“Daniel Craig is a gamer,” the Daily Star quoted Gascoine as saying.

“The impression I got is that he spends a lot of time –playing games even though his other half is constantly telling him not to.

“He was quite reserved about doing our game at first because he didn’t want to be involved in a shoddy product.

“We had to show it to him three times before he would sign up. When we went to Pinewood Studios we were held up for half an hour because he was playing Guitar Hero.

“They were about half way through making Quantum Of Solace and he got to play some levels of the game that related to scenes he was actually –filming at the time.

“The fact that he was –evaluating our game made it very high stakes for us.

“It was quite tense but the end result made it a much better game,” he added.

The characters in the Quantum Of Solace game are modelled on actors in the new flick, and Craig’s first outing as 007 in Casino Royale.

“Craig is very serious about his roles,” said Gascoine.

“You can’t just go in there joking and laughing. You have to establish you are there to do business.

“If he says he doesn’t like it, you have to listen. He’s also built like a brick shithouse so you don’t argue with him,” he added.

The Quantum Of Solace film and game will be released on October 31, and it is available on most platforms.
