Ben Whishaw wants more ''classic lines'' if he gets to star in another James Bond movie.

The 32-year-old actor portrays gadget expert Q in the latest 007 film 'Skyfall', but if Ben gets the chance to reprise his role in the future then he wants his character to be ''more impatient'' with the secret agent, who is played by Daniel Craig.

Speaking at the 'Skyfall' World Premiere at London's Royal Albert Hall last night (23.10.12), he told BANG Showbiz: ''How will he develop? Maybe I will be more impatient with Bond. I hope I get to say more of the classic lines.''

Despite making his Bond movie debut, Ben insists he's ''never dreamt'' of taking on the role of the suave spy and is ''thrilled'' to play a character in the franchise.

He added: ''I never dreamed of being Bond - look at me! It was never really on the cards was it? No. I loved playing Q.

''It is a wonderful night, and I'm so thrilled to be a part of this phenomenon.''

Ben was joined on the red carpet by a host of his 'Skyfall' co-stars including Naomie Harris - who portrays field agent Eve in the action film - and the brunette beauty is ''over the moon'' about the hype surrounding the movie.

She explained: ''I'm an icon? I just become a Bond girl and then I become an icon. My gosh. It's fabulous, it feels amazing.

''I'm over the moon people are saying it's the best Bond ever!''

Other 'Skyfall' stars who attended the premiere included Dame Judi Dench (M), Javier Bardem (Raoul Silva), Ralph Fiennes (Gareth Mallory) and director Sam Mendes, and the red carpet was also graced by British royalty in the shape of the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall.

'Skyfall' is released on Friday (26.10.12).
