I used to think the press was a necessary evil and now I don't think it is. I think it's something you choose.
We agreed to do it when I was drunk at his house one night, then on the day I had to have four large brandies - they didn't touch the sides at all. People just got on with it though. It didn't gather a crowd!
It's a huge challenge, a huge responsibility. Bond is a huge iconic figure in movie history. These opportunities don't come along very often so I thought, 'Why not?'
I know what I like in other actors: truth. That's the best. It makes you say, 'OK, I'll go with you on this.'
