All the actors who played James Bond
Interpret to James Bond, the popular secret agent of MI6 (British intelligent service), is a privilege and also a great responsibility. Not so much at the beginning, but today the actor who accepts the challenge has to be very sure that he wants to put on the 007 suit. Because if the performance does not convince, it does not matter what you do later, many will remember it as failure of Bond.
In that situation you may be Tom hardy, of which it has already been said that he would be considering the idea of being the next James Bond in history. A role for which some see him without hesitation, while others quite the opposite despite liking his performances. But until it’s confirmed, what we have are all the actors who have officially been Agent 007.
So if you think so, let’s do a review. Of course, you should know before that although there are six officers, there were two more that few know: Barry Nelson in 1954 and David Niven in 1967. Don’t worry, it may be the first time you’ve read their names. However, if you are a Bond fan, these will sound familiar to you.
Sean Connery (1962-167)
Sean Connery He is the genuine James Bond, the first to play Agent 007 and help shape everything that the popular spy conveyed in Ian Flemming’s novels. An elegant, cold, calculated and implacable guy with that characteristic seducer point (although in some films he goes too far).
In addition, Sean Connery can also be proud to have played some of the best films in the entire series with titles such as’ Dr. No ‘,’ Goldfinger ‘,’ From Russia with love ‘or’ Never say never again ‘are mythical for every fan. The best Bond? Surely yes.
George Lazenby (1969)
George LazenbyAn Australian-born actor, he is neither one of the most popular nor one of the best. Even so, it does have as its main merit having been the first non-British actor to play the role Of agent 007. In addition, being the youngest, at only 29 years old, he already put on the suit, always impeccable, with which he appears in all the films.
However, after Sean Connery’s work it was very difficult to stand out. Which was added to other conditions and only played the role in a movie: “On her majesty’s secret service.” If you remembered, then you can say that you are a die-hard Bond fan.
Roger Moore (1973-1985)
Roger moore He has been one of the longest-lived Bond and one of the most remembered by any lover of his stories. It is difficult to say whether or not it was the best. Perhaps it is easy to admit that it has been second best James Bond although he played against him that the scripts of his films were not as good as other of his rivals for the title.
Despite all this, many of us grew up and enjoyed tapes such as ‘Live and Let Die’, ‘The Man with the Golden Gun’, ‘The Spy Who Loved Me’, ‘Moonraker’, ‘For Your Eyes Only’ , ‘Look to kill’ and ‘Panorama to kill’.
Timothy Dalton (1986-1993)
Timothy Dalton played Bond in just two movies, ‘High tension’ and ‘License to kill’, and if he is remembered for something it is for being one of the most impulsive of all those who gave life to the secret agent.
It was not a bad 007, but the truth is that everything that Sean Connery and Roger Moore meant for the character weighed too much. So, in an unfair way, he happened to be one of the lucky ones who played Jame Bond, but little else. His films were ‘High Tension’ and ‘License to Kill’.
Pierce Brosnan (1995-2002)
Pierce Brosnan for his part took on the role of Bond in the 90s with the mission of putting the secret agent back on the front line. A complicated challenge that with films like ‘Golden Eye’, ‘Tomorrow never dies’, ‘The world is never enough’ and ‘Die another day’ he achieved.
The 007 figure was reborn with him and sparked interest again in the secret agent until the arrival of the next Bond, Daniel Craig. The last one so far.
Daniel Craig (2006-2020)
The last Bond it was not easy to take on the role. Daniel Craig it supposed certain changes with respect to the physical image that one had of the secret agent. To begin with, he was a blond guy with blue eyes, he was not the tallest of all and, furthermore, he was noticeably more muscular than the rest.
What may seem absurd were inconvenient for him. Despite this, the actor knew how to turn everything around and together with other details that he also had to fight against, he managed to give 007 its own value. So much so that right now it is considered the best Bond for all those who did not see a movie some from Sean Connery and the second for those who do.
What is clear is that he has played the secret agent for fourteen years and to his credit there are some of the best films of the entire saga: ‘Skyfall’, ‘Casino Royale’, ‘Quantum of Solace’ or ‘Specter’ and ‘No time to die’ will be released shortly.
