The actor, 51, was working on an action-packed scene when he hurt his ankle. “Daniel was suited and booted for one of the last scenes in Jamaica. He was sprinting during filming when he slipped and fell quite awkwardly,” a source told the U.K. tabloid. “He was in quite a lot of pain and was complaining about his ankle.”
According to the outlet, the actor, who has portrayed the Brit superspy in four previous films, had to fly to the U.S. to get X-rays for his injury.
“As you’d expect, he was also pretty angry that it had happened,” the source told The Sun. “He threw his suit jacket on the ground in sheer frustration.”
Because of his injury, the studio has temporarily halted filming on Bond 25, which will also star Oscar-winning Rami Malek as the villain, as well as Ralph Fiennes as M, Ben Whishaw as Q, Naomie Harris as Miss Moneypenny, and Ana de Armas as Paloma. Cary Fukunaga of True Detective fame is directing.
This isn’t the first time Craig has been hurt while portraying the suave spy. During an interview on The Graham Norton Show to promote Spectre in 2015, the star, who often does his own stunts, revealed that he’s had to have both knees operated on after an injury filming the Bond movie, and his right shoulder reconstructed for Quantum of Solace. He also had two teeth knocked out while filming Casino Royal.
Bond 25 is currently scheduled to hit theaters in April 2020.
