Daniel Craig hid in flotation tank

(Cover) - EN Music - Daniel Craig admits it was nice to "get away from it all" by hiding in a flotation tank on the set of Skyfall.

The British actor reprises the role of suave spy James Bond for a third time in the new movie. Although Daniel loves working on the films, the schedule can get intense. To ensure he remained calm and focused he would descend to the bottom of a huge pool while filming in the UK.

"It was a very large flotation tank at the back of Pinewood Studios, it is an oversized swimming pool which is about 30ft deep," he explained to a UK TV show. "We had to spend a lot of time filming in there and it is very nice to just find a little dark corner and stick the respirator on and get away from it all. No one knows where you are."

Skyfall sees Daniel perform a series of daring stunts. The 44-year-old hunk was determined to get in shape to ensure he looked the part.

"If it says in the script that I have to take my shirt off then vanity kicks in," he laughed. "But also I am running most of the time. Bond doesn't just walk into a room and sit down - he has to jump through a window."
