Superstar Daniel Craig’s knee injury scene has been cut from the final edit of “Spectre”.
The actor, 47, sprained the leg joint while filming a fight scene in Austria for the new Bond movie, and he later underwent surgery in New York and had several weeks off work to recover.
In a chat with talk show host Graham Norton, Craig said, “I knackered (injured) my knee. Sadly the bit when I did it wasn’t in the film. It was really a shame. I had to have surgery but it worked out quite well because everyone got a two-week rest – it was an eight-month shoot so we were all tired out.”
