Not expecting to return after the departure of Timothy Dalton anyway, Caroline harbored no ill feelings towards her friend, saying: "I am just glad it has gone to someone I love and who needs the money!".

1"As for Daniel Craig as Bond, I think it is an absolutely brilliant choice. He is butch, male, attractive and a bloody good actor. He was by far the most plausible choice" [on Casino Royale (2006)].
