Two days before his fifth and final James Bond film will open in theatres across the US, actor Daniel Craig (53) will receive the honor of getting his very own star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame. His will become the 2,704th star.
He is the third Bond actor to receive this honor following Roger Moore and Pierce Brosnan and his star will also be placed next to former 007 Roger Moore.
“Daniel Craig is a British cultural icon, as is James Bond, the man he has portrayed in five 007 films”, Ana Martinez, producer of the Hollywood Walk of Fame, said in a statement. “We are thrilled to place his terrazzo Walk of Fame star next to the star of another famed actor who also portrayed James Bond, Roger Moore.”
The ceremony is set to take place on October 6 at 6:30 P.M. PDT. The star will be dedicated in the category of Motion Pictures at 7007 Hollywood Boulevard. Rami Malek, who stars as the villain opposite Craig in “No Time to Die”, will deliver a speech at the ceremony to honor his costar, as will movie producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli.
