From James Bond to the Old Vic, the multitalented actor has proven himself time and again in a wide range of roles in film, theater and television. DANIEL CRAIG (Sakharine) received a BAFTA nomination and an Empire Film Award for Casino Royale, the actor's James Bond debut that became the highest grossing in the history of the 007 franchise.

Born in 1968 in Chester and raised near Liverpool, Craig was first introduced to theater at the Liverpool Everyman and Playhouse Theatre. When he reached his late teens, he moved to London to join the National Youth Theatre, before continuing his training at the London Guildhall School of Music & Drama. Craig has since secured eclectic roles in television, theater and film, and is now regarded as one of Britain's finest actors.

Craig received a Film Independent Spirit Award nomination (for Best Supporting Male) for his role in Douglas McGrath's Infamous, which also starred Sandra Bullock and Gwyneth Paltrow. His multiple film credits also include his second outing as James Bond in Quantum of Solace, directed by Marc Forster; Sam Mendes' The Road to Perdition; Defiance, based on the true story of four brothers in Nazi-occupied Poland, directed by Edward Zwick; The Golden Compass, co-starring Nicole Kidman and Eva Green; Flashbacks of a Fool; Elizabeth; Hotel Splendide; I Dreamed of Africa; Love & Rage; Obsession; The Power of One; The Mother; Sylvia; The Jacket; Layer Cake; and Enduring Love.

The Adventures of Tintin marks Craig's fourth collaboration Steven Spielberg, after working with him on the Oscar -nominated Munich and on Jon Favreau's western sci-fi thriller Cowboys & Aliens, which the filmmaker produced. He also stars alongside Rachel Weisz and Naomi Watts in the upcoming film Dream House, directed by multi-award winner Jim Sheridan. He will next star opposite Rooney Mara and Christopher Plummer in David Fincher's highly anticipated adaptation of Stieg Larsson's best seller The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.

A highly accomplished stage actor, Craig's theater credits include leading roles in Hurlyburly, with the Peter Hall Company at the Old Vic Theatre; Angels in America, at The National Theatre; and in A Number at the Royal Court Theatre, alongside Michael Gambon. Last year, Craig trod the boards in a 12-week Broadway run, opposite Hugh Jackman, in A Steady Rain, a contemporary American play based on two Chicago cops who recount their conflicting stories of a harrowing experience.

Craig has numerous notable television credits, including the BBC adaptation of Michael Frayn's award-winning Copenhagen, Our Friends in the North, Sword of Honour, The Ice House, The Fortunes and Misfortunes of Moll Flanders, Kiss and Tell, Sharpe's Eagle and in the two-part BBC film Archangel, based on Robert Harris' book of the same name.
