London - Daniel Craig is different to James Bond in "every way".
The 44-year-old actor insists the suave spy - who he has portrayed in three movies, 'Casino Royale', 'Quantum of Solace' and 'Skyfall' - has "nothing" to do with him as soon as he stops playing the character.

When asked in what ways he is different to 007, he said: "Every way. Nothing - that man has nothing to do with me. Nothing at all, no."
While Daniel - who is married to Rachel Weisz - admits he has been typecast by a number of people for playing Bond, he has no plans to relinquish the role.
He added in an interview with Nuts magazine: "It's working out for me at the moment. So I'll keep at it, and there'll be other stuff to do. When I accepted the job, I knew that it would have a major effect on my career.
"I mean, people would find it very difficult not to see me as Bond now, which I always knew would happen. But what can I do about it?
"It was my choice to be Bond. So I've got to get on with it and try to be the best Bond I can." - Bang Showbiz
