James Bond star Daniel Craig teared up as he gave a poignant speech to the No Time To Die crew, after the film finally wrapped.

The upcoming 007 flick, which is set to be released on September 30, will serve as his last, as he steps away from the spy role.

The 53-year-old couldn’t help but get emotional as he said goodbye to the cast and crew.

In a glimpse from the Being James Bond documentary on Apple TV, he addressed everyone on set after shooting his final scene.

‘A lot of people here worked on five pictures with me,’ he said. ‘And I know there’s a lot of things said about what I think about these films or all of those… Whatever. 

‘But I’ve loved every single second of these movies, and especially this one, because I’ve got up every morning and I’ve had the chance to work with you guys.’

Getting choked up, he added: ‘That has been one of the greatest honours of my life.’

Well, now we’re crying too.

Daniel has starred in five Bond films across his 15-year stint in the famous tuxedo, making his debut in Casino Royale in 2006.

He also showed off his spy skills in Quantum of Solace, Skyfall, Spectre and new release No Time To Die.

As he prepares to bid the iconic character goodbye, the Knives Out star reflected on his time portraying Bond, and revealed that he initially struggled to deal with the level of fame that the part attracted.

‘My personal life was affected by being that famous all of a sudden,’ he said in a candid chat with the Sun.

‘I used to lock myself in and close the curtains, I was in cloud cuckoo land. I was physically and mentally under siege.’

‘I didn’t like the newfound level of fame. It was Hugh Jackman who helped me to come to terms with it and appreciate it.’

No Time To Die is set to be released in cinemas on September 30.
