In what is expected to be his final outing at 007, Daniel Craig has been seen planting a rather polite kiss on co-star Lea Seydoux as they continue filming the latest James Bond film, No Time To Die.
Polite for James Bond, anyway – but wheres the passion weve come to love?
As production steamrolls ahead in Italy on the 25th offering of the titular character – directed by Cary Fukunaga – the actors were seen getting to grips with one another in an intimate scene shot over the weekend.
Dressed casually, Lea (who plays Dr Madeleine Swann) wore a red and white sundress, while Daniel went cool and collected in a blue jacket and trousers, as they kissed on stone steps.
The 007 actor placed a hand on his co-stars shoulders, as they locked lips.
But with the character known for his passion and steamy embraces with the women of Bond, its a little G-rated, we have to say.
While many have been left wondering whether the hiring of Fleabags Phoebe-Waller Bridge might bring an end to the arguably womanising ways of the spy, shes insisted thats not the case.
Hes just evolving.
It has just got to evolve, and the important thing is that the film treats the women properly. He doesnt have to, she previously said of the character, after being hired to work on the script.
He needs to be true to this character.
Last week Daniel was seen on set sporting a blood-splattered face, hinting old mate Bond is still getting himself into the wars, despite retiring to Jamaica at the end of the last film, Spectre. Hes definitely not living the quieter life, by the look of things.
The 51-year-old is helming the flick and looked cool as a cucumber as he emerged on set, with a pair of black sunglasses and his hands on his hips.

He was later seen blowing up graves in further explosive scenes, only piquing our interest to the next instalment even more.
Bring on next year, we say!
