Craig Was No Bond Fan, Says His Mum
DANIEL CRAIG showed little interest in the JAMES BOND movies during their 1970s heyday - his mother says he was more interested in high brow theatre.
Craig, who was named as PIERCE BROSNAN's successor last week (14OCT05) following a protracted selection process, will make his debut as the suave superspy in CASINO ROYALE next year (06).
But the 37-year-old's mother CAROL admits playing 007 was not one of her son's childhood ambitions: "Most boys in the 1970s were really into Bond but (Daniel) wasn't... He was more into theatre."
