Appears as James Bond in:
Daniel Wroughton Craig was born 2 March 1968 in Chester, Cheshire, England. He was brought up in Liverpool and moved to London when he was 16 to join the National Youth Theatre, later landing a spot at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama.
Daniel's movie career began with The Power of Onein 1992, and he later gained recognition with the hit TV series Our Friends in the North. Later credits included the Sam Mendes movie Road to Perdition, Sylvia, and Enduring Love. He starred in Layer Cakein 2004, a role that got him attention from the Bond films' producers.
After 18 long months of speculation for a successor to Pierce Brosnan, it was announced that he had the role on the HMS President in London on October 14, 2005. Craig admitted he found out that he was playing Bond in a Baltimore Supermarket. Barbra Broccoli called him and simply said "Over to you, kiddo!". He then reportedly got drunk.
The choice of Craig was controversial when announced in 2005, and many initially didn't agree with the producers, although Sean Connery, Pierce Brosnan, Roger Moore and Timothy Dalton publicly supported the decision. Despite some doubts at first, Craig's performance as the super-agent in Casino Royale earned him critical acclaim from critics and many fans alike.
