Daniel Craig was ultimately convinced to return as the iconic super-spy for one more adventure, but he had to be certain that he was up to the physical challenge of the role.
“I finished that movie with a broken leg,” says the actor of his experience filming Specter. “I had to question myself: Was I physically capable of doing [another one] or did I want to do another one? Because that phone call to your wife saying ‘I’ve broken my leg’ is not pleasant.”
Léa Seydoux reprises her role of French psychologist Madeleine Swann, who Bond decided to settle down with at the end of Specter. Of course, that didn’t last!
“He decided to go off with her and try to have a normal life,” says producer Barbara Broccoli. “Which, of course, we completely blow a hole through at the beginning of this one. He starts off on a romantic journey with Madeleine and then believes that he’s been betrayed by her.” Adds Seydoux, “S— happens! Everything falls apart.”
Our new Commissioner Gordon Jeffrey Wright will also be back as CIA agent Felix Leiter, who asks Bond for help rescuing a kidnapped scientist (David Dencik from Top of the Lake).
This ultimately leads Bond to Cuba and onto the trail of Safin.
Moneypenny, Tanner, and Q
Three more returnees: Naomie Harris as Eve Moneypenny, Rory Kinnear as Tanner, and Ben Whishaw as Q.
We still don’t know a whole lot about Safin, but Broccoli describes him as “really a mean old thing.”
“Let’s just say that there are some immense challenges [he] has faced in his life,” adds Malek.
Captain Marvel’s Lashana Lynch plays another Agent named Nomi, who is rumored to take over the 007 mantle from Bond. The actress describes her as “a fierce, opinionated working woman.”
