What is 'Being James Bond' and How Do I Watch It For Free?

Daniel Craig's swan song continues as we edge ever closer to the release of his final 007 movie No Time To Die.

Apple TV have today released an accompanying documentary called Being James Bond which features Craig candidly reflecting on his 15-year stint as the world's most famous secret agent.

It features never-before-seen archive footage from Craig's portrayal as Bond from his first movie to his last. It's the perfect precursor to whet the appetite for Bond fans and get them ready for the release of No Time To Die on October 8, 2021.

What is Being James Bond about?

Being James Bond follows Daniel Craig's journey as 007 from the announcement, to his debut in Casino Royale, to the long wait to share final performance in No Time To Die.

The 45-minute long documentary features exclusive interviews with Craig himself, as well as the producers of the Bond movies, Barbara Broccoli and Michael G Wilson. Through these interviews it's quickly revealed that, even though James Bond is one of the most coveted roles in movie history, Craig didn't want the part and needed convincing.

Behind-the-scenes footage and interviews give a revealing insight into the personal impact playing James Bond in five movies has had on Craig, and how the public's reaction to him has changed over time.

Being James Bond details the negative press reaction he endured, the issues behind the production of Quantum of Solace, and we also get to see Craig's final goodbye speech on the set of No Time To Die.

No Time To Die will be the 25th overall Bond movie in the franchise and Craig's fifth performance as the spy. He is the sixth actor to portray 007 in the Eon Productions film franchise after Sean Connery, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton and Pierce Brosnan.
