Daniel Craig: Skyfall Will be Very Funny

Daniel CraigDaniel Craig says Skyfall will be a "very funny" film.

The 44-year-old actor - who is reprising his role of James Bond in the forthcoming motion picture - revealed his alter-ego shows his humoros side in a scene with go-go dancers, and Daniel thought it was "about time" he showed his humouros side in the film franchise.

"The humor is not something we try to do but it just comes from the situations. I think there are some very funny lines in it but then I have a very dark sense of humor, so others might not agree with me," he said. "Go-go dancers. It's not something I have done before and I thought it was about time I showed that part of myself," he replied when asked about what would be different in this film.

Daniel insists that Skyfall feels like a more "old-fashioned Bond movie" in the franchise's 50th year thanks to its "great" Istanbul setting, and he has enjoyed reprising the "challenging" role for the third time.

"It is great to come to Istanbul and film at some great locations. It feels like an old-fashioned Bond movie. I am still learning. I want to be challenged every day - and I am being challenged," explained.

Berenice Marlohe stars as new Bond girl Severine in the movie, and she found it "very easy" to perform bedroom scenes with Daniel. "He's very professional and grounded but also very easy. I felt very relaxed. These are the best conditions in which to perform. I make a point of not knowing whether she is obviously the good part or the bad part. She is enigmatic," she said in a joint interview with The Sun.
