Daniel Craig has been praised by composer David Arnold as giving an ''extraordinary'' portrayal of James Bond.
Extraordinary Bond Daniel Craig
The British film composer - who has created music for a number of hit movies, including five within the Bond franchise - admitted that Daniel Craig who portrays the iconic British spy in 'Quantum of Solace' and 'Casino Royale' is his favourite choice of actor for the role.
He told BANG Showbiz: "I'm a big Sean Connery fan so it's difficult. He cast a very long shadow over the entire series but there's so many great things about Daniel, but then there's so many great things about Pierce Brosnan as well, I mean he was popular and very well liked.
"I just think Daniel has done something really quite extraordinary with it considering where it was, just giving it a whole new lease of life."
The 48 year old - who has scored music for movies such as '2 Fast 2 Furious', 'Godzilla' and 'Independence Day', as well as working with a number of musicians - claimed the highlight of his career had to be when he was asked to take part in the soundtrack for the 2008 Bond film 'Quantum of Solace'.
He said: "Being asked to do a Bond film, you know when you get the girls at the beginning with all the silhouettes and the explosions and all that, being a part of that, it's amazing."
Plans for the next James Bond movie are currently on hold indefinitely because of the financial problems faced by studio MGM.
