Daniel Craig's personal life suffered during Bond shoot


Daniel Craig's personal life suffered when he shot the latest James Bond movie, "Skyfall," because he becomes "totally single-minded" while working on the 007 blockbusters.

The actor, who is married to fellow Brit Rachel Weisz, admits filming his scenes as Bond is "all-encompassing" and he struggles to switch off when he heads home. He tells Britain's Empire magazine, "When I'm doing the movie, I'm totally single-minded. It is to the detriment of my personal life, but fortunately I have a very understanding family and they understand that that's part of it and that it's all-encompassing. I keep my energy levels as high as I can all the time."

Regardless, Craig is thankful for the opportunity to work on such an established film series, adding: "I want to inspire, and be inspired. And I'm lucky enough to work with some incredible people with vast experience. I was standing on top of a train in Turkey with this crew of people, I looked around and I thought, 'You know, this is the best place to be for an actor.' So I kind of give it all I've got, and then collapse for a while."

Read any of the books, especially Casino Royale, and you'll gain so much more appreciation for Daniel Craig as Bond.  He is how Bond was supposed to be. His casting and the previous two movies portrayed the Bond that is the most true to the books.  If only more movies would pay attention to the books, we wouldn't have had a total joke of a version of Moonraker.

Daniel Craig brought the modern aspect of 007 to the screen and made the Bond image more current and better.   Sean was good at his time but Daniel Craig brings the more modern approachwith actions, movements, and just being cool.   It is more exciting to what the recent Bond movies.

Connery was no doubt the best Bond.He had all the Bond traits. Moore was ok,just wasn't convincing as a tough guy.Dalton was a joke. Brosnan I thought was a great Bond,but like Moore,he just lacked the toughness. Craig is just the opposite.No doubt he passes the toughness test but lacks the suave and debonair traits I envision of "Bond.James Bond".I don't believe that Bond was meant to be the quiet,brooding type.
