For Daniel Craig, the sexuality of his “Knives Out” character is only an extension of the actual world.

"You are meant to represent life. And those individuals in my life are reflected in that relationship, "In an interview with The Sunday Times that was published on Sunday, Craig, 54, spoke about detective Benoit Blanc, the role he played in Knives Out and its upcoming sequel, Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery.

"It's typical. But we don't turn it into a song and dance. The timing seems good, "he continued.

According to writer-director Rian Johnson, Blanc's sexual orientation "simply made sense to Daniel and me," although it wasn't intended to be the main emphasis of the movie.

Craig, who played investigator Blanc again in Glass Onion, told news sources that he doesn't want viewers to "get politically hung up" about his character's nonchalant coming out in the follow-up.

The Golden Globe nominee remarked, "It's all good. For me, it's actually better if we don't make a big deal out of it since it just made sense.

Benoit is discovered to be cohabitating with a male partner in Johnson's follow-up to his ensemble mystery-comedy from 2019. Hugh Grant opens the door at their London apartment in a memorable appearance.

Along with Kate Hudson, Leslie Odom Jr., Edward Norton, Janelle Monáe, Kathryn Hahn, Jessica Henwick, Madelyn Cline, and Dave Bautista, Craig also stars in the movie Glass Onion.

Grant, 62, as well as Serena Williams, Natasha Lyonne, Ethan Hawke, Angela Lansbury, Yo-Yo Ma, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and Stephen Sondheim all make appearances in the film.

In the follow-up, Miles Bron, a tech millionaire (Norton, 53), invites a group of pals to visit his private island, but one of them quickly dies.

The idea for a sequel was first floated in February 2020, and it was subsequently confirmed in March 2021 after Netflix paid more than $400 million to acquire the franchise's rights. In Greece, filming on the movie started in June 2021 and ended in September of the same year.

Netflix began streaming Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery.
