Pierce Brosnan Has Mixed Feelings About Daniel Craig's Exit in No Time to Die
Spoiler Warning!
This story contains spoilers for the 2021 film "No Time to Die."
Some James Bond fans were likely moved by Bond's death in “No Time to Die,” while others might have found it to violate a certain rule. One person who appeared to feel ambivalent about Bond's death was Daniel Craig's immediate predecessor, Pierce Brosnan.
Perhaps out of politeness, Brosnan never finished his thoughts on the matter. The actor said that he enjoyed “Skyfall,” but said of “No Time to Die,” “I'm not too sure about the last one ... Daniel always gives of his heart. Very courageous, very strong. But …”
Sadly, Brosnan did not elucidate and could be upset that Bond died rather than being allowed to retire in peace. While Bond may not seem like a character who is needed in our current world — hence his death — it feels inevitable that he will be rebooted at some point.
