Daniel Craig and Pierce Brosnan were among the James Bond alumni present at the 77th Annual Golden Globe Awards, held on Sunday, 5th January, 2020 at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles.
While walking the red carpet, Daniel Craig stopped to speak to Extra’s Billy Bush about his final outting as James Bond, saying that he’s “very sad, but also it’s been five movies and I’ve been incredibly proud of every single one of them, and now it’s time to go.”
Speaking to ET’s Nischelle Turner, Daniel adds “I’m very happy. I’m very proud of the five movies I’ve done, especially of this one. It’s going be amazing.” Asked what it would take to convince him to do one more, Craig says “you know what. It’s been an incredible ride, and I couldn’t be prouder of what we’ve done with these movies, and it’s time for somebody else.”
On the red carpet, Rami Malek briefly spoke about his role in No Time To Die (2020) to Ryan Seacrest, describing his character Safin as “quite unique … He’s very complex.” Adding that Daniel Craig calls him “misunderstood“.
On working with Daniel, Rami says he “had the most extraordinary time going head-to-head with that man. He is a consummate professional.”
Of his on set experience, Rami adds “what was really special about that is you see these movies, and I love the Bond films. But on day one, going out on stage, on set, in front of the lens, well, to everybody else, I actually got a Broadway version, sitting in the front seat, watching Bond do it firsthand. And there´s something that — it took me a second to step back and go, ‘What´s my first line again?’ This is a ‘pinch me’ moment.”
No Time To Die co-stars Daniel Craig and Ana de Armas were on hand to introduce Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy nominee Knives Out, for which they were both nominated for in the Best Performance by an Actor / Actress in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy categories. Sadly, Knives Out went home empty handed, losing out to Once Upon a Time in Hollywood in the best picture category, and to Taron Egerton (Rocketman) and Awkwafina (The Farewell) in the acting categories.
