Los Angeles: Actor Daniel Craig said that he needed to “move on” from James Bond. Discussing his decision to bow out as 007 after 15 years after being killed off in ‘No Time to Die‘, the 54-year-old actor feels that his exit was necessary for both the spy franchise and his acting career.

“Two things, one for myself and one for the franchise,” Daniel Craig told the Los Angeles Times newspaper, reports

“One, for the franchise, was that reset starts again, which (the franchise) did with me. And I was like, ‘Well, you need to reset again.’ So let’s kill my character off and go find another Bond and go find another story. Start at (age) 23, start at 25, start at 30.”

The ‘Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery’ star continued: “The other was so that I could move on. I don’t want to go back. I suppose I should be lucky if they were to ask me back, but the fact is that I need to move on from it.”

“The sacrifice that he makes in the movie was for love and there’s no greater sacrifice. So it seemed like a good thing to end on… I’m very, very fortunate as an actor to have got to a stage in my career where I can now go, ‘You know what? I’m gonna pick and choose.'”

Daniel Craig explained that he was frustrated at himself for referring to the physical demands of playing 007 instead of explaining the creative aspects of the spy series.

He said: “It’s my fault because I kind of didn’t shut up about the fact that I had all these injuries.”

“I’m p***** off at myself that I ever spoke about them. I put way more work into the creative side of those movies than I did the physical side of those movies.”
