Craig finally get his star surrounded by Bond Family

In a rather fitting end to his tenure as 007, Daniel Craig has become the 2,704th celebrity to be awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The star was unveiled outside 7007 Hollywood Boulevard on Thursday, an obvious nod to his work as the super-spy James Bond. Craig is in good company as the star of fellow Bond, Sir Roger Moore, just meters away.

Craig said it was an “absolute honour to be walked all over in Hollywood”.

The actor was introduced by Bond producers Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, alongside his co-star Rami Malek who plays assassin Safin.

In reply, the 53-year-old said: “To Michael Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, I thank you from the depth of my heart, without you I would not be here today – thank you for those lovely words. Thank you to Rami for those beautiful, beautiful words.

“I never thought I would hear myself say this, but it’s an absolute honour to be walked all over in Hollywood.”

Malek, best known for his portrayal of Queen frontman Freddie Mercury, had nothing but nice things to say about Craig at the ceremony.

“We all know he’s a superb actor, he’s dedicated, he can handle all his own stunts with one hand tied behind his back and the other holding a Negroni,” Malek said.

He continues to say Craig has empathy for everyone around him.

“He has this ability to hold these two potentially opposing things at the same time – an incredible amount of talent and responsibility and an incredible warmth and acute awareness of what those around him need.”
