LOS ANGELES – Daniel Craig finally got a star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame on Wednesday, days before his last film as James Bond in the US.
“No Time to Die” marks Craig’s fifth and final appearance as a polite British secret agent, ending a 15-year role.
The actor’s pink and terrazzo star was placed on the appropriately numbered 7007 Hollywood Boulevard next to that of the late Roger Moore, who played Bond in seven films from 1973 to 1985.
It is the 2,704. Star on the Walk of Fame.
“It’s an absolute privilege to have been walking around Hollywood,” said Craig. “I’m surrounded by all these legends on this sidewalk, which makes me a very, very, very happy man.”
Bond producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson and Rami Malek, who plays the villain Safin in “No Time to Die,” attended the inauguration ceremony.
Called Craig, 53, “old school and class,” Malek added, “Can’t wait to see where (your career) takes you next.”
After three delays due to the coronavirus pandemic, “No Time to Die” raked in a record $ 121 million at box offices on its opening weekend in the UK and international cinemas.
Craig’s next act will be Shakespeare’s Macbeth on Broadway next March.
