The 52-year-old actor makes his last outing as 007 in the forthcoming movie No Time to Die – the release of which is delayed until April 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Asked for his advice for the new Bond during an interview on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Daniel had a quick, hilarious response.
“Don’t f**k it up,” he replied. “It’s a beautiful, amazing thing. Don’t f**k it up! Leave it better than when you found it. Is that alright? Can I say that? Probably not!”
No Time to Die finds Bond enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica after he has left active service, when his old CIA friend Felix Leiter, played by Jeffrey Wright, turns up asking for help. Leaving his life with partner Dr. Madeleine Swann, played by Lea Seydoux, Bond returns to the field to face the villainous Safin (Rami Malek) who is armed with a new dangerous technology that could impact the world.
