Personal Quote:

[on working with Daniel Craig in Casino Royale (2006)] I tremendously enjoyed working with Daniel. Obviously that was his first Bond film and it was a new take on the whole franchise so everybody was nervous because there was already so much criticism. I was amazed with the way Daniel handled the pressure; he was so focused on the work and came in doing the best everyday. See more »
