Daniel Craig is back in his fifth and final outing as superspy James Bond. Here’s every new and returning character in Cary Fukunaga’s No Time To Die.
Daniel Craig is back for his final film as the iconic agent 007 in No Time To Die and the cast of characters supporting him in his last outing is a mix of familiar faces and franchise newcomers. Craig first debuted as James Bond in 2006’s Casino Royale and his casting was not without controversy. From his blonde hair to the fact that he wasn’t instantly recognizable, hardcore Bond fans took umbrage with Craig’s casting. Luckily, he went on to prove the naysayers wrong.
Directed by Martin Campbell, Casino Royale was critically acclaimed for its grittier and more straightlaced take on Ian Fleming’s beloved spy. Now, Campbell’s film is seen as the beginning of what would be a reinvention of sorts for the character, with Casino Royale laying the groundwork for changes to James Bond that will come to a head in No Time To Die. From Bond’s emotional journey with lover (and traitor) Vesper Lynd, played by Eva Green, to his haunted and world-weary demeanor, the 21st Bond film was a new beginning for the franchise.
