Washington, Jan 9 (ANI): James Bond star Daniel Craig put his Hollywood power to good use while shooting for new movie Defiance after his co-star Jamie Bell fell ill onset.

The 007 star and Billy Elliot actor were shooting outdoor scenes for the war drama on location in Lithuania when the freezing conditions sent Bell close to hypothermia.

Craig immediately ordered the producers to stop shooting so that Bell could head to his trailer to warm up.

“The conditions were ripe for a bout of, ”I”m not f**king doing this!” but the closest we got was Daniel standing up for me one day in the rain at the end of October, it was absolutely freezing, Contactmusic quoted Bell, as saying.

“My body started to lose control, going into hypothermic shock, I think. He said, ”We have to stop, he’’s starting to freak out and he’’s going to die”. He used his Hollywood power for good.

“It’’s daft, because you do have to be butch in the presence of Bond, but Daniel has a really good heart and said, ”You need to take a second and then come back”. He’’s very much the leader that he portrays in this film,” he added. (ANI)
