Craig portrays flaws in Bond’s personality in new movieOctober 17th, 2008 - 1:11 pm ICT by IANS
London, Oct 17 (IANS) Actor Daniel Craig says re-reading Ian Fleming’s James Bond books made him broody and miserable and that was a good thing because it helped him to portray the darker side of the secret agent in the forthcoming movie “Quantum Of Solace”.The book says that the Bond was a workaholic depressive man and that’s what Craig wanted to show in the latest movie.
He said: “I wanted to play around with the flaws in his character. It was much more interesting than having him perfect and polished. I got most of my inspiration from Ian Fleming’s books. I reread them. In the books, Bond is suave and sophisticated, yes… but there’s also a flawed aspect of Bond. In the novels he is quite a depressive character. When he’s not working, he’s at his worst… I can relate.”
