Daniel Craig has said that he will never walk away from the James Bond films.
The star, about to reprise his role as 007 in Skyfall, told BBC News that he'll "keep going until they tell me to stop.
"I know there'll be someone after me, and hopefully someone after them - I'm just trying to keep [the series] going," he said.
The actor said that work had been going on behind the scenes during the four-year gap between the previous film Quantum Of Solace and the new movie, caused by film company MGM's financial troubles.
"We haven't been resting on our laurels, we've been plotting what to do with this film," he said.
"The first one was a whirr - it was a new experience and flew by - the second one was the tricky second album, but this one we've really planned and got a great script.
"It's going to be different from the last one, but it will still be a great Bond movie."
