Daniel Craig’s First Foray Into James Bond Was More Dangerous Than You Think…

MOVIE NEWS – He wasn’t the most popular choice for the role of the new 007 agent, but Daniel Craig gave everything to the role of the secret agent – even his teeth…



The signing of Daniel Craig for the role of “Bond, James Bond” in the world’s most famous spy saga surprised quite a few viewers. The image did not fit into the preconceived image of an elegant and sophisticated secret agent. However, his work proved so exceptional that he is now regarded as one of the best Bond actors in history.

Every story has a beginning, and the actor’s story began with 007 in Casino Royale, a production from which, let’s just say, he didn’t come out unscathed either.


Daniel Craig experienced firsthand the dangers of being 007


During the filming, Daniel Craig faced extreme challenges. These tested his determination and physical endurance. One unforgettable anecdote, especially for the actor, happened during a fight scene in Prague. The moment’s intensity required a level of realism that led to an accident. In the accident, Craig lost two of his front teeth.

His personal dentist had to fly from London to Prague to repair the injuries, which shows the dedication and professionalism with which the actor portrayed the character!

The plot featured unexpected twists, exciting action scenes and a protagonist who was forced to face his own demons while fighting evil.

Because it offered a more realistic and emotional approach to the character. Critics lauded his acting, highlighting the intensity and authenticity of the role. In addition, the audience also enjoyed the exciting plot and the spectacular action scenes. All this rewarded the production with a theatrical income of $594 million, which was a record for the franchise at the time.
