Daniel Craig has finally got a
star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame, days before his
last movie as James Bond opens in the United States.

“No Time to Die” marks Craig’s fifth and final outing as the
suave British secret agent, ending a role that has spanned 15
years.

The actor’s pink and terrazzo star, the 2,704th on the Walk
of Fame at the appropriately numbered 7007 Hollywood Boulevard,
was placed next to that of the late Roger Moore, who played Bond
in seven movies from 1973 to 1985.

“It’s an absolute honour to be walked all over in Hollywood,”
said Craig. “Me being on this pavement surrounded by all of
these legends makes me a very, very, very happy man.”

‘Old school and classy’

Bond producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson, along
with Rami Malek who plays villain Safin in “No Time to Die,”
were on hand for the dedication ceremony.

Malek called Craig, 53, “old school and classy,” adding, “I can’t wait to see where (your career) takes you next.”

After three delays because of the coronavirus pandemic “No
Time to Die” took in a bumper $121 million at the box office on
its opening weekend in Britain and international movie theaters.

Craig’s next act will be playing Shakespeare’s Macbeth on
Broadway next March.
