Daniel was referencing the rooftop chase scene and revealed that he had a ‘genuine fear of heights’ before becoming Bond.

‘But I had to get up there, and sort of like incrementally go higher and higher and higher and higher and eventually I was sort of leaping out of windows onto moving busses it was quite an arc,’ he said.

Skyfall was next.
