Daniel Craig Career

Craig auditioned for and was accepted by, the National Youth Theatre in 1984. He made his debut in the company’s London staging of William Shakespeare’s Troilus and Cressida and later toured Spain and Russia in other productions.

In 1988 he was accepted to the Guildhall School of Music and Drama at the Barbican and graduated in 1991, having already been cast in a supporting role in the film The Power of One (1992), an antiapartheid tale. Craig then garnered a string of supporting and guest parts in television films and serials. In 1993 he played several roles in the Royal National Theatre’s production of Tony Kushner’s AIDS elegy Angels in America and in 1994 played one of a trio of 17th-century carousers in a Women’s Playhouse Trust staging of Aphra Behn’s The Rover.

He then appeared as a stableboy mooning over a princess (played by Kate Winslet) in A Kid in King Arthur’s Court (1995), a Disney film adaptation of a Mark Twain novel.

Craig came to wider attention in England as a troubled young man in the relationship drama miniseries Our Friends in the North (1996); as the highwayman paramour of the title character in The Fortunes and Misfortunes of Moll Flanders (1996), a raunchy television adaptation of the novel by Daniel Defoe; and as French aviator Henri Guillaumet in the Antoine de Saint-Exupéry biopic Saint-Ex (1996).

He played a Jesuit involved in the Babington Plot to assassinate the queen in the lavish Elizabeth (1998) and the criminal lover of the painter Francis Bacon in Love Is the Devil: Study for a Portrait of Francis Bacon (1998).

In the next decade, Craig appeared more frequently in Hollywood fare. He assumed supporting roles as a land manager in I Dreamed of Africa (2000), as the romantic interest of the title adventuress in Lara Croft: Tomb Raider (2001), and as the son of a gangster played by Paul Newman in Road to Perdition (2002).

Craig’s casting in Casino Royale, 2006 revamp of the James Bond franchise, was controversial, as he did not fit the physical type established in Ian Fleming’s novels and was embodied to various degrees by such actors as Sean Connery and Pierce Brosnan. However, most critics were silenced by his brooding virile take on the martini-swilling spook. He reprised the role in Quantum of Solace (2008), Skyfall (2012), and Spectre (2015).
