The James Bond franchise has evidently been one of the most high-octane action film franchises. The franchise over the years has delivered some of the best hand to hand combat and bike or car chase sequences. In the latest instalment, which will also be Daniel Craig's last time reprising the iconic character, a major car chase sequence on the streets of Italy will be one of the biggest highlights of the film. However, Daniel Craig has revealed that he actually wasn't allowed to drive the car.

Daniel Craig was speaking to a leading news daily in the USA where he was asked about filming the high-speed car chase sequences. To this, the actor responded stating that actors are not allowed to act and drive at the same time anymore due to safety concerns.

Though, he expressed that he was sad for not being able to drive the car while filming chase sequences, he was happy that he was briefly allowed to drive the Aston Martin DB5. Daniel's stunt co-ordinator Mark Higgins performed all the dangerous car chase stunts while filming.
