British actor Daniel Craig opened his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Wednesday, just a day before the US premiere of the latest James Bond movie “No Time to Die.”
A week after Spaniard Alejandro Sanz revealed his star, the interpreter who gave life to Agent 007 in five films did the same during a night party organized a few meters from the legendary entrance to the Dolby Theater, where the Oscars are awarded.
“The idea that my name is close to the name of so many actors who have inspired me during my life is really completely incomprehensible and something I would have never imagined,” the interpreter said in comments compiled by Variety.
Specifically, Craig’s star is next door to another star who played James Bond, also Briton Roger Moore.
Rami Malek, Craig’s co-star in the latter part of the series, was responsible for introducing the actor: “If you’re lucky enough to play a bad guy, you better make sure that the good guy is legendary. And that good guy is the best.”
The star’s launch, as well as his farewell to the 007 saga, coincides with the premiere of a documentary called “Being James Bond,” which chronicles the fifteen years that Craig has played the famous character.
For its part, “No Time to Die” was well received by the audience and grossed more than $100 million in its international premiere of “No Time to Die.”
