It's hard to believe it's been five years since the premiere of Skyfall. It was Daniel Craig's third turn as British spy James Bond — and we hope not his last. Joining Daniel in the 2012 installment of the legendary franchise was Naomie Harris, Javier Bardem, and the veteran Judi Dench.
From an iconic villain, Raoul Silva, played to perfection by Javier, to Bérénice Marlohe's ultimate femme fatale Sévérine, Skyfall was easily one of the most memorable of the series. “What I’m doing is not what Pierce [Brosnan] was doing, and Pierce wasn’t doing what Roger Moore was doing, or what Sean was doing, or what Timothy [Dalton] was doing,” Daniel told Vanity Fair at the time. “Things have changed. It’s just kind of the ride of it. Pierce used to say that it’s like being responsible for a small country. It’s kind of like you have to look after it diplomatically. I kind of get that."
For Judi, Daniel is the perfect Bond. “The glorious thing about him is he has a great sense of humor,” she added. “That’s essential — the whole essence of Bond is that he doesn’t take himself so seriously.”
And who can forget the incredible soundtrack, made complete by Adele's song, aptly named, "Skyfall." “There’s a lot of instant spotlight and pressure when it comes to a Bond song," she said. "When we recorded the strings, it was one of the proudest moments of my life. I’ll be back combing my hair when I’m 60 telling people I was a Bond girl back in the day I’m sure!”
Since Skyfall, Daniel has returned as 007 in Spectre and is slated to appear in the next film in the franchise, set for release in 2019. We will be patiently waiting… Click here to purchase Skyfall today!
