Daniel Craig says 'Skyfall' returns to Bond's classic roots.

The 007 actor thinks director Sam Mendes brought a unique passion to the brand new chapter of the spy franchise and the film will go down in history as a James Bond classic.

Daniel said: ''Acting-wise Sam just has it covered. He does that standing on his head, that's what he does - he's brilliant with actors. But he has also brought a passion about Bond to it.

''He's a proper fan of Bond, and he really has wanted to create something that he's proud of, but also that's going to be remembered as something that's a classic - classically Bond, and also a good movie.''

The 44-year-old actor - who first played the eponymous secret agent in 2008 - was thrilled to bring the action star back to his hometown of London and revealed the thriller has a quintessentially British feel to it thanks to exciting chase scenes around famous landmarks.

Daniel said: ''There's an element of Bond coming back to London that you haven't seen in a Bond movie for a long time. MI6 comes under attack. We get to run down Whitehall in screaming cars.

''We actually managed to close Parliament Square. For a while it was ours. It makes me very excited - a unique experience. We used the subterranean London which people don't get access to.''

The suave star thinks it is a once in a lifetime opportunity to play Bond alongside the likes of Javier Bardem and Ralph Fiennes, and was keen to do the iconic spy franchise justice.

He added to Time Out London magazine: ''[The cast wanted] to do the best we could. I know that sounds glib, but that's the truth. There aren't many movies like this being made in the world. Which have these sorts of resources and which can gather this kind of talent together, so we have to have a great script and a great story.''
