Lea Seydoux was devastated by the ending of ‘No Time To Die’.
The 36-year-old star played Bond girl Madeleine Swann in the 007 blockbuster – which ended in the death of Craig’s spy version – and Lea was heartbroken by Bond’s tragic demise.
In an interview with Den of Geek, Lea said: “I still can’t believe that’s what they decided, that he’s gone. I remember when I read the script, I knew it and had to keep it a secret. “
Despite the death of Craig’s version of Bond, Lea is hoping the franchise will continue with a new face entering the role of 007.
The ‘Crimes of the Future’ star said, “It made me sad, actually, it made me really sad. But I hope they’ll find a new way to – you know they’ll find something else. “
The decision to kill Craig’s Bond in “No Time To Die” divided opinions – with James Bond author Anthony Horowitz claiming it was the wrong move – but the actor himself was “very pleased” with the co-inclusion, in which Bond sacrificed himself to save his partner Madeleine and her daughter Matilde (Lisa-Dorah Sonnet).
Daniel, 54, said, “There were a lot of different ideas coming and going and some got stuck. The bottom line of this is family (and) love, plus we had an ending, so it was about hanging the movie on that. “
The star described the dramatic finale as “a massive collaborative effort” and praised director Cary Joji Fukunaga for putting it all together.
Daniel explained: “This was really the title: make it better. So we all fit in in various ways. I tend not to shut up or keep my mouth shut on things and the only reason I want to get involved is because I just want it to be the best it can be.
“And Cary was a real collaborator, so it was very satisfying when we figured things out. He was very, very satisfying. “
