Daniel Craig 'Was Just Being Sarcastic' About Quitting James Bond, Says Costar Naomie Harris
What would James Bond do without Miss Moneypenny?
“I’m over it at the moment,” he added. “We’re done. All I want to do is move on.”
But Harris says Craig was “just being sarcastic” and believes his words were “blown out of proportion.”

“It was not as he intended it,” she said, noting that her costar’s “sense of humor … doesn’t come across particularly well in print.”
“This dude needs a reality check,” the actress tweeted in response to the interview.
Spectre is rumored to be Craig’s final turn as the British secret agent, and speculation has already begun as to who will be his successor.
“I’m not in discussion with anybody about anything,” he told Time Out about reprising the role. “If I did another Bond movie, it would only be for the money.”
Harris is certainly hoping he returns, and told BBC News she views Craig as the “ultimate Bond,” adding “it wouldn’t be Bond without him.”
