Daniel Craig’s Daughter Ella, Craig achieved international fame when chosen as the sixth actor to play the role of Bond, replacing Pierce Brosnan. Though initially greeted with skepticism, his debut in Casino Royale was highly acclaimed and earned him a BAFTA award nomination, with the film becoming the highest grossing in the series to date. Quantum of Solace followed two years later, with the third film Skyfall, set for release in 2012, having been delayed due to MGM’s financial troubles.
Craig is married to actress Rachel Weisz, his second wife. He has a daughter Ella by his first wife, Fiona Loudon. In 2006 he joined the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Since taking the role of Bond, Craig has continued to appear in other films, most recently starring in the English language adaptation of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
Craig made a guest appearance as Bond in the opening ceremony of the London 2012 Olympic Games, acting alongside Queen Elizabeth II.
