British actor Daniel Craig inaugurated his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Wednesday, just a day before the premiere of his latest film as James Bond, “No Time To Die”, in the United States.
A week after the Spanish Alejandro Sanz revealed his star, the interpreter who has given life to Agent 007 in five films did the same during a night ceremony organized a few meters from the mythical entrance of the Dolby Theater, where the Oscars are awarded .
“The idea that my name is next to that of so many actors who have inspired me during my life is really quite incomprehensible and is something that I would never have imagined,” said the interpreter in statements collected by Variety magazine.
Specifically, Craig’s star is located next to that of another actor who played James Bond, the also British Roger Moore.
Rami Malek, Craig’s co-star in the last installment of the saga, was in charge of introducing the actor: “If you’re lucky enough to play a bad guy, you’d better make sure that the good guy is legendary. And this good guy. boy is the best.”
The inauguration of the star coincides, in addition to his farewell to the 007 saga, with the premiere of a documentary, “Being James Bond”, which narrates the 15 years in which Craig has played this famous character.
For its part, “No Time To Die” has been very well received by the public and raised more than 100 million dollars in its international premiere on October 1, in the absence of the film hitting US theaters this Friday.
The Hollywood Walk of Fame has recognized international celebrities since 1960 for their work and contribution to the entertainment industry.
