A fun activity to do in London over the mid-term break would be to head to Leicester Square to see Daniel Craig as James Bond in the latest 007 movie Quantum Of Solace. Since getting hold of a ticket for the London movie premiere is about as likely as cracking a quantum physics theory single-handed, we would have to make do with lining the red-carpeted celebrity route, in the hope of spotting Craig, Daniel Craig in the company of a glittering array of other stars.
Still, some photography, the chance of an autograph or two and a fun evening among the bright lights of Leicester Square is still a fun free evening - and there are plenty of other movies and restaurants to enjoy after the big event, at which, we suspect the main draw will be Daniel Craig himself. Apparently, there is now a Daniel Craig fan club! They will have reason to sympathise with poor old Daniel who has recently appeared on UK TV with his arm in a sling.
According to the Daily Telegraph, this is a recurring weakness, exacerbated by all his heroic exploits on the stunt set. It will be interesting to see if his shoulder injury has recovered enough to manage without the sling on Friday evening. Fans could try remembering however that the Daniel Craig James Bond values his privacy. They will still hope to get some Daniel Craig photos though, even if that's just on their phones!
The Daniel Craig Bond man was interviewed on UK TV recently by Jonathon Ross on the BBC. He did not seem the type to need to bask in the spotlight - quite the opposite, and seemed, like any educated intelligent person, to be utterly bemused by the interest people are taking in his shoulder! His refusal to be drawn on the topic or any other reference to his private personal life did him credit - and can only serve to add to his natural mystique!
Disappointed Leicester Square visitors can always console themselves with Daniel Craig merchandise - after all it's important to remember that a talented actor such as he has done other things! There are other Daniel Craig movies, not to mention giant calendars, action figures, gaming products and posters. As for certain James Bond wannabes in our family now lining up to pre-order, they will have to make do with being Daniel Craig on the daredevil mission-filled Quantum Of Solace Pre-order latest Playstation Game.
