James Bond actor Daniel Craig has revealed why he returned to play the famous spy one more time after fans assumed his portrayal in the previous film was his last.

Spectre (2015) was the last James Bond movie before No Time To Die and the actor had said that he’d rather cut his wrists than return to the series.

A lot of speculation had been made following Craig’s statement and for a while, Idris Elba had been rumored to take over from him. It was an exciting prospect for a lot of people who relished the idea of a black Bond. But events would prove otherwise as Craig reprised his role once more.

In a recent interview, Craig disclosed why he went back on his words to play Bond again, stating that there was the need to finish something off and that Spectre wasn’t it.

If that had been it, the world would have carried on as normal, and I would have been absolutely fine. But somehow it felt like we needed to finish something off. If I’d left it at Spectre, something at the back of my head would have been going, ‘I wish I’d done one more.’ I always had a kind of secret idea about the whole lot in my head, and where I wanted to take it. And Spectre wasn’t that. But this feels like it is.Daniel Craig – movieweb.com
