'Skyfall' Stars Daniel Craig, Dame Judi Dench And Javier Bardem On 'The Graham Norton Show' (PICTURES)

With the general release of the hotly-anticipated new James Bond movie, 'Skyfall', on Friday, it's been a busy week for the superstar cast members.

A whirlwind of premieres, parties and publicity culminated in the star-studded first-showing at the Royal Albert Hall on Tuesday.

But there's no rest in store yet as these pics show. Bond, M, and the evil Raoul Silva (aka Daniel Craig, Dame Judi Dench and Javier Bardem) have been recording Friday night's appearance on 'The Graham Norton Show'.

According to the Radio Times, Craig discussed how he was initially approached for the role: “I was very reluctant to say yes to Bond.

“I couldn’t understand why I was being asked. It was off my radar. It was a very nice offer but I thought they had the wrong guy.

"They were quite persistent.”

Well, we're glad they were because we think he makes a bloody great Bond.

'The Graham Norton Show' is on BBC One, Friday, 10:25pm
