While promoting No Time To Die on a recent episode of The Graham Norton Show, Daniel Craig dropped a nugget about filming Spectre that resulted in him bolting and hiding from his massive co-star Dave Bautista. Via IndieWire:
“I threw a punch and hit him on the nose,” Craig said. “I heard this crack and I was like ‘Oh God no’ and ran away. I thought he was going to come after me, but he was so sweet.”
Craig said that Bautista set his nose back in place and production continued, adding, “He’s a lot tougher than I am. I’ll give him that.”
Turnabout’s fair play as later Craig made the mistake of asking Bautista to be more forceful while throwing him against a wall, and he immediately regretted that decision.
“I ended up on the wall, but my knee was over here somewhere,” “I knew and it was horrible because if anyone’s had a serious injury, you just know in your head that something is really wrong.”
