Casino Royale star is offered a pirate copy of his own film

Bond star Daniel Craig was yesterday asked to buy a 75p pirated DVD of his movie Casino Royale.

The actor had just flown into Beijing for the Chinese premiere when he was approached.

‘Someone tried to sell me a copy last night,’ he tells The Daily Mirror. ‘I was wearing a hat and glasses so they didn’t recognise me.

‘It saddens me. Going to the cinema is a great experience. You’re missing out by watching a bad copy of a DVD.

‘As far as I’m concerned you get 50 per cent more by going to watch it on the big screen.’

Casino Royale is the first out of 21 Bond films to be screened in China.
