Daniel Craig Bio: Daniel Wroughton Craig, (born 2 March 1968) is an English actor best known as the sixth actor to portray secret agent James Bond in the official film series from EON Productions. He made his screen debut as the character on 14 November 2006, to critical acclaim. Throughout his early career, actor Daniel Craig enjoyed the anonymity that comes with not being an A-list actor talent. That changed, however, when it was announced that he was considered for the role of James Bond in the adaptation of Ian Flemings' "Casino Royale" (2006), a reboot of the series widely considered to be the franchise's return to form. Craig denied rumors that he was offered a three-picture deal - at the time, Pierce Brosnan was still in the running to continue his reign as the famed British agent.
When Daniel was 9, the family would move to Hoylake, on the west coast of the Wirrel, looking out over Liverpool Bay. Here, having failed his 11-Plus, he was sent to a tough secondary modern. At Hilbre High School at nearby West Kirby (other former pupils include cyclist Chris Boardman and pop stars The Coral and Orchestral Manoevres In The Dark) he played rugby (he also played for Hoylake Rugby Club), supported the then near-invincible Liverpool FC and joined in with the school's plays, taking the lead in Oliver, Romeo And Juliet and Cinderella. Academically, however, he was not a good student.
