The former wrestler broke his knee.
In full promotion of the 25th film of the James Bond saga To die can wait, which we know will mark the end of the Craig-Bond cycle, the actors of the film went through the set of the Graham Norton Show. Returning to the various films in which he played the famous British secret agent, Daniel Craig spoke of the injuries that marked his shootings, and in particular that of 007 Spectrum. He thus tells how Dave Bautista (Guardians of the Galaxy) broke her knee, before Craig returned the favor by breaking her nose.
It was while filming the brawl scene on the bandwagon that some bones were broken. Craig says that after weeks of rehearsals, during the filming, he asks Bautista not to spare him too much. “Don’t worry I’m solid”, he would have said, before regretting: “I forgot how tough he is.” Plated against a wall, he realizes that his knee is injured. “Those who have received this kind of injury before know something is wrong.” Forced to pause filming, he finally resumed the game this time with pins in his knee. He explains “to have fought” to finish the scene.
He then continues, recounting that he broke Bautista’s nose. Silence on the set. “I didn’t mean to do it, it was a mistake.” He details that he must have punched him in the nose during the fight, and heard a crack. He then ran away, thinking he was going to run after her. “He was so nice, he just put his nose back on.” Another reason why Craig was reluctant to return to Bond in To die can wait ?
In theaters on October 6, To die can wait marks the end of the Craig era on the world of James Bond. With Léa Seydoux, Rami Malek, Ana de Armas and Lashana Lynch among others, the film directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga opens the door to a new interpreter of the British agent with the most famous license to kill, who has not yet been designated.
