Dave Bautista is the consummate professional, even after James Bond accidentally broke his nose.
Daniel Craig recently appeared on The Graham Norton Show to promote No Time To Die, the latest film in the James Bond series. During the conversation, he looked back on filming Spectre, as well as the fight scene that resulted in Dave Bautista, who played Mr. Hinx, breaking his nose. Craig told Norton that he “heard this crack” and ran away because he thought Bautista would come after him, but the former WWE star says it’s not exactly how he reacted.
Replying to a recap of the show (via Fandom), Bautista said Craig didn’t run, but he was quite shocked at what had transpired. Bautista then said he assessed the situation and kept rolling, creating one of the best fight scenes ever.
“He did not run!!! He started screaming ‘Fuck I broke his nose!!’ And he did. And then he hugged me, apologized, we laughed, I changed clothes, shoved TP up my nose and we continued to make one of the best fight scenes ever. Very proud of it. And I love me some DC #DreamChaser,” Bautista wrote.
Daniel Craig will play James Bond for a final time in No Time To Die, which is finally set to hit theatres on October 8. Fans can currently watch Dave Bautista in See on Apple TV, as well as Denis Villeneuve’s Dune on October 22.
