'Spectre' star Andrew Scott has revealed he thinks Daniel Craig is the best Bond of all time

Andrew Scott thinks Daniel Craig is the best Bond of all time.

The 39-year-old actor stars as Max Denbigh in the new Sam Mendes-directed Bond movie 'Spectre' and has revealed he considers Daniel to be the best 007 in the history of the iconic film franchise.

Andrew told Digital Spy: "Daniel Craig's been my favourite Bond since before I ever joined the gang.

"There's a melancholy edge to the character which I think is really beautiful."

Meanwhile, Daniel has revealed that despite being one of the world's biggest movie stars, he hates seeing himself on the big screen.

Speaking to Rick Edwards from London's Royal Albert Hall last night (26.10.15), Daniel was asked if he likes playing 007, to which he replied: "I hate watching myself on screen, but I love playing James Bond."

The 'Spectre' star also said he couldn't wait for the public to see the much-discussed movie, which also stars the likes of Lea Seydoux and Monica Bellucci.

Daniel - who first starred as Bond in the 2006 hit 'Casino Royale' - said: "It's fantastic to see everyone out tonight. I'm not overwhelmed I'm very excited and I can't wait for people to see the movie."
