Daniel Wroughton Craig[3] (/kreɪɡ/; born 2 March 1968) is an English actor, best known for playing British secret agent James Bond since 2006.[4]

Craig is an alumnus of the National Youth Theatre and graduated from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London, beginning his career on stage. His early on-screen appearances were in the films ElizabethThe Power of One and A Kid in King Arthur's Court, and on Sharpe's Eagle and Zorro in television.

 

HIDE TEXT


His appearances in the British films Love Is the DevilThe Trench and Some Voices attracted the industry's attention, leading to roles in bigger productions such as Lara Croft: Tomb RaiderRoad to PerditionLayer Cake and Munich.

Craig achieved international fame when chosen as the seventh actor to play the role of James Bond, replacing Pierce Brosnan. Though he was initially greeted with scepticism, his debut in Casino Royale was highly acclaimed and earned him aBAFTA award nomination, with the film becoming the highest-grossing in the series at the time. Quantum of Solace followed two years later. His third Bond film, Skyfall, premiered in 2012 and is now the highest-grossing film in the series, as well as the eighth highest-grossing film of all time.[5][6]

In 2006, Craig joined the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Since taking the role of Bond, he has continued to appear in other films, most recently starring in the English language adaptation of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Craig made a guest appearance as Bond in the opening ceremony of the London 2012 Olympic Games, alongside Queen Elizabeth II.

Early life

Craig was born in West Cheshire Hospital, in Chester, England.[7] His mother, Carol Olivia (née Williams), was an art teacher, and his father, Timothy John Wroughton Craig, was the landlord of the pubs "Ring o' Bells" (in Frodsham) and the "Boot Inn" (WillingtonTarporley), having served as a midshipman in the Merchant Navy.[8][9][10] Both of Craig's parents were of half-Welsh descent.[11]

Craig was brought up on the Wirral Peninsula,[12] near Liverpool, and attended primary school in Frodsham, and later Holy Trinity Primary School[13] in Hoylake. After failing his Eleven plus, Craig (along with his older sister, Lea) attended Hilbre High School in nearby West Kirby.[14] Upon finishing his compulsory secondary school education at the age of sixteen, he joined Calday Grange Grammar School briefly as a sixth form student.[15] Craig played for Hoylake RFC Rugby Union Club.[16] He began acting in school plays at the age of six, and was introduced to serious acting by attending the Everyman theatre in nearby Liverpool city centre with his mother.[17] Craig moved to London when he was sixteen to join the National Youth Theatre.[10] He attended the Guildhall School of Music and Drama at the Barbican and graduated in 1991 after three years of study under Colin McCormack.

Career

Overview

Craig appeared as Joe in the Royal National Theatre's production of Tony Kushner's Angels in America in November 1993. Also in 1993, Craig appeared in an episode of Yorkshire Television's Heartbeat, which aired 31 October 1993.[18] An early starring role was as 'Geordie' in the BBC's 1996 drama Our Friends in the North, with early film roles being as Angelina Jolie's rival and love interest in Lara Croft: Tomb Raider (2001), before appearing in Sam Mendes's movie Road to Perdition (2002), with Tom Hanks and Paul Newman. Other leading film roles include Sword of Honour (2001), The Mother (2003) with Anne ReidSylvia (2003) with Gwyneth PaltrowLayer Cake (2004) with Sienna MillerEnduring Love (2004) with Rhys IfansSteven Spielberg's Munich (2005) with Eric BanaInfamous and Casino Royale (2006), The Golden Compass (2007), Quantum of SolaceDefiance (2008), Cowboys & Aliens (2011), The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2011), and Skyfall (2012).

James Bond: 2005–present

In 2005, Craig was contracted by Eon Productions to portray James Bond. He stated he "was aware of the challenges" of the Bond franchise which he considered "a big machine" that "makes a lot of money". He aimed at bringing more "emotional depth" to the character.[19] Born in 1968, Craig is the first actor to portray James Bond to have been born after the Bond series started, and after the death of Ian Fleming, the novels' writer. Significant controversy followed the decision, as it was doubted if the producers had made the right choice. Throughout the entire production period Internet campaigns expressed their dissatisfaction and threatened to boycott the film in protest.[20]

