“Daniel Craig is a British cultural icon as is James Bond, the man he has portrayed in five 007 films.” We are thrilled to place his terrazzo Walk of Fame star next to the star of another famed actor who also portrayed James Bond, Roger Moore. Fans will be thrilled when they see that their stars are appropriately located at 7007 Hollywood Boulevard!”  stated Ana Martinez, Producer of the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Speaking to Variety Magazine ahead of the presentation, Daniel Craig said: “The Idea that my name will be alongside those of so many actors who have inspired me during my life is really quite incomprehensible and not something I could have ever imagined... So all I can really say is that it is an enormous, mind-boggling privilege to be have invited to join the road.”

Stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame are accepted by a committee and successful applicants have to pay $50,000 towards the installation and upkeep of the Walk of Fame. Previous James Bond actors with stars are Sir Roger Moore and Pierce Brosnan.
