Background and Age

Daniel Wroughton Craig was born on March 2, 1968, in Chester, England. Craig grew up close Liverpool, and appreciated setting off to the theater with his mom and sisters. A significant number of his mom's companions were actors, and he felt attracted to the profession.

Craig moved to London when he was 16 to join the National Youth Theater, and after that studied at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. In the wake of graduating, Craig made his film debut in The Power of One in 1992, a 1950s drama set in South Africa.

The drama delighted in winning a few noteworthy honors in the year following its broadcast, including two British Academy Television Awards, two Royal Television Society Awards, and four Broadcasting Press Guild Awards.

Career and Net Worth

Proving the cynics wrong, Craig made Bond history with 2006's Casino Royale. He revived the long-running film establishment with his cutting edge take on the super covert operative, depicted by one commentator as an honorable hooligan. Casino Royale turned into the highest-netting Bond film to date, winning nearly $600 million ticket sales around the world. Craig featured as 007 in the following film, Quantum of Solace, in 2008.

2012 saw the arrival of another Bond film Skyfall, a Sam Mendes-helmed project co-featuring Javier Bardem, Naomie Harris, Ben Whishaw, Ralph Fiennes and Judi Dench as M. The praised project was a film industry marvel, making more than $1.1 billion globally.

In July 2019, it was announced that Craig would reprise his role as James Bond in Bond 25. It will be the last Bond film for Craig as his character is expected to give up the 007 agent status to Nomi, played by British African actress Lashana Lynch.
