James Bond star Daniel Craig is "never scared" of performing dangerous stunts
Daniel Craig is "never scared" of performing dangerous stunts.
The actor - who reprises his role as James Bond in new 007 adventure 'Quantum of Solace' - loves shooting action scenes but admits there is a lot of work that goes on behind the scenes to ensure he does not seriously injure himself.
He said: "I'm never scared because we rehearse and rehearse. I don't just go stand on a roof and jump off it.
"The bus jump was weird in the movie was scary though, that's right I jumped out of a window on to an oncoming bus. Most of that's me."
The 40-year-old star - who sliced off part of his finger and needed stitches on to a cut on his face due to injuries he sustained on set - doesn't mind getting injured because making films beats having a real job.
He added: "It beats working for a living, I suppose - jumping out of a window onto an oncoming bus!"
Craig revealed the one thing that did frighten him as Bond was performing the iconic walk and shoot at the camera scene in the opening credits.
He explained: "That was when I was most scared. There were ideas to work with, but I was like, 'No, no, no! It has to be like the old movies.' "