The 5-foot-10-inch (178 cm) blond Craig was not considered by some protesters to fit the tall, dark Bond portrayed by the previous Bond actors, and to which viewers had apparently become accustomed.[21] The Daily Mirror ran a front page news story critical of Craig, with the headline, "The Name's Bland – James Bland".[22] Although the choice of Craig was controversial, numerous actors publicly voiced their support, most notably, four of the five actors who had previously portrayed Bond – Pierce Brosnan,[23] Timothy DaltonSean Connery and Roger Moore – called his casting a good decision. George Lazenby has since voiced his approval of Craig also.[24] Clive Owen, who had been linked to the role, also spoke in defence of Craig.[25]

The first film, Casino Royale, premiered 14 November 2006, and grossed a total of US$594,239,066 worldwide, which made it the highest-grossing Bond film to date.[26] After the film was released, Craig's performance was highly acclaimed.[27] As production of Casino Royale reached its conclusion, producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli announced that pre-production work had already begun on the 22nd Bond film. After several months of speculation as to the release date, Wilson and Broccoli officially announced on 20 July 2006, that the follow-up film,Quantum of Solace,[28] was to be released on 7 November 2008, and that Craig would play Bond with an option for a third film.[29] On 25 October 2007, MGM CEO Harry Sloan revealed at the Forbes Meet II Conference that Craig had signed on to make four more Bond films, through to Bond 25.[30]

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences extended a membership invitation to Craig in 2006 .[31] Craig sliced off the top of one of his fingers 12 June 2008, while filming Quantum of Solace.[32] The accident was one of a string of incidents surrounding the shoot, including a fire at one of the sets in Pinewood Studios, a car crash that left the stunt driver in a serious condition, and an Aston Martin skidding off the road and plunging into Lake Garda while being transported to the set in Italy.[33]

Craig at the 81st Academy Awards in 2009.

Craig describes his portrayal of Bond as an anti-hero: "The question I keep asking myself while playing the role is, 'Am I the good guy or just a bad guy who works for the good side?' Bond's role, after all, is that of an assassin when you come down to it. I have never played a role in which someone's dark side shouldn't be explored. I don't think it should be confusing by the end of the film, but during the film you should be questioning who he is."[34] Craig has stated that his own favourite previous Bond actor is Sean Connery, but says, "I'd never copy somebody else. I would never do an impression of anybody else or try and improve on what they did. That would be a pointless exercise for me." His own favourite Bond film is From Russia with Love.[35] On a James Bond-centric episode of The South Bank Show, Connery divulged his thoughts on Craig's casting as Bond, whom he described as "fantastic, marvelous in the part". When told that Craig had taken particular note of his performances, Connery said that he was "flattered" and that Craig really gets the "danger element" to Bond's character.[36]

The 19 April 2010-release of Craig's expected third Bond film (the 23rd overall in the series) was delayed, because of financial troubles with MGM,[37] but the film (Skyfall) was released on 23 October 2012, and was part of the year-long celebration of the 50th anniversary of Dr. No.[38] On 8 September 2012, Bond producers announced Craig had signed on for two future Bond films and not five as previously reported. This would bring his total to five films, which would be two fewer than Roger Moore's record of seven.

Other projects

In 1999, Craig starred as Richard in a TV drama called Shockers: The Visitor. He portrayed Lord Asriel in The Golden Compass, the 2007 film adaptation of Philip Pullman's novel.[39] Eva Green, who played Bond girl Vesper Lynd in Casino Royale, also starred in the film, although she did not appear in any scenes with Craig. In a stage version of the book, Asriel had previously been played by Timothy Dalton, one of Craig's predecessors in the role of James Bond.

In early 2001, Craig expressed an interest in being a part of the Star Trek franchise, professing his love of the series to the World Entertainment News Network and a desire to have a "stint in the TV show or a film. It's been a secret ambition of mine for years."[40] On 16 March 2007, Craig made a cameo appearance as himself in a sketch with Catherine Tate who appeared in the guise of her character Elaine Figgis from The Catherine Tate Show. The sketch was made for the BBC Red Nose Day 2007 fundraising programme.[41]

In 2008's Defiance, he played Tuvia Bielski, a Jewish resistance fighter in the forests of Belarus during World War II who saved 1,200 people[42] The shot in Casino Royale of Craig sporting swimming trunks has often topped many sexiest male celebrity polls,[43] and in 2009 Del Monte Foods launched an ice pop moulded to resemble Craig emerging from the sea.[44] He co-starred with Hugh Jackman in a limited engagement of the drama A Steady Rain, on Broadway, which played from 10 September through 6 December, 2009 at the Schoenfeld Theatre.[45]

