Daniel Craig Has Knee Surgery After Bond Film Injury

Daniel Craig has undergone a “minor procedure” to treat a knee injury sustained during the filming of the new James Bond movie Spectre earlier this year.

The 47-year-old actor, who is reprising his role as 007 for the next installment of James Bond, suffered an injury to his knee in February.

And after flying to New York from London during a break in filming over the Easter period, he’s now had the surgery with a spokesman for Eon Productions saying it was a ‘minor procedure’.

‘During a scheduled break, Daniel Craig had arthroscopic surgery to repair his knee injury. He will rejoin production on April 22nd at Pinewood,’ the spokesman added, also denying reports that Craig had missed several days of filming for his hospital dash.

The accident occurred during a choreographed fight scene at Pinewood Studios and despite fears over the filming deadline being compromised, it seems all is on schedule still.

Filming for the action thriller, which is Craig’s fourth outing as Bond, began last December at Pinewood and has involved the cast and crew travelling to Mexico and Rome too.

Spectre is set to be released on November 6 this year.
