London, April 29 (IANS) With his second Bond movie “Quantum of Solace” promising to deliver twice as much action, 007 star Daniel Craig’s body is rumoured to be insured for about five million pounds. Craig, who insists on doing his own stunts, has been beset by injuries. The producers have therefore decided to take no chances and got him heavily insured, reports.

A source at EON productions said: “It is fair to say that with this movie, Daniel’s insurance premiums have gone through the roof. I can’t say for sure how much but there has been talk of him being insured for at least a few million, even five.”

He added, “On ‘Casino Royale’ Daniel did as many stunts as he could and he’s been doing the same with ‘Quantum…’, but the stakes are a lot higher on this movie especially as there are a lot more action sequences.”

However, Daniel seems to be enjoying himself.

He said: “I love having that adrenaline rush. It makes you realise that you are mortal and that life must be enjoyed.”
