Daniel Craig, a renowned English actor, has captivated audiences around the world with his stellar performances. While his role as James Bond in Casino Royale cemented his fame, Craig has also showcased his comedic talents in films such as Knives Out.

Regardless of the genre, Craig consistently delivers excellence and entertainment, making him a standout actor in the industry. SSPDaily has prepared five little-known facts about this talented actor.

Dynamic start with Shakespeare

Before his iconic portrayal of James Bond, Craig's acting career began with Shakespeare's plays. At the age of 14, he demonstrated his talent by playing the lead role in his school's production of Romeo and Juliet. Craig's passion for the stage led him to the National Youth Theatre in London, where he made his professional stage debut as Agamemnon in Troilus and Cressida.

Waiter by day, aspiring actor by night

Craig's rise to fame was not without its challenges. When he started his acting career at the National Youth Theatre, he faced financial difficulties. To make ends meet, Craig worked as a waiter while touring with the company.

The "longest" Bond

By portraying the iconic character of James Bond, Craig set a remarkable record as the longest-serving actor to play Bond to date. With an impressive run from 2006 to 2021, Craig surpassed previous record holders. In particular, he exceeded Sean Connery, who starred for nine years in a row, winning Bond's place in the hearts of fans.

An intimate wedding

Craig's wedding to his fellow actress Rachel Weisz, which took place in 2011, is notable for its secrecy. According to The Guardian, the couple chose an intimate ceremony with only four close guests. They included two friends, Weiss's son Henry, who was five at the time, from her previous relationship, and her teenage daughter Ella from Craig's previous affair.

Bonds of friendship

Daniel Craig's connection with his fellow actor Mark Strong goes beyond cinematic collaboration. Strong, known for his roles in films such as the Kingsman series, has a long-standing friendship with Craig. The bond is so deep that Craig is proud to call himself the godfather of Strong's son. Together they have shared many personal moments, including a humorous story about Strong's unsuccessful audition for the role of a Bond villain and a night of unforgettable fun.
