One thing is certain, if you are a fan of Ian Flemming's James Bond 007 movies, then the name Daniel Craig would not be a strange one because the 'Agent 007' star is one of the most successful actors of the franchise that was first brought to our screen by the immutable Sean Connery in 1962 with "Dr. No".

Let me quickly you to Film District Dubai, a world-class company that specializes in Film Equipment Rental Dubai, Audio-Visual Equipment Rental Dubai, Photo Booth Rental Dubai, and Camera Rental Dubai.

Daniel Wroughton Craig, born March 2, 1968, is an English actor who is famously recognized for his role as James Bond in the James Bond film series, which began with the 2006 sequel Casino Royale and catapulted him to international celebrity. He has starred in three further installments as of January 2021, with his fifth and final appearance as the debonair 'Bond, James Bond' set to be released in late 2021. 

His breakthrough part, however, was in the 1996 drama series "Our Friends in the North", the 2005 historical drama picture "Munich", the mystery thriller "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" (2011), as well as in the comedy-mystery movie "Knives Out" (2019) could be referenced as among his other notable performances (2019).

Craig was nominated for a BAFTA Award for Best Actor in a Leading Role for his performance in Casino Royale, which was released in November 2006. For his starring roles in Quantum of Solace (2008), Skyfall (2012), which turned out to be the highest-grossing film in the series, Spectre (2015), and No Time to Die (2021) have heightened his star power and brought him even more international acclaim. In addition to these, his other film features such as the fantasy picture The Golden Compass (2007), the historical drama Defiance (2008), the science fiction Western Cowboys & Aliens (2011), and the heist film Logan Lucky, among others (2017) have seen him receive more encomiums for his performances. In fact, he was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor – Motion Picture Musical or Comedy for the latter.

After signing a hefty agreement with Netflix, the British actor has become the most paid actor in the world. His new deal with Netflix will see him film the next two sequels to 'Knives Out,' which will pay him roughly $100 million (80 million euros).

This puts him at the top of his profession's earnings list, surpassing Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, who earned $30 million for 'Red One,' a figure that might reach $50 million.

Will Smith and Denzel Washington, who both earned 40 million dollars for their roles in 'King Richard' and 'The Little Things,' are the third and fourth highest-paid actors on the planet, respectively, with Leonardo DiCaprio coming in third with 30 million dollars for his Netflix film 'Don't Look Up.'

This is certainly a good testament to his skills as a goods and versatile actor whose choice as the next Agent 007 in the James Bond series was initially met with a lot of scorn and opposition by the millions of fans of the James Bond franchise who felt that his blond hair and 5 feet 10 inches frame (1.78m) didn't meet the tall and dark-haired image of the iconic James Bond character in the series.

This news, therefore, spotlights Daniel Craig's star qualities as can be attested to by the successes of his other movies aside from that of the legendary spy agent, James Bond; as well as removing the negative spotlight of criticism that followed his declaration some time ago that his children will not inherit anything from his fortune which is presently estimated to be around 138 million euros.

With Craig set to feature in Netflix's next two installments of "Knives Out"; fans of the suave James Bond 007's actor can look forward to a harvest of his unique set skills beyond the release of his last James Bond's character in "No Time to Die" that is now officially set for release in cinemas on September 30, 2021, after the originally scheduled April 2, 2020, was canceled due to the ravaging impact of Covid-19.

For now, let us leave Danny to enjoy his good fortune and status as the highest-paid actor in the world.
