The British actor who played James Bond for 15 years was knighted in the Order of Saints Michael and George, as was the movie 007.
British actor Daniel Craig, who played James Bond on the big screen for 15 years, was today made a knight of the Order of Saints Michael and George, a rare honor also enjoyed by Ian Fleming’s fictional “Agent 007”, who he played for first time in the cinema Sean Connery, in 1963.
The 54-year-old actor, who appeared in five James Bond films, received the award from Princess Anne, sister of King Charles, at a ceremony held at Windsor Castle.
“We’ve been waiting for you…” read the royal family’s official Twitter account, echoing one of the films’ most famous lines.
We’ve been expecting you…