Craig lent his voice and likeness as James Bond for both the Wii game GoldenEye 007, an enhanced remake of the 1997 game for the Nintendo 64, and James Bond 007: Blood Stone, an original game for Xbox 360PlayStation 3Nintendo DS, and Microsoft Windows.[46] In August 2010, Craig was cast as crusading journalist Mikael Blomkvist in David Fincher's 2011 adaptation of Stieg Larsson's novel The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.[47] Craig co-starred with Harrison Ford and Olivia Wilde in Cowboys & Aliens, an American science fiction Western film, based on Scott Mitchell Rosenberg's 2006 graphic novel of the same name.[48][49]

Craig hosted the American late-night live television sketch comedy Saturday Night Live on 6 October 2012.[50][51]

In 1992, Craig married actress Fiona Loudon, with whom he had a daughter, Ella. The marriage ended in divorce in 1994.[52]

After his divorce, he was in a seven-year relationship with German actress Heike Makatsch, ending in 2001.[53] He subsequently dated film producer Satsuki Mitchell from 2004 until 2010.[54]

Craig and actress Rachel Weisz had been friends for many years, and worked together on the movie Dream House. They began dating in December 2010 and married on 22 June 2011,[54][55][56] in a private New York City ceremony, with just four guests in attendance, including Craig's 18-year-old daughter, Ella, and Weisz's four-year-old son, Henry.[57]

In October 2008, Craig paid £4 million for an apartment in a converted old house in Primrose Hill near Regent's Park, London.[58] He is a Liverpool F.C. supporter.[59] In 2013 he was given for his 45th birthday an Aston Martin V12 Vantage Roadster by his wife Rachel Weisz.

Hilary Ann Swank (born July 30, 1974) is an American film actress. She has won the Academy Award for Best Actress twice, for playing Brandon Teena in Boys Don't Cry (1998) and a struggling waitress-turned-boxer Maggie Fitzgerald in Million Dollar Baby (2004).

Early life

Swank was born in Lincoln, Nebraska.



HIDE TEXT

 

Her mother, Judy Kay (née Clough),[2] was a secretary and dancer, and her father, Stephen Michael Swank, was an officer in the Air National Guard and later a traveling salesman.[3] She has a brother, Daniel, who is eight years her senior.[4] The surname "Swank", originally Schwenk, is of German origin.[5] Many of Swank's family members hail from Ringgold County, Iowa,[1] and her maternal grandmother was of Spanish and Shoshone (Native American) ancestry.[6] After having lived in Spokane, Washington, Swank's family moved to a trailer park near Lake Samish in Bellingham, Washington, when Swank was six.[7]

She attended Happy Valley Elementary, Fairhaven Middle, then Sehome High School in Bellingham until she was sixteen.[6][8] She also competed in the Junior Olympics and the Washington state championships in swimming, and she ranked fifth in the state in all-around gymnastics.

Swank made her first appearance on stage when she was nine years old, starring in The Jungle Book.[8] She became involved in school and community theater programs, including those of the Bellingham Theatre Guild and The Seattle Children's Theater.

When she was fifteen, her parents separated, and she and her mother, supportive of her daughter's desire to act, moved to Los Angeles, where they lived out of their car until Swank's mother saved enough money to rent an apartment.[7] Swank has called her mother the inspiration for her acting career and her life.[9] In California, Swank enrolled in South Pasadena High School, dropping out later. She described her time at South Pasadena High School: “I felt like such an outsider. I didn’t feel like I fit in. I didn’t belong in any way. I didn’t even feel like the teachers wanted me there. I just felt like I wasn’t seen or understood.”[7] She explained her becoming an actor out of feeling as an outsider: “As a kid I felt that I belonged only when I read a book or saw a movie, and could get involved with a character. It was natural that I became an actor because I longed so much to be those other people, or at least to play them”.[10]

Career

Swank made her film acting debut in the 1992 film Buffy the Vampire Slayer in a small role, after which she acted in the direct-to-video drama Quiet Days in Hollywood, where she co-starred with her future husband Chad Lowe.[4] Her first leading film role was in The Next Karate Kid (1994), which utilized her gymnastics background and paired her with Pat Morita. It was the fourth movie in the Karate Kid series. In 1995 she appeared with British actor Bruce Payne in Kounterfeit. In September 1997 Swank was cast as single mother Carly Reynolds on Beverly Hills, 90210. She was initially promised it would be a two-year role, but saw her character written out after 16 episodes in January 1998.[6] Swank later stated that she was devastated at being cut from the show, thinking, "If I'm not good enough for 90210, I'm not good enough for anything."[11]

