Never a Never Say Never Again
Daniel Craig has revealed the reasons why his Bond had to die. One of them is so he could never do a Sean Connery-esque return to the role.
"Two things: one for myself and one for the franchise", he said.
"One, for the franchise, was that resets start 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 other was so that I could move on. I don't want to go back. I suppose I should be so lucky if they were to ask me back, but the fact is I need to move on from it. The sacrifice 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 pick and choose".
