Daniel Craig is hailed as one of the finest actors of his generation on stage, screen, and television. Last year Craig returned for his fifth and final turn as ‘Bond’ in NO TIME TO DIE. The film was nominated for Outstanding British Film of the Year at the 2022 BAFTA Film Awards and won the Academy Award® for Original Song.

In 2019 Craig was seen in Rian Johnson’s hugely successful film, KNIVES OUT. A whodunit contemporary murder mystery, Daniel starred as ‘Benoit Blanc’ alongside Jamie Lee Curtis, Michael Shannon, Chris Evans, and Toni Colette. Craig’s standout performance earned him a Golden Globe Award nomination. He will reprise his role for the sequel – GLASS ONION: A KNIVES OUT MYSTERY – alongside a stellar cast including Kathryn Hahn, Dave Bautista, Edward Norton, Kate Hudson, and Jessica Henwick.                                                    

2018 saw Daniel star as ‘Obie Hardison’ in KINGS with Halle Berry and Rick Ravanello. Set in the violent aftermath of Rodney King’s trial in 1992, the story follows a foster family in South Central and the implications the verdict has on their lives. Prior to this, Daniel was seen in Steven Soderbergh’s LOGAN LUCKY as ‘Joe Bang’ alongside Adam Driver, Channing Tatum, and Sebastian Stan. The story concerns two brothers who attempt to pull off a heist during a NASCAR race in North Carolina.

2015 saw Daniel star in the eagerly anticipated SPECTRE. Craig was seen returning as ‘James Bond’ for the third time, in the critically acclaimed box office smash SKYFALL. He has also starred as ‘Bond’ in QUANTUM OF SOLACE and CASINO ROYALE. In 2011 Craig starred in THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO directed by David Fincher, he played the lead character Mikael Blomkvist opposite Rooney Mara. Craig’s earlier film credits include LOVE AND RAGE, OBSESSION, THE POWER OF ONE, ROAD TO PERDITION, LAYER CAKE, INFAMOUS and Steven Spielberg’s Oscar®-nominated film MUNICH.

Craig is also an accomplished stage actor and in 2013 starred in the critically acclaimed Broadway show BETRAYALin which he starred opposite Rafe Spall and Rachel Weisz. Directed by Mike Nichols, the play ran for 14 weeks and grossed $17.5million in that time. Daniel’s most recent theatre venture was the off- Broadway production of OTHELLO alongside David Oyelowo and directed by Sam Gold, at the New York Theatre in the autumn of 2016. In 2009 Daniel starred in a twelve-week Broadway run of A STEADY RAIN. Craig played opposite Hugh Jackman in this contemporary American play. Craig’s other theatre credits include leading roles in HURLYBURLY with the Peter Hall Company at the Old Vic, ANGELS IN AMERICA at The National Theatre and A NUMBER at the Royal Court alongside Michael Gambon.
