Craig reportedly shot the cameo at England's Pinewood Studios, where both "Spectre" and "The Force Awakens" filmed. With the two sets not far apart from each other, it probably took Craig no time at all to don the stormtrooper costume.
"He did it for sh--s and grins," a source tells EW.
In fact, there had already been rumors that Craig had a small role in the movie, but when EW asked him about earlier this year, the actor angrily denied it. "Why would I ever bother doing something like that? F---ing hell! Pffft. Play an extra in another movie." Ha, well, Craig is a very good actor.
