Daniel Craig speeds through airport ahead of Rachel Weisz

His onscreen alter ego James Bond has no trouble going undercover.

And Daniel Craig was equally eager to stay out of sight as he wheeled his own suitcase though JFK airport on Friday.

The 49-year-old actor and his wife, Rachel Weisz, 47, skipped the VIP service as they wheeled their own baggage across the concourse.

The Bond 25 leading man looked every inch the country gent, as he covered his blonde hair with a grey flat cap.

He appeared to be ready for autumnal weather in blue denim jeans and a dark sweater, underneath his black coat.

Brown suede boots completed Craig’s sartorial choices.

Meanwhile, Rachel made it clear this is not her first rodeo, in two-tone cowboy boots. 

The Academy Award winner looked effortlessly stunning as ever, apparently make-up free with dark framed glasses on her face.

Craig said in August that he would be returning to his 007 role.

However, according to The Mirror, the action man – who has signed up to play the iconic British spy in the next untitled instalment, out in 2019 –  has left his stunning other half concerned that he will be left in ‘agony’ following his adrenaline-pumping stunts. 

An insider said: ‘It’s a big bone of contention. Rachel doesn’t want him in agony again. None of his aches and pains have gone away completely.

‘There’s a legacy to all these injuries and she lives with them. They’ve come to an agreement about how hard he will push himself and he is pulling back from the edge this time. It’s a prerequisite.’

Having first tackled the role in 2006’s Casino Royale, Daniel has been repeatedly put through the ringer during his nine years as Bond and, with the stunts becoming more breathtaking in each film, the injuries are becoming more serious.

And his partner Rachel – who he married in 2011 – has every right for concern for Daniel going back to the role – which she refers to as ‘the boxing ring’ – after he revealed on the Graham Norton Show in 2015 that doing his own stunts left him needing extensive surgery. 

He divulged: ‘I knackered my knee and had surgery, I’ve had my right shoulder reconstructed, my other knee operated on and my thumb got hurt.’

His time as James Bond got off to an inauspicious start on Casino Royale when two of his teeth were accidentally knocked out during his first stunt, with the damage so severe his dentist had to fly out from London to the film location to fix caps into his mouth.

Popular: The acclaimed actor has also had to go under the knife for two separate knee surgeries injury and threatened to halt filming for six months and push back the release date for the film until 2016, but the actor was determined to work through the pain

A process: In the end, production was stopped for only two weeks and Daniel told film magazine Empire at the time: 'This has been a two-year process. 'Since we began talking about the script, it gets to this point and you say: ¿We can shut down for six months and you can go have surgery and come back then¿

The four-time James Bond than sustained a number of injuries while making Quantum Of Solace in 2008, including a blow to his face which saw a plastic surgeon called in.

He was also later rushed off set after slicing off the top of his finger, he tore a muscle in his shoulder, and an accident in Panama left him with badly bruised ribs.
