Naomie Harris: Daniel Craig was being ‘sarcastic’

Naomie HarrisNaomie Harris, 39, insists Daniel Craig was just being sarcastic when he said he’d rather ”slash his wrists” than play James Bond again.

The actress – who played Miss Moneypenny in Skyfall and reprises that role in the upcoming movie Spectre – has defended her co-star by claiming he didn’t expect his comments to be taken literally.

Speaking at Sony’s Made For Bond event at the Mondrian London hotel, she said: ”It’s something he was saying sarcastically and now it’s all been blown out of proportion. He’s so dedicated to playing Bond that I’m sure he’ll be back.”

Naomie also insisted that although Daniel suffered an injury while shooting the film, he continued to give everything he had while on the set.

She said: ”To say that he doesn’t want to come back – I just don’t believe it for a second. It’s been blown completely out of proportion. Daniel worked 128 days on this movie and he works incredibly hard.

”He injured himself on the movie and came straight back after the operation and worked despite being in pain. He continued to do his stunts, despite his pain. I’ve seen him work 15-hour days and then come back and train for two hours. He does all of his own stunts unless the insurance won’t allow it.”

The Pirates of the Caribbean actress’ statement come after Grey’s Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo slammed Craig’s comments saying: ”This dude needs a reality check.”
