Hollywood star Daniel Craig has been honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame following the release of his final “James Bond” film, “No Time to Die”. Craig’s star is located just a few yards away from the late Sir Roger Moore, who played 007 in seven films between 1973 and 1985, reports femalefirst.co.uk. The actor, who first played Bond in the 2006 film ‘Casino Royale’, said it was “an absolute honor to walk around in Hollywood”.
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 those lovely words. Thank you Rami for those beautiful, beautiful words.” “
“I never thought I’d hear myself say this, but it’s an absolute honor to be everywhere in Hollywood.”
Craig said he was a “very happy person” to have his star among Hollywood icons on the Walk of Fame.
He added: “If happiness is measured by the company we keep, then being on this sidewalk surrounded by all these legends makes me a very, very, very happy man. So thank you very much.”
Actor Rami Malek, who played the villainous Safin in the latest Bond film, praised Craig for his ability as an actor and a collaborator.
He said: “We all know he’s a fantastic actor, he’s dedicated, he can handle all his stunts with one hand tied behind his back and the other holding the Negroni. But he’s all about his craft. She is as sharp as she is about empathy for everyone around her.”
“He has the ability to hold these two potentially opposing things at the same time – an incredible amount of talent and responsibility and an incredible warmth and intense awareness of those around him.”
