The director continued: “Not that I wanted to do it, but it would seem very odd that there I was.
“But I’d gone so far into another world, you know, and so immersed in it, that to me it just seems like, I can’t wait [for No Time to Die].
“I’ll be there at the premiere. It’s my friends. I’m proud of a lot of them and I cast a lot of them.
“I look at the trailer – there’s Léa Seydoux, Christoph Waltz, Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, Ben Whishaw – I cast all of them.”
