To many Daniel Craig is inseperable now from James Bond, he's just the 007 of their generation. However for Craig himself things were not so clear cut.
While it had been known in the past that Craig almost turned down the role, and that any actor would have to think about the possible difficulties of playing the suave secret agent, he admitted he'd been pretty blunt when initially asked.
Craig revealed to Anderson Cooper on 60 Minutes: "I said, 'Thanks very much, you need to go away and find the right person,'" adding: "It was gonna be a life-changing thing if I said yes. ... It was going to change everything, change how I was perceived in the world and I suppose I was incredibly nervous about that."
Craig also revealed that he didn't want to be typecast and struggle under the weight of the label of always being a former/current James Bond for the rest of his life.
The actor, who's married to Rachel Weisz, said: "But that's not a bad thing, I mean, that's not a bad label to have."
'Skyfall' is released on October 26, and also stars Berenice Marlohe, Naomie Harris, Judi Dench and Javier Bardem.
