Daniel Craig will keep playing James Bond until he is "told to stop".
The British actor is reprising the iconic role for the third time in the new movie Skyfall. He is honored to have been chosen to portray the suave spy and has no plans to leave the franchise yet but realizes that one day another star will replace him.
"I will keep going until they tell me to stop," he told the BBC. "I am under no illusions, I know there will be someone after me and hopefully someone after them again. It is just being part of that process."
Filming for Skyfall is currently taking place at the legendary Pinewood studios in the UK. Scenes have also been filmed in Turkey and Shanghai and Daniel is confident that the movie will be a great way to celebrate Bond's 50th anniversary this year.
The star feels comfortable in the role and is putting everything he has into making Skyfall a success.
"The first one was a bit of a whirl for me, it was such a new experience and I wasn't really sure what going on. The second one was like the tricky second album. With this one I really feel we have planned and we have a great script and we have introduced old characters and new characters. If I am still making them I want to leave my mark and I feel very much this is going to be bigger and better than before," he explained. "There has been a four-year gap but we haven't been resting. We have been plotting and planning. I have been itching to get going.
"There always is pressure, but this time double so. We are going to put on a good show."
Skyfall also stars Judi Dench, Ralph Fiennes, Javier Bardem and Ben Whishaw.
The movie is set to be released worldwide from October 2012.
