Daniel Craig Reveals He Accidentally Broke Dave Bautista’s Nose in ‘Spectre’ Fight Scene – Then He Ran Away

Daniel Craig detailed some of the most excruciating injuries he sustained on the set of his “James Bond” flicks, including the time he shattered Dave Bautista’s nose during a fight scene and then fled fearful of retaliation. Craig revealed on “The Graham Norton Show” that he and Bautista had to square off in 2015’s “Spectre” for a fight sequence on a train.

“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.”

According to Craig, Bautista dismissed his fears and nonchalantly repositioned his nose.

“He’s a lot tougher than I am. I’ll give him that,” he said.

Craig also admitted to injuring himself during the fight scene with Bautista. He stated that while Bautista – a former professional wrestler turned actor – was required to throw him around during the fight sequence; he was being “gentle” owing to their physical size disparity.

On the other hand, Craig urged Bautista to increase the intensity one day, which resulted in a significant knee injury.

“I ended up on the wall, but my knee was over here somewhere,” Craig said, gesturing away from him. “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.”

Craig stated that he was required to film the remainder of the scene while wearing a brace on his leg.

Daniel Craig’s final appearance as Bond will be in the upcoming 25th James Bond film, “No Time To Die.” Barbara Broccoli, co-producer of Bond films with Michael G. Wilson, told BBC Radio 4’s “Today” program early Monday morning that there were no plans to consider Craig’s replacement until 2022.

“We’re not thinking about it at all,” she said. “We want Daniel to have his time of celebration. Next year we’ll start thinking about the future.”

“He’s been such a great Bond. Those are big shoes to fill. I can’t even [think if it’s] possible,” Wilson added.

Broccoli recently revealed to the PA news agency that Bond would remain a guy.

“James Bond is a male character,” she said. “I hope that there will be many, many films made with women, for women, by women, about women.”

“I don’t think we have to take a male character and have a woman portray him. So yes, I see him as male. And I’m sort of in denial; I would love for Daniel to continue forever.”

“No Time To Die” is scheduled to open in theaters across the United Kingdom on September 30.
