All things considered, it hasn’t been a bad few weeks for Daniel Craig.
The actor enjoying the warmth surrounding his final James Bond release No Time To Die, has become the 2,704th celebrity to be honoured with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in California.
It was unveiled outside 7007 Hollywood Boulevard, marking the fictional British spy’s code number. One of his predecessors as Bond, Sir Roger Moore is marked mere yards away.
The 53-year-old was introduced by James Bond producers Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, along with his co-star in the latest 007 outing, Rami Malek.
Craig, who has played James Bond since 2006, said “I never thought I would hear myself say this, but it’s an absolute honour to be walked all over in Hollywood.”
The star added: “If happiness was measured by the company we keep, then me being on this pavement surrounded by all of these legends makes me a very, very, very happy man. So thank you very much.”
In No Time To Die, Bond has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica. His peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter from the CIA turns up asking for help. The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology.
