Daniel Craig loves playing Bond

Los Angeles - Daniel Craig has "no desire" to "escape" James Bond.

The British actor - who will portray the iconic British spy for the third time in Skyfall and is rumoured to have signed up for an additional five movies - thinks if he signed up for anything radically different in between films, people would accuse him of trying to stop himself being typecast.

He said: "I don't think 'This will look good next to that...' If that's what you do, you're inhibiting yourself against instinct, which is just wrong.

"Of course I could [play a role like a child killer]. Whether I'd want to is another matter. I think it would smack slightly of, you know, 'Oh, he's only doing that to get away from Bond.'

"I've got no desire to escape the role. I love playing Bond - it's fantastic."

Despite his love of playing Bond, Daniel admits he almost quit the franchise when studio MGM ran into financial difficulties, causing delays to the next film in the series.

He told the Guardian newspaper: "There was that long hiatus where Bond maybe wasn't happening. I'd got it into my head that if it went another two years on top of the two-year gap we'd already had, then they should probably find someone else. And I should think about getting on with things."
