“I didn’t realise the repercussions”: Daniel Craig Felt Haunted by His ‘Accidental’ Nudity in $594M James Bond Movie That Became a Homage to Former Bond Girl

James Bond, the iconic secret agent, has always been hailed as a timeless embodiment of s*x appeal. His polished manner, flawless fashion, and magnetic charm have held audiences in thrall for generations. From his sophisticated charisma to his daring exploits, James Bond remains an enduring symbol of irresistible allure and intrigue. And Daniel Craig took this legacy ahead in style.

A significant moment in Casino Royale etched its mark: the scene that transformed the newest Bond sensation into a global s*x symbol. Yet, Daniel Craig has openly confessed that the iconic shot of him emerging from the sea in swimming trunks was a serendipitous occurrence.

Daniel Craig Didn’t Mean To Showcase His Body

The unexpected shot came about when Daniel Craig unintentionally swam into a sandbank in a less-than-ideal location. While filming in the Bahamas, they encountered a sand shelf just three feet deep. Originally intended to elegantly swim in and glide away, Craig ended up swimming in and unexpectedly standing up due to the peculiar conditions at that spot. It turned out to be a serendipitous occurrence.
“It was actually by accident,” he said. “Where we filmed, off the Bahamas, it’s just one of those places where there is a sand shelf and the sand shelf happens to be three feet deep. Because the idea was, I was supposed to swim in and sort of float off, but I swim in and stand up. And it was just one of those things.”

Craig quickly recognized that the scene bore a striking resemblance to the iconic moment in the first Bond film, “Dr. No,” when Ursula Andress emerged from the sea.

“It was going through my mind … as I did it, I went, ‘Oh fuck’. But I didn’t realise the repercussions of it,” he said. “I had no idea I would be haunted by it for the rest of my life.”
The promotional images for the 2006 film featured this shot, emphasizing Craig’s toned physique, which conveyed the message that he would portray a grittier and more rugged incarnation of Ian Fleming’s iconic superspy, setting him apart from his predecessors.

In the storyline of No Time to Die, James Bond departs from MI6 and is enlisted by the CIA for a mission involving the rescue of a scientist. This sets the stage for intense action sequences pitting Bond against a vengeful adversary who possesses a lethal technology capable of causing mass destruction.

The film resonated positively with viewers, amassing an impressive global box office total exceeding $774 million. Notably, the actor received a substantial compensation of $25 million for this installment, as reported by Variety. This income even surpassed that of several top-earning Marvel stars, including Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Hemsworth, and others.
