Daniel Craig said, as quoted by People.com:
A lot of people here worked on five pictures with me,
I know there are a lot of things said about what I think of these films, but I’ve loved every single second of these movies. And especially this one because I’ve got up every morning, and I’ve had the chance to work with you guys. And that has been one of the greatest honors of my life.
