London - Daniel Craig wants to play James Bond for as long as he can.

The actor will be reprising his role as the British spy for the third time in new movie Skyfall and says he has no intention of quitting until he is told to.

He said: "I will keep going until they tell me to stop."

Behind the scenes

However, Daniel - who took over from Pierce Brosnan as the suave spy in 2005's Casino Royale - knows there will be a time when he has to give it up.

He told the BBC: "I know there'll be someone after me, and hopefully someone after them - I'm just trying to keep [the series] going."

Daniel, 44, says despite there being a four-year gap between Skyfall and the last Bond film Quantum of Solace, work had still been going on behind the scenes.

He said: "We haven't been resting on our laurels, we've been plotting what to do with this film.

"The first one was a whirr - it was a new experience and flew by - the second one was the tricky second album, but this one we've really planned and got a great script.

"It's going to be different from the last one, but it will still be a great Bond movie."

Skyfall, which is directed by Oscar-winner Sam Mendes, also stars Javier Bardem, Albert Finney, Ralph Fiennes and sees Dame Judi Dench return as M.

It is due for release later this year.