The firing freed her to audition for the role of Brandon Teena in Boys Don't Cry. Swank reduced her body fat to seven percent in preparation for the role. Many critics hailed her as the best female performance of 1999, and Swank's work ultimately won her the Golden Globe and Oscar for Best Actress.[6] Swank had earned only $75 per day for her work on Boys Don't Cry, culminating in a total of $3,000.[12] Her earnings were so low that she had not even earned enough to qualify for health insurance.[13]

Swank again won the Best Actress Oscar, and another Golden Globe, for playing a female boxer in Clint Eastwood's 2004 film Million Dollar Baby, a role for which she underwent extensive training in the ring and weight room gaining 19 pounds of muscle aided by professional trainer Grant L Roberts.[13] With her second Oscar, she had joined the ranks of Vivien LeighHelen Hayes and Luise Rainer and Katherine Hepburn as the only actresses to have been nominated for Academy Awards twice and win both times.[14] After winning her second Oscar, she said, "I don't know what I did in this life to deserve this. I'm just a girl from a trailer park who had a dream."[13]

Swank at the 2010 Toronto International Film Festival

In 2006 Swank signed a three-year contract with Guerlain for the women's fragrance Insolence.[15] She received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on January 8, 2007. Hers was the 2,325th star presented.[16][17]

In 2007 Swank starred in Freedom Writers, a drama about a real-life teacher, Erin Gruwell, who inspired a California high school class. Many reviews of Swank's performance were positive, with one critic noting that she "brings credibility" to the role,[18] and another stating that her performance reaches a "singular lack of artifice, stripping herself back to the bare essentials".[19] Swank next starred in The Reaping, a horror film released on April 5, 2007, in which she played a debunker of religious phenomena. Swank convinced the producers to move the film's setting from New England to the Deep South, and the movie was being filmed in Baton Rouge, Louisiana when Hurricane Katrina struck.[20] The same year, she also appeared in the romantic comedy P.S. I Love You alongside Gerard Butler.[20][21]

Swank portrayed the pioneering aviator Amelia Earhart in the biopic Amelia, a film she also co-executive produced.[22] Filming occurred in the summer of 2008 in a number of international locations. Swank met Robert Bresnik, a San Diego artist who supported her role as Earhart by producing several photographic reproductions of the flyer, at Legoland in 2008. Bresnik's grandfather Albert Bresnik was Earhart's official photographer, and he owned the original negatives of his grandfather's shoots.[23]

In 2012, Swank's audiobook recording of Caroline Knapp's Pack of Two: The Intricate Bond Between People and Dogs was released at Audible.com.

Swank is also attached to star in the Hollywood remake of Intimate Strangers.[24] In addition, it was incorrectly reported that Swank would play a lead role in, and produce, a film adaptation of the John Marks novel Fangland.[25][26]

She has starred in the television film Mary and Martha along with Brenda Blethyn. She played a woman whose son has died of malaria.

Swank developed potential health problems through certain preparations for her roles, including weight gain and loss for Boys Don't Cry. She has stated that she would "do what [she] need[s] to make [the role] believable and to make it work" and that her "battle scars are a reminder that you're alive and human and that you bleed."[27]

Personal life

Swank married actor Chad Lowe on September 28, 1997. The two met in 1992 on the set of Quiet Days in Hollywood.[4] They separated in January 2006,[28] and in May 2006, they announced that they were divorcing. In December 2006 Swank stated that she was dating her agent, John Campisi;[29] Swank and Campisi ended their relationship in the summer of 2012.[30]

Swank has stated that she believes in a higher power, but is not a member of any organized religion.[31]

Human rights controversy

In October 2011 Swank attracted controversy for attending an event in Chechnya's capital Grozny on the 35th birthday of Chechen president Ramzan Kadyrov on October 5.[32] After wishing him "Happy birthday, Mr. President", she reportedly claimed knowledge about Kadyrov saying: "I read. I do my provisory research".[33] Following criticism from human rights groups, who report having informed her about the human rights abuses in Chechnya prior to the event, asking her to reconsider her participation,[34][35] Swank said she was unaware that Kadyrov had been accused ofhuman rights violations and that she "deeply regrets" taking part in the lavish concert, and will donate her personal appearance fees "to various charitable organizations."[36]

