Daniel Craig Has Been Awarded The Same Order As His 007 Character In The 2022 New Year’s Honours List, Released On Friday

The actor, 53, has been made a companion of the Order of St Michael and St George- the same gong the famous spy agent was bestowed in the novels by Ian Fleming.

Daniel is being awarded for his services to film and theatre- with the title usually only reserved for senior diplomats and spies.

Daniel played fictional spy Bond from 2006 until this year, with his final film, No Time To Die, being released on 30 September.

In the book From Russia With Love, a spy chief states that 007 ‘was decorated with the CMG in 1953, an award usually given only on retirement from the Secret Service’.

Daniel’s honour recognises service in a foreign country, or in relation to foreign and Commonwealth affairs.

Before the release of No Time To Die this year, Daniel was appointed an honorary Commander by the Royal Navy, another rank held by his character.

He said in September: ‘I am truly privileged and honoured to be appointed the rank of Honorary Commander in the senior service.’

The screen star and the No Time To Die crew worked closely with the Royal Navy during filming.

Making history: Bond franchise producer Barbara Broccoli has been made a CBE in the 2022 New Year’s Honours list

Daniel first starred as Bond in Casino Royale in 2006 before appearing in 2008’s Quantum Of Solace, 2012’s Skyfall and 2015’s Spectre.

In addition, franchise producer Barbara Broccoli has been made a CBE in the 2022 New Year’s Honours list.

The filmmaker, who has been involved in the movies for more than 20 years, is hailed for her services to film, drama, philanthropy and to skills.

Her brother, Michael G Wilson, who Barbara co-owns EON Productions and has produced the last nine Bond films with, has also been made a CBE this year.
