James Bond star Daniel Craig has said that he will continue to play the British spy for as long as he can.
The star - who is reprising the role for a third time in the latest film Skyfall - told the BBC he would "keep going until they tell me to stop".
He admitted there were big expectations for the film to be a success with the Bond franchise celebrating its 50th anniversary this year.
However, he said the team were "going to put on a good show".
Craig added although he wanted to leave his mark on the films, he was under no illusion he would have to eventually give up the 007 role.
"I know there'll be someone after me, and hopefully someone after them - I'm just trying to keep the series going."
There has been a four-year gap between the previous film Quantum of Solace (2008) and the new film. Production was temporarily suspended in April 2010 due to uncertainty over film company MGM's future amid financial troubles.
