Bond Actor Urges Iceland and Britain to Make up

British actor Daniel Craig, who portrays James Bond in Quantum of Solace, which premieres in Iceland next month, has urged Icelandic and British authorities to settle their differences and reach an agreement as soon as possible.

“We always seem to have some kind of fights every few years and I have no idea why,” Craig said in an interview with Fréttabladid. “We have to look out for each other better instead of taking this path.”

“Iceland and Britain always seem to have to fight about something and I hope that there will be a solution to this because it is all about money and the last thing we should fight about is money,” the actor added.

When asked whether James Bond would not be a good candidate for solving the dispute, Craig replied, “I don’t know whether his accounting abilities are good enough.”

Many Icelanders were outraged when British Prime Minister Gordon Brown invoked anti-terrorism legislation to freeze Icelandic assets in the UK and Craig said he is familiar with the story.

“It is all about where people kept their money and in what they invested. The entire world is suffering these days because the people who took care of their money made mistakes,” Craig commented.
