Daniel Craig – From Oliver to James Bond

From a school production of Oliver! to the new James Bond movie, Quantum of Solace, Daniel Craig has covered plenty of acting turf. Craig has seemingly replaced Jude Law as the world’s favourite British heart throb actor. Recently having been voted one of the sexiest men alive, and the best dressed man in Britain, he is taking the movie world by storm.

In recent years Craig has not only starred in the 007 movies Casino Royale, and Quantum of Solace, but has been seen in Layercake, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, Road To Perdition, The Golden Compass, and The Invasion, to mention just several.

Daniel Craig has shared the cinema screen with Hollywood lovelies such as Sienna Miller, Angelina Jolie, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Nicole Kidman (twice).

Those who were disappointed with the number of bedroom scenes in Quantum of Solace will be thrilled to know that Craig has promised steamier and more frequent bedroom scenes in the next James Bond film. Avid Bond fans would probably have also noticed the absence of long term characters Q and Moneypenny, along with the exciting James Bond gadgets.

Two of Bond’s signature statements were also missing from Quantum of Solace, being “Bond, James Bond” and “shaken, not stirred”. According to Craig, these phrases were filmed but just didn’t appear to work within the framework of the movie, so were left on the cutting room floor.

Daniel Craig has signed on for at least the next 3 James Bond movies, taking him up to and including James Bond 25.

When asked who Craig himself thought would make a great James Bond this was his answer:“I think Prince Harry would make a fantastic James Bond. He’s suave and just a little bit dangerous” 16th November 2008. Well, Daniel Craig may not be a prince but he certainly ticks all the right boxes for handsome, talented, wealthy, and well dressed. What more could we ask for? We have already been promised more steamy romance in the next James Bond movie.
