Daniel Craig is “incredibly proud” to have an American passport.

The British actor has confirmed he is a US citizen following a lot of speculation and is pleased to be part of the population of immigrants which the country is “built upon”.

Speaking at the Knives Out premiere in Los Angeles, he told People magazine: “Everybody in this country’s an immigrant.

“I’m incredibly proud to be part of this, to have an American passport.”

“That’s what the country’s built upon. We can’t forget it. We can’t just dismiss it … but it’s difficult, and it takes thought, and it takes smart people thinking about it instead of dividing people along party lines … and also along this anger that kind of builds up.

“It needs to be discussed… and that’s hard.

“Good things are hard to do. I’m incredibly proud to be part of this, to have an American passport and call myself an immigrant in this country.”

And the 51-year-old actor is delighted to live in modern America.

He added: “I’m part of an amazing period in history that created this country and I’m proud to be a part of it.”
