It has been confirmed that Daniel Craig’s children will not inherit his fortune. The actor called the idea of inheritance distasteful after stating that he wouldn’t leave the millions he earned as a Hollywood star for his kids.
The "Knives Out" actor said he would love to give money to other causes instead of his children. The 53-year-old shares a daughter with wife Rachel Weisz and another with ex-wife Fiona Loudon. In an interview with Candis magazine, he said,
“I think Andrew Carnegie [an American industrialist] gave away what in today’s money would be about 11 billion dollars, which shows how rich he was because I’ll bet he kept some of it, too! But I don’t want to leave great sums to the next generation. I think inheritance is quite distasteful. My philosophy is get rid of it or give it away before you go.”
Daniel Craig discussed being a soft-spoken person who can sometimes be moved to tears by TV adverts. He said that he refuses to play characters who don’t showcase a strong emotional core. He claimed to be a person who can be quite emotional and values sharing them with others.
"No Time To Die" producer Barbara Broccoli said that a few lines from the book had been included in the script, which should be a treat for Bond fans. Moreover, some wonderful locations only in books will now feature in the film. It will be a classic Bond film with a modern twist. Since this is Daniel Craig’s final film as James Bond, the plot will culminate in everything his character has portrayed so far.
