can’t be just think of at the site. So we worked on the script for two whole years, we have everything was thought out to the smallest detail. In this film we were able to combine a lot of different elements, which were not noticeable in the previous parts. Here are things that do not normally expect to see in films about the agent 007.
– What are the dynamics of communication between you and character Javier Bardem will?
– If the actor’s point of view, that is one thing. I met Javier two and a half years ago on some charity event in Los Angeles. Then I just walked up to him and asked: «do you Want to play in бондиане?» And he said, «Yes, but what? I’m a fan of his!» Imagine, it was so! It seems to me that that’s the way it should be – just go and ask! And no one told me, that might be different. To be honest, I learned this from Barbara Broccoli. She was very insistent. A Xavier – just wonderful, incredible and in General a brilliant actor. Yet it is this spirit of fun, victory. He is trying to achieve the goal, is devoted to the process. I always smile when he’s on the platform. This is so cool, when such actors play together with you. Barbara joked that the site we have the battle of the titans.
– We would like to play more of any character in the бондиане? May, Silva (character Javier Bardem will – ed.)?
– M-m-m, the hero of Judi Dench, no doubt! Or maybe I just want to be Judy.
– Each Director brings something new to the franchise. What brought Sam Мэндес?
“Sam is a great actor’s Director, is beyond doubt. But more important, and the energy that he radiates to the site. We, actors, all terribly lazy. Sorry, of course, but it is so. Great to just come and talk to you in the morning, but so we are here for eight months. And the energy of Sam moves us forward. For us in a film the history is important, but Sam made the characters are so real and shallow, as soon as possible. So in this «bond» were the most spectacular action scenes. And Sam is doing incredible work. And he had it right attitude. He does everything in his power, a sort of a perfectionist. I’m so happy that we have. It makes me very self-assured, confident in his bond. Sometimes nice to relax on the site, knowing that at Sam’s all under control. Usually I try to control everything, and Sam gives me concentrate on my work. And thanks to this I can enjoy the process.
“You once mentioned that you have personal knowledge of how to be a spy. This is your third such a film, do you feel that formed their bond?
– I have never had in my head that way, what should be the bond. My only vision was as follows: I had the chance to come and play bond, we have given on this movie money, so we should give full, and this is all what I wanted, and I know that, and Barbara felt the same thing. It’s always been my only ambition. Once I was given a chance, as well as the best writers, the Directors, the best actors, then why not? Why not? We must do the best that we can. This is about the movies about the bond, for the sake of all that’s Holy! People want to come and see them, the spectators waiting for them with impatience, so let’s post to complete. This is the only sight that I ever shared on this account.
