About actor Daniel Craig


Daniel Craig is hailed as one of the finest actors of his generation on stage, screen and television.

November 2019 will see Craig in Rian Johnson’s Knives Out. A whodunit contemporary murder mystery, Craig stars as ‘Benoit Blanc’ alongside Jamie Lee Curtis, Michael Shannon, Chris Evans and Toni Colette. The film will be distributed by Lionsgate.

Daniel was most recently seen 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 (2015). Craig was seen returning as ‘James Bond’ for the third time, in the critically acclaimed box-office smash Skyfall (2012). He has also starred as Ian Fleming's 007 in Quantum of Solace (2008) and Casino Royale (2006).

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 Betrayal in which he starred opposite Rafe Spall and Rachel Weisz. Directed by Mike Nichols, the play ran for 14 weeks but grossed 17.5 Million USD 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 New York Theatre in Autumn 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.
