I am not funny: Daniel Craig
IANS [ Mon, Sep 3, 2012 ]
- London, Sep 3 (IANS) Actor Daniel Craig says he had to "work hard" for funny scenes in the James Bond films.
The 44-year-old, who has played the British spy in two previous films and is reprising the same role in ready to release "Skyfall", admits he could never do a Sir Roger Moore-style of Bond, who was famous for his comic timings.
"Sir Roger Moore was about sending it up and that's not me. I kind of have to act it. I'm not James Bond. You know me well enough to know there's a difference between Bond and me," contactmusic.com quoted Craig as saying.
"I know I'm not funny-funny. So I have to work at it to find these comic moments. But if there's a good story, then I feel quite confident. Then I can wink and hopefully, the audience can go along with it. That was always the plan with 'Skyfall', and it relies on great writing and a good director," he added.
