Daniel Craig's pal Mark Strong thinks he's done with 007

23-Feb-2016 • Bond 25

Daniel Craig's good friend and fellow actor Mark Strong thinks his pal is done with 007. Having starred in four James Bond films, Strong told ShortList that he believes Craig will holster his PPK and not come back for a fifth time.

Asked whether Strong would like to play a Bond villain, he said: "Do you know what, I’d have loved to have played the villain in a Bond movie while Daniel was doing it because he’s a pal and that would have been great. But I think he’s come to the end of his Bond time and so it’s probably never going to happen, but that would have always been great."

"Having played so many villains, it would have been wonderful to have done the villain of villains, if you like. Because a Bond villain has a status all of his own."

Asked if he could try and convince Craig to do one more film, Strong said: "Well, I will try, believe me, I will do my best. But there are powers at work greater than us who make all these decisions. He has been [wonderful] and he’s loved it. But I think he feels like he’s mined it. He’s done what he wants with it. That point has come."
