Daniel Craig’s stunt double for James Bond film Quantum Of Solace has revealed that the stunts he performed on the movie were the scariest of his entire career.
We dread to think.
It’s no secret that filming for Bond can be a little hazardous – even Daniel injured his ankle while filming for No Time To Die.
However, Bond stunt double Bobby Holland Hanton has one of the scariest jobs in Hollywood, from running across rooftops to jumping from balconies.
Chatting to Metro.co.uk, he explained: ‘My first [stunt] in Panama on Quantum of Solace when I was stunt doubling for Daniel Craig, I had to do a balcony jump from one balcony to another, three storeys up in the slums of Panama and, because it was a night shoot, it was the last shot of the night at 2am.
‘It was my first ever stunt on camera, there was no wires, I couldn’t have any safety because of the way they wanted to shoot it with the camera – the camera followed me over the balcony…I did it completely free and that was pretty ballsy!’
Bobby went on to say: ‘We went to Siena on the same movie, and did the rooftop chase all along the rooftops of Siena in Italy and that was pretty high – 160 feet up in the air .
‘[I was] running across these rooftops, jumping onto buses and crashing and smashing through the tyres, and jumping off balconies.’
‘I’ve done a fair few [dangerous stunts]!’ he told us. ‘And [there were] a fair few that…shook my head a little bit to be honest, but it’s part and parcel of it, and I wouldn’t change it.’
Quantum Of Solace was Bobby’s first movie, with the stunt double also going on to work with Chris Hemsworth on the Thor and Avengers movies, and Christian Bale on The Dark Knight Rises, among others.
Daniel is set to return for one final time as the iconic spy for No Time To Die, however production on the movie faced multiple issues, including his injury, directors being replaced, an explosion, and now the movie being delayed until November due to coronavirus.
However, the leading man is done with people describing the movie as ‘cursed’.
Not mincing his words, he told GQ: ‘It p***es me off, because I’m just like, “Don’t curse our movie,” and, also, we’re doing our best here.’
Discussing early disruptions to the film that saw its ex-director Danny Boyle leave, the actor explained: ‘Danny had ideas and the ideas didn’t work out, and that was just the way it was.
‘I would love to have gone into this and had a script that we could shoot and it just didn’t happen.’
