© 2015 – Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures/Columbia Pictures/EON Productions(JAMAICA) — Daniel Craig has once again been injured playing James Bond, and now shooting on the 25th 007 adventure has been suspended while producers evaluate his ankle.
The Sun reports Craig hurt his ankle while running on the movie’s Jamaica set last week, and was flown to the U.S. for X-rays. As a result, production, which was to shift to Pinewood Studios in London, has been halted.
“He was sprinting during filming when he slipped and fell quite awkwardly,” said the paper, quoting a set spy. “He was in quite a lot of pain and was complaining about his ankle.”
The source continued, “As you’d expect, he was also pretty angry that it had happened. He threw his suit jacket on the ground in sheer frustration.”
Craig, 51, has suffered a few injuries playing the suave superspy. The first was during his first shot ever as Bond in 2005: He reportedly got two teeth knocked out on the set of Casino Royale.
In fact, the actor has suffered injuries on most of the Bond movies he’s done: Craig tore his rotator cuff and sliced off a piece of his finger on his second outing, Quantum of Solace, and injured his knee getting picked up and thrown during a fight scene with Dave Bautista in SPECTRE. The latter required surgery that stalled production for two weeks.
At the time, Craig’s 007 stunt coordinator Gary Powell told Entertainment Weekly, “Wear and tear comes with the job. Bond [films] are always like this. Something always happens. You just never hear about it. This time, we got more publicity.”
