Best Actors Who Played the Character of James Bond

The James Bond movie franchise has been coming out since the early 1960s with Sean Connery being the first actor to play the role in the movie Dr. No. Every actor who played the role of Agent 007 has brought a lot to the character and the movie. One of the points where the creator of James Bond has always been that whether they should adopt the version of the character shown in the novel or should they add something new to the character or the movie itself.

All the Bond Movies have given people an idea about technology, gadgets, the latest fashion and more. The character of James Bond itself appears to be quite charming with a lot of glamour. Also, he tends to have that charisma that sets new trends for both the fashion and movie industry at the same time. You can check out many of these movies and different clips using YouTube if you have a Fixed Wireless Internet.  Also, there are many cable services that have movie channels where you can enjoy all the 007 action and glamor on HD quality picture and sound. For now, Let’s have a look at the movie stars who played Agent 007 over the years.

Pierce Brosnan

Movies Appeared In: GoldenEye, Tomorrow Never Dies, The World Is Enough and Die Another Day

Pierce Brosnan might be one of the best Bond characters of the 90s but his portrayal as the man with the license to kill was a little too slick. The movies itself had a weaker script and focused more on product placement and special effects. As an individual. Pierce Brosnan’s depiction as Agent 007 might not be up to the mark and his addition to the James Bond franchise seemed a little irrelevant.

Roger Moore

Movies Appeared In: Moonraker, A View To A Kill, Live And Let Die, The Man With The Golden Gun, Octopussy, For Your Eyes Only and The Spy Who Loved Me

Sir Roger Moore portrayed the character of James Bond in some of the greatest hits of all times. He brought lightness and absurdity to the character of James Bond making it one of the perfect fit for the fashion trends followed by people in the 70s. In the 80s he became a little too old and out of shape to play the role of James Bond but still was able to set incredible standards for the Bond movie franchise.

Timothy Dalton

Movies Appeared In: License To Kill and The Living Daylights

Dalton played James Bond in two bond films but had to quit in the 80s after some legal issues that he had to face for a few years. Timothy’s task was to bring the character of James Bond aligned with the character set by Ian Fleming. This requires James Bond to be a little more serious character. Also, they had to make sure that the movie or the character’s fans do not feel alienated as they have spent more than a decade watching Roger Moore inhibiting the part.

Sean Connery

Movies Appeared In: Dr. No, You Only Live Twice, From Russia With Love, Thunderball, Diamonds Are Forever, Goldenfinger and Never Say Never Again

Sean Connery created the mold for the James Bond character a=and for many fans of Connery’s depiction of James Bond was one of the most perfect representations of 007. He was charming, confident and when he had to deliver a quick one-liner. It’s this aspect of the character that makes Sean Connery’s version of James Bond more admirable.

Daniel Craig

Movies Appeared In: Skyfall, Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace, No Time to Die, Spectre

Daniel Craig did justice to a vast extent with the James Bond character that Ian Fleming and different authors who came after him created. He represents the same gritty and hard-nosed spy. His appearance in Casino Royale revived the entire franchise. For now, the character is in good hands and hopes are high that whoever will take over over the mantle of James Bond is going to do justice with the character. No Time Die was his last act as 007 as the actor claimed to have a lot of injuries and other complications while he was playing the character.


In the end, one can say that playing the character of James Bond is one of the toughest jobs and many actors who have tried to play the role did justice to it. It will always be known to be one of the most followed characters in the movie industry around the world. It has set new trends in almost every era where people admire the character as a standard for thrillers, glamor and the action shown in the movies
