James Bond’s Knee Surgery : Daniel Craig Back On The Set Of Spectre


A few weeks back I mentioned Spectre, the new James Bond film due for release in November 2015. It has seen its fair share of drama just in the making of the film alone, what with 2 stunt drivers suffering serious injuries from an overturned car in a stunt gone wrong, and then Daniel Craig’s knee. The knee injury the 47 year old sustained during filming meant he had to undergo arthroscopic surgery to get him back to Bond stature! Evidently Craig is made of strong stuff as he has already returned to the set of Spectre less than a month after the injury. He is able to do all filming, but has had to delegate all of his running to his stunt double…the lazy devil!

Looking forward to this one, it’ll be interesting to see Craig’s physique and whether he was able to maintain the iconic Bond physique from Casino Royale.
