Hollywood star Daniel Craig was named a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame following the release of his latest James Bond film, No Time to Die. Craig’s star is just yards from the late Sir Roger Moore, who played 007 in seven films from 1973 to 1985, according to femalefirst.co.uk. The actor, who first played Bond in the 2006 film Casino Royale, said that “walking around Hollywood is an absolute honor.”
The 53-year-old star added: “To Michael Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, I thank you from the bottom of my heart, without you I would not be here today, thank you for these wonderful words. Thank you Rami for these wonderful, wonderful words. “
“I never thought I would hear myself say this, but it is an absolute honor for me to walk around Hollywood.”
Craig added that he was “very happy” to be his star among Hollywood icons on the Walk of Fame.
He said, “If happiness is measured by the company we make up, then being on this sidewalk surrounded by all these legends makes me a very, very, very happy person. So thank you very much. “
Actor Rami Malek, who plays the villainous Safin in the latest Bond film, praised Craig for his abilities as an actor and colleague.
He said: “We all know that he is an excellent actor, he is dedicated to his work, he can do all his stunts, one hand is tied behind his back and the other is holding Negroni. But he is just as demanding of his skills as of empathy for everyone. Around him.”
“He has the ability to hold on to these two potentially opposite things at the same time – an incredible amount of talent and responsibility, as well as an incredible warmth and keen understanding of what others need.”
