Lazenby: Bond role has changed
Former James Bond George Lazenby has said Daniel Craig's depiction of the super spy is "a little cold".
George took over the role from Sean Connery for just one movie - On Her Majesty's Secret Service - in 1969.
But speaking at a British Consul reception in Los Angeles, the 73-year-old said he hasn't stayed up to date with the changes in the franchise.
"I saw the first one Daniel Craig did and I thought he was a good actor. I wish I had known as much about acting as he does to begin with.
"He's a little cold but that may be the way the trend is going. People are much colder today that when I was hanging around."
In spite of these changes, George said he's happy there's still life in the 50-year-old franchise.
"I enjoy the fact it's still around, I must have had something to do with that, I had to fill the gap after Connery.
"Bond has a good formula, most men would like to be able to go out with any woman he puts his eyes on, win at gambling and have a nice car to drive and be able to shoot people who get in your way. It's what every man would love, to be able to win every fight."
