According to GVN, Daniel said: ‘I used to hate it, but I think that was fame I didn’t like. I had to get used to being famous which is still so foreign to me.’

‘Everybody f*****g hated me,’ Daniel joked of the public reaction to his casting.

The Chester-native bade farewell to the role in 2021’s No Time To Die, with the likes of Henry Cavill, Regé Jean-Page and Tom Hardy leading favourites to play 007 next.
