Daniel Craig and Mads Mikkelsen reminisce about their Casino Royale scenes
By MI6 Staff
The video covers many topics, including the casting of the film, but most prominent is a discussion about the torture sequence at the end of the film.
Mikkelsen said: “It was a wonderful day for me—you, maybe not so much! Eight hours of you screaming your lungs out.” To which Craig responded that it was a time where he was nervous about everything. “I can’t imagine the person I was that you saw back then, because I was so uptight – not uptight – you know, jangling nerves about everything. Because everything was just so important. And I remember that day, knowing that the scene was good, knowing that it was like kind of on the edge and you came in and you just smacked it out of the park. And then it was joyful, because it was just an acting scene.”
Mikkelsen said that he couldn’t tell Craig was nervous at all, and added, “There was not one second that was in doubt that you would be the best Bond ever since we did the first scene together.”
