Susanna Reid’s swipe at ‘grumpy’ Daniel Craig as he makes final appearance as James Bond after 15 years

SUSANNA Reid made a swipe at “grumpy” Bond actor Daniel Craig following the film’s premiere last night.

The Good Morning Britain presenter told how the 53-year-old can often lack charm in interviews – despite arguably having the top job in Hollywood.


“Do you know what struck me about the event last night?”, said Susanna on this morning’s show.

“That Daniel Craig definitely brought a good mood.

“Sometimes he can be a bit allure, can’t he?”

Entertainment presenter Richard Arnold agreed, saying: “He’s got form for being grumpy and perhaps not necessarily as enamoured by the franchise as he should be given the numbers he’s been crunching on it.

“He’s said in the past it’s been a challenge playing Bond – the same character for 15 years.

“But last night he clearly loved it and is very much indebted to it.”

The red carpet was rolled out for the hordes of celebrities descending on London’s Royal Albert Hall for last night’s premiere.

Arriving in a dapper suit complete with bow tie and raspberry velvet jacket, the 007 actor looked every bit as suave as you would expect from the international man of mystery.

He was accompanied by his co-stars, British Lashana Lynch and French Lea Seydoux both in stunning ball gowns.

After 18 months in the editing suite, the long-awaited No Time To Die film catches up with a loved-up, softer Bond.

And Daniel also showed his softer side when choked up as he paid an emotional goodbye to James Bond and the cast and crew.

After wrapping his final mission as the British spy, Daniel took a moment to give thanks to those who worked with him across his five outings as Bond.

He has since spoken out against James Bond being played by a woman – instead insisting female actors should be written “better parts”.

Speaking to Radio Times, Craig said that “there should simply be better parts for women and actors of colour”.

He added: “Why should a woman play James Bond when there should be a part just as good as James Bond, but for a woman?”

It comes after growing speculation about his replacement, as Craig will no longer play the secret agent after No Time To Die.
