Starting the journey with ‘Casino Royale’ Daniel Wroughton Craig was seen in further four more hit works including ‘No Time to Die’. Craig is a highly acclaimed English actor who received international fame playing the secret agent James Bond in the film series.

The well-known Hollywood star is about to be seen in a Netflix sequel ‘Glass Onion, A Knives Out Mystery’ a reprise of the original ‘Knives Out’ a hit release in 2019. It’s the wish of the director Rian Johnson who wishes that he will be preferring Craig’s character in this series to propagate a mystery surrounding him.

Johnson said about it: “There’s definitely more Blanc, but it’s not very interesting to me, the notion of building out Benoit’s life. Like with Poirot and Miss Marple, what’s fun is how the elements of Benoit’s character reveal themselves through his act of solving each one of these mysteries.”

But according to the recent interview, while reprising his role as Detective Benoit Blanc in the Netflix sequel ‘Glass Onion, Craig affirms his inability to remember the accent of ‘Knives Out’. And he also added his endless effort and struggle to gain it back to make his work flawless spending time with a dialect coach to assist him towards perfection.

“I went away to work with an accent coach for three or four months before we started shooting. I’d forgotten the accent, and I didn’t want to do a pastiche. I wanted to make it as grounded and as anchored in reality as possible,” Craig told Empire magazine, which features Glass Onion on its cover, reports aceshowbiz.com.

“How the f*** do we take something that caught people’s imagination and made them talk about murder mysteries, and do it again without it becoming a pastiche of itself?” He added.

Craig proudly concludes that he has no fear about turning ‘Knives Out’ into a successful series of films any more.

“I’ve spent the past 15 years of my life trying to do that in a franchise, so I’m not afraid of it. If you’ve got the right people in the room and the right talent, then you can do it.

“Rian’s a genius writer and doesn’t want to repeat (himself). Neither do we want to let people down, we want audiences to enjoy the world that we created in the first one and believe in this one,” he added.

The following series is announced to be arrived on Netflix this December 23rd.
