Daniel Craig, a former James Bond actor, received the same royal distinction as Agent 007.
No Time to Die from last year was Daniel Craig’s final outing as James Bond, but 007’s legacy endures. Princess Royal conferred the Order of St. Michael and St. George Companion title on Craig earlier this week while she was present at Windsor Castle. James Bond, the superspy from Ian Fleming, also holds this distinction. The news was sent out by the Royal Family.
Daniel Craig made his 007 debut in the 2006 film Casino Royale. He later appeared as the secret agent again in the next four films: Quantum of Solace, Skyfall, Spectre, and No Time to Die. No Time To Die, which was released during the COVID-19 epidemic and garnered $774.2 million at the global box office, marked the end of his tenure as an iconic role for him.
The successor to Daniel Craig as James Bond has not yet been cast, despite recent hints from producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli that he will be a “thirty-something” actor. The next 007 actor is anticipated to portray the character in several films given that Craig carried the brand for 15 years.
