London, Apr 29 : English actor Daniel Craig, who has insisted on doing his own stunts, has had his body insured for up to 5 million pounds.
And, with the second Bond movie promising to have more action, the actor's move may be a wise one.
Craig has already suffered a string of injuries while filming his first outing, and guessing from the insurance premium, it looks like the super spy will be in for more action.
"It's fair to say that with this movie, Daniel's insurance premiums have gone through the roof.
"I can't say for sure how much but there has been talk of him being insured for at least a few million, even five," the Sun quoted a source at EON Productions, the company behind the film, as saying.
"On Casino Royale Daniel did as many stunts as he could and he's been doing the same with Quantum.
"But the stakes are a lot higher on this movie especially as there are a lot more action sequences," the source added.
But for Craig, it all seems to be a walk in the park, and he admits that he loves every minute of it.
"I love having that adrenaline rush. It makes you realise that you are mortal and that life must be enjoyed," Craig said.
