You didn't dwell on the blood and the brains spewing all over the place. Sadly, I had to retire from the Bond films. The girls were getting younger, or I was just getting too old.
I have no idea. I had never met Ian Fleming , but I remember when the search for Bond was going on.
I really wasn't aware of Bond until then. I was doing The Saint and The Daily Express was conducting a search for Bond. However, since I was involved with The Saint I would not have been available, although Cubby told me later that I had been on 'the short list.
It used to take them hours and hours in make-up to give me character. Now I've got the character, they take it all out. I like Bond.
But it's silly to take it seriously. It's just a great big comic strip. People don't realize how physically demanding the role is.
I'm still amazed how many people ask me to this day if I did my own stunts. I tell them if I did or Sean did or Pierce did then we would have been physically dead by the end of the first reel of every film!
Sean and I never discussed our experiences Actors don't really sit around discussing the parts they've played -- just in case someone says, "That was crap!
I have seen Daniel Craig in a number of films. He is a thundering good actor. The movie Casino Royale showed me that he is one hell of an athlete.
I am disappointed by what is happening today in television. We seem to have gone into an age of cruelty where everything is put down. Even I notice dear Cilla Black has got a new format.
Now they have 'ditch' - a poor girl comes up and if you don't like her face, get rid of her. I think it's absolutely terrible.
It's appalling. It's humiliating. I've not planned my funeral. I'm not the Queen. A procession through the streets of Stockwell would be nice, I suppose.
But when I go, I'd just like everyone to say: "He lived longer than anyone I knew. The wonderful thing about age is that your knees don't work as well, you can't run down steps quite as easily and obviously you can't lift heavy weights.
But your mind doesn't feel any different. I read the obituary columns and I think "Oh goodness, he was only 93! As a child, I had mumps and the measles.
Tonsils out. I didn't learn the alphabet until I was I was circumcised at eight. Much better than having it done later, like my old friend in the army, Captain Hornby of the Royal Artillery.
Afterwards I said to Matron, "You can't call Hornby 'old cock' anymore! I'm the worst Bond, according to the Internet. Generally hated!
I was too funny, too light. Didn't take it seriously enough. Well, I mean, this is a man who is supposed to be a spy. And yet he turns up in bars and hotels around the world, and everyone says, "Ah, Mr.
Bond, we've been expecting you. It's the same with the Bond girls. All the new ones say, "Oh, I'm going to be different from the others", but before long it's always the same - "Oh, James!
That's keeping up with the times, it's what cinema-goers seem to want and it's proved by the box-office figures.
Of course, I was getting long in the tooth. I was 58 when I finished. My god, Gary Cooper was seemingly an old man when he was about 56 doing Love in the Afternoon with Audrey Hepburn.
And I started to realize. When the leading ladies came in and they were younger than my daughter, I thought "Hmm, this is getting on a bit.
God, I could have had them as granddaughters. It becomes rather disgusting - dirty old man. Well, I still got paid, and had a lot of laughs.
I didn't regret any of it. I note that occasionally when I look at the Internet and I've typed in a reference and then suddenly up comes my name again and then I see the blogs where people write that I was too light and I was too old.
I would love to be remembered as one of the greatest Lears or Hamlets. But, as that's not going to happen, I'm quite happy I did Bond.
I accept this title on behalf of the many thousands of volunteers and workers at Unicef who dedicate their lives to helping the millions of children in need around the world today.
