Several actors, like Roger Moore, Pierce Brosnan and Sean Connery they played James Bond on the big screen, but from 2006 Daniel Craig He was in charge of making the character. Now, director Martin Campbell revealed that Henry Cavill could have been the oneif Craig had not convinced the demanding group of producers in charge of approving the person who plays the secret agent 007 in his audition.
In a recent interview with Express UK Campbell commented that Cavill (known for the Superman movie saga) he only had one flaw in the tests: he looked too young. “He looked great at the audition. Her performance was tremendous. And look, if Daniel didn’t exist, Henry would have made an excellent Bond. He looked great, he was in great physical shape… very handsome, very chiseled. He just looked a bit young back then.”
After Craig played Bond in five films -from 2006 to 2021-, now the producers are looking for the actor with whom to start a new saga of the character (some of the names mentioned have been Idris Elbe and Aaron Taylor-Johnson), but Martin said that the process of finding the right person is somewhat complicated.: “The way they work with Bond is pretty cool, it’s very democratic. You sit at a table with eight or nine people. It was me and the producers, the casting director, etc. You raise your hand and talk about each person who auditioned, and ultimately everyone has to be unanimous in their decision.” At the moment henry cavill promotes the third season of the series Netflix “The Witcher”which will be released on June 29.
