James Bond actor Daniel Craig gets a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame: “It’s an absolute honor to be walked everywhere …”
Daniel Craig finally got a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Wednesday, days before his last film as James Bond opens in the United States.
No Time to Die marks Craig’s fifth and final outing as a suave British secret agent, ending a role that has spanned 15 years.
The actor’s pink and terrazzo star, the numbered 2,704th on the Walk of Fame at 7007 Hollywood Boulevard, has been placed next to that of the late Roger Moore, who played Bond in seven films from 1973 to 1985.
âIt’s an absolute honor to be traveled all over Hollywood,â Craig said. “Being on this sidewalk surrounded by all these legends makes me a very, very, very happy man.”
Bond producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson, as well as Rami Malek who plays villainous Safin in No Time to Die, were on hand for the dedication ceremony.
Malek called Craig, 53, “old school and classy,” adding, “I can’t wait to see where (your career) takes you next.”
After three delays due to the coronavirus pandemic, No Time to Die won $ 121 million at the box office during its opening weekend in Britain and in international cinemas.
Daniel Craig’s next act will play Shakespeare’s Macbeth on Broadway next March.
