Craig Steps In To Save Bell
JAMES BOND star DANIEL CRAIG proved himself a true hero when he used his clout to halt the filming of new movie DEFIANCE - after co-star JAMIE BELL fell ill onset.
The pair was shooting outdoor scenes for the war drama on location in Lithuania when the freezing conditions sent Billy Elliot actor Bell close to hypothermia.
And concerned Craig stepped in, ordering producers to stop filming so his 23-year-old co-star could head to his trailer to warm up.
Bell says, "The conditions were ripe for a bout of, 'I'm not f**king doing this!' but the closest we got was Daniel standing up for me one day in the rain at the end of October, it was absolutely freezing.
"My body started to lose control, going into hypothermic shock, I think. He said, 'We have to stop, he's starting to freak out and he's going to die'. He used his Hollywood power for good.
"It's daft, because you do have to be butch in the presence of Bond, but Daniel has a really good heart and said, 'You need to take a second and then come back'. He's very much the leader that he portrays in this film."
