Daniel Craig is grateful to be immortalized among Hollywood’s heavyweights.
In Los Angeles Wednesday night, the 53-year-old No Time to Die actor gave a “short and sweet” speech at the unveiling of his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
I never thought I’d say this, but it’s an absolute honor to be walked all over in Hollywood,” Craig joked in his speech. If happiness was measured by the company we keep, then me being on this pavement surrounded by all of these legends makes me a very, very, very happy man. So thank you very much,” added Craig, whose star is placed next to fellow former James Bond actor Roger Moore.

He also told Variety, “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. All I can really say is that it is an enormous, mind-boggling privilege to have been invited to join the road.
Ana Martinez, producer of the Hollywood Walk of Fame, said in a statement, “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. The actor starred as Bond in five films, starting with Casino Royale (2006), followed by Quantum of Solace (2008), Skyfall (2012) and Spectre (2015).
