Sir Roger Moore, who has possibly remained the finest '007' star till date, has hailed Daniel Craig as the best actor ever to play Bond. According to a report in the Times of India.

The 84-year-old who is writing his new book, Bond On Bond, revealed that he absolutely loved 'Casino Royale' and Craig.

"I loved Casino Royale and Daniel Craig. He is a wonderful actor, certainly the best actor to play Bond," the Telegraph quoted him as saying.

"I have never been guilty of method acting, or even acting if you want to argue a point."

He also insisted that the 42-year-old has "the best build of any Bond".

He also claimed that the touch of humour he brought to the seven Bond films he starred in from 1973-1985, was lacking in the last film, Quantum of Solace.

"I believe that Skyfall is going to have a lot more humour in it than Quantum of Solace did, something I'll be pleased to see.

"Of course, we had executives breathing down our necks when I was playing [Bond], but I never took them seriously. In fact, I don't think I took anything seriously. Except making sure I got paid on Friday," he added.
