Daniel Craig can already feel the new James Bond movie.
"They've started to hurt," the blond Bond, 40, tells Extra
about the aches related to his stuntwork on Quantum of Solace
, due to open this fall.
"I can only gauge it by how much pain I'm in, and I think we're doing pretty good," he says.
As for the name of the movie (the 007 series long ago went through the entire list of Bond creator Ian Fleming's list of titles), Craig says, "I'm very happy with it. It came from an Ian Fleming short story. It encapsulates what the movie is at heart and a lot more which I can't give any away."
He does reveal something about the newest Bond girl, Ukrainian-model-turned-actress Olga Kurylenko. Her character, says Craig, is "very driven. She has her own mission in the movie and, of course, she comes across Bond. They are opponents and then they have to work together. She's very feisty."
