Daniel Craig Confesses He "Fakes It" When Driving Aston Martin In 'James Bond' Movies
In a new interview, Daniel Craig opens up about just how much driving he does in the "James Bond" movies. His final appearance behind the wheel as "007" is in the upcoming film, No Time To Die. Hear what he had to say below!
Daniel Craig will star as "James Bond" for the last time in the new film, No Time To Die. He spoke with Top Gear ahead of the new movie in a feature on the franchise's best cars.
In the interview, Craig admits they often "fake it" when he's behind the wheel in the new "007" movie, No Time To Die.

But it isn't because Craig chooses not to drive his character's iconic Aston Martin DB5. It's due to safety concerns regarding the stunts required for the film.
"You know we fake it, don't you? We're not allowed to do that anymore, although I do go driving," Craig said. "I was allowed to donut the DB5 in Matera, which was great."

Safety concerns dictate Craig's time behind the wheel in No Time To Die. Either a stunt driver will be filling in, or in-car shots of Craig as "Bond" will be, as he puts it, "faked."
And it's a wise choice. Production of No Time To Die was even delayed last year when Craig suffered an ankle injury.
In case you missed it, a special behind-the-scenes preview of Daniel Craig's last outing as "007" was released earlier this week. Check it out below.