Career

Early career, 1990–1997

Shelton began acting in her late teens, and appeared in several television movies and films throughout the 1990s. She had her first film role as Roberto's girlfriend at camp in the well-received drama Grand Canyon. After that role, she appeared in the 1993 popular film, The Sandlot, playing the lifeguard, Wendy Peffercorn. Her role brought her to a wider attention. In 1995, Shelton appeared as a supporting role, as former President Nixon's adult-aged Tricia Nixon Cox, in Oliver Stone's Nixon, a biopic film about the story of the political and personal life of former U.S. PresidentRichard Nixon. That same year, she guest appeared in the television series Cybill episode "The Big Sleep-Over".

Shelton next co-starred alongside Lynda Carter in When Friendship Kills (1996), a made-for-television film about the danger of anorexia nervosa among teens. She appeared opposite Jennifer Love Hewitt in the romantic comedy Trojan War, which had a limited released in September 1997.[3]Shelton landed a role in 1997's fantasy film Warriors of Virtue, as Princess Elysia. The movie was critically panned and unsuccessful at the box office.

Career transition, 1998–2008

Her first major hit came in 1998 with the fantasy comedy Pleasantville, in which she portrayed Margaret, the love interest of Tobey Maguire's character.[4] This role was followed by a number of other appearances in films aimed at a teenage audience, including her role as a member of a snobby high school clique in 1999's Never Been Kissed and The BachelorLured Innocence, an independent drama, was starring Shelton and Dennis Hopper. In the film, she played Elsie Townsend, a country towns-girl who wants to leave far away and get rich.[5] In 2001, Shelton appeared in the horror film Valentine, alongside Denise Richards and David Boreanaz. The film was largely panned,[6] but was a moderate success at the box office, grossing over $36 million worldwide.[7] She also had her first starring role on screen in the black comedy film Sugar & Spice, and appeared in Bubble Boy, a comedy film co-starring Jake Gyllenhaal. The film was based on the story of David Vetter, and followed the story of the main character's adventures as he pursues the love of his life before she marries the wrong man. The film received mixed or average reviews.[8]

In the following few years, Shelton landed in a variety of independent films, including Just a KissDallas 362Grand Theft Parsons, and Moving Alan – directed by her father and starring her sister. The film failed to achieve mainstream success. Shelton gained more attention for a small role as The Customer in the film adaptation of Frank Miller's graphic novel Sin City. Shelton provided the voice for a guest appearance as Betsy in the American Dad! episode "Deacon Stan, Jesus Man". She was also originally cast in the role of Annabeth Schott on the television series, The West Wing, but the role was eventually played by Kristin Chenoweth.

I have studied suspense and I love the old Hitchcock films for that reason. I was really delighted to be in the hands of two masters of their craft, both Robert and Quentin, playing with the ideas of building suspense."[13]

Shelton starred in The Fifth Patient, an independent thriller, in which she played the character Helen. The following year, she portrayed a minor role in the biopic film about George W. BushW., directed by Oliver Stone. In October 2008, CBS's Eleventh Hour, based on the British TV series of the same name, premiered with Shelton appearing as FBI Special Agent Rachel Young of the executive protection detail.[14] The show, however, was canceled after one season.[15]

Recent projects, 2009–present

In 2009, Shelton appeared opposite Milla Jovovich and Timothy Olyphant in A Perfect Getaway, which is a thriller about a newlywed couple on their honeymoon in Hawaii. That year, Shelton landed the role of Madeleine Gray, a trendy New York art gallery owner in the independent comedy(Untitled).[16] In an interview, Shelton explained her role in the film: "There's a purity to her. As driven as she is to find the 'get,' the next hot commodity, she also has a pure passion for art."[17] (Untitled) received favorable reviews,[18] with John Hartl of Seattle Times writing that "Shelton is perfect as the energized heroine. Ruthless, smart but pretentiously wrongheaded, she's the kind of culture vulture we haven't seen before."[19]

Women in Trouble was released theatrically the following month. In the film, Shelton portrayed the character of Cora, a flight attendant. She reprised her character in the sequel Elektra Luxx, which was released in 2010. Shelton appeared alongside Carla Gugino again in The Mighty Macs, a low-budget drama which is also known as Our Lady of Victory.
