Daniel Craig’s chances of returning as James Bond looked extremely unlikely after he reportedly rejected a £68m return, however co-star Naomie Harris is eager to see him back as he now admits he “would miss it terribly”.
Harris, who plays Moneypenny, told Newsweek when asked about Craig’s future:
“I would love him back, of course, but I have no inside information, I’m afraid.”
Craig previously and famously said that he would rather slit his wrists than return to the franchise. But last week, he seemed to have a change of heart:
“It’s a good gig. I enjoy it,” he told Vulture.
“As far as I’m concerned, I’ve got the best job in the world. I’ll keep doing it as long as I still get a kick out of it.”
“If I were to stop doing it, I would miss it terribly.”
Aidan Turner remains the bookies favorite but Craig certainly hasn’t ruled out a return just yet.
