Daniel Craig thinking about retiring to Ireland

007 star Daniel Craig is considering retirement in Ireland, following an interview on last night’s Late Late Show.

The actor was asked if he would take a break in Ireland after having some time on his hands, to which he replied with “Yes, I mean, I love Ireland. I think I want to retire to Ireland if they will have me.”

This comes as the English actor parts ways with his notorious role of the highly-skilled MI6 agent James Bond in his final 007 movie ‘No Time to Die’ which hits cinemas next week.

When asked about his feelings in regards to saying goodbye to Bond, Craig stated, “I feel very happy and grateful to be given a chance to make this last one and also very grateful for the fact that we managed finally to get it to cinemas and it not go elsewhere.”

“It’s odd, I have never played a role over and over and over again. I think it really snapped into focus in this film that it is a character I play… and who it is, and I won’t ever do that again. I suppose that is quite moving, that makes me quite emotional, yes.”

Craig also paid tribute to the Irish 007 star Pierce Brosnan for the advice he gave him before taking on the role.

“I spoke to Pierce early on and he was such a gentleman and so encouraging and just, you know, he just said, ‘Get on with it. Just, you know, enjoy the ride’.”

“They are not for me; they are for the audience, and I want as many people to go and see them as possible and part of that is me sitting and talking to lovely people like you and saying, ‘Go see my movie’.”

No Time to Die will be hitting Irish cinemas on the 30th of September.
