About Daniel Craig

#1 online Daniel Craig Source (Membersite) , imdb movie bio , Daniel Wroughton Craig Wikipedia

Daniel Wroughton Craig (born 2 March 1968) is an English actor best known for playing British secret agent James Bond.

Craig achieved international fame when chosen as the sixth actor to play the role of Bond, replacing Pierce Brosnan. His debut in Casino Royale was highly acclaimed and earnt him a BAFTA award nomination, with the film becoming the highest grossing in the series to date.

Quantum of Solace followed two years later, with the third film Skyfall set for release in 2012, having been delayed due to MGM's financial troubles.

Craig is married to actress Rachel Weisz, his second wife. He has a daughter Ella by his first wife, Fiona Loudon.

In 2006 he joined the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Since taking the role of Bond, Craig has continued to appear in other films, starring in the English-language adaptation of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2011), and the mystery comedy Knives Out (2019).

After training at the National Youth Theatre and graduating from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in 1991, Craig began his career on stage. He made his film debut in the drama The Power of One (1992) and attracted attention with appearances in the historical television war drama Sharpe's Eagle (1993), and the family film A Kid in King Arthur's Court (1995). After appearing in Our Friends in the North, he gained roles in the biographical film Elizabeth (1998), the action film Lara Croft: Tomb Raider (2001), before appearing in the crime thrillers Road to Perdition (2002) and Layer Cake (2004).

Casino Royale, released in November 2006, was favourably received by critics and earned Craig a nomination for the BAFTA Award for Best Actor in a Leading Role. His starring role in Quantum of Solace (2008), Skyfall (2012), the series' highest-grossing film, Spectre (2015), and No Time to Die (2021), has brought further international attention. He has starred in other films, such as the fantasy film The Golden Compass (2007), the historical drama Defiance (2008), the science fiction Western Cowboys & Aliens (2011), and the heist film Logan Lucky (2017). The last earned him a Golden Globe Award nomination for Best Actor – Motion Picture Musical or Comedy. ...

Daniel Craig has a three-year-old daughter and stepson with his current wife, Oscar winner Rachel Weisz - and an adult daughter, Ella, with his ex-wife, actress Fiona Loudon.

The No Time To Die actor will make $100m (£73m) for his role in future Knives Out films, according to The Hollywood Reporter - but when it comes to money, the star prefers to "get rid of it or give it away before you go".

Craig's final appearance as 007 will come in No Time To Die, which will be released in the UK on 30 September 2021 following multiple delays due to COVID-19.

And despite playing one of the most iconic characters in film history, the intensely private Craig, who was born in Chester, said he had no interest in celebrity.

He said: "It's nothing I should complain about really because I also have huge benefits out of being who I am.

"But the fact is that privacy is a hugely important part of my life, and this being a… celebrity… makes me nervous, actually."
