Since his debut in Ian Fleming's 1953 novel, James Bond, the suave British secret agent, has become one of the most iconic characters in film history. The role of Bond has been portrayed by several actors over the decades, each bringing their own charm, grit, and style to the character. Let's take a closer look at the actors who have stepped into the shoes of 007, the films they starred in, and who stands out as the most popular Bond of all.

Sean Connery
Sean Connery was the first actor to play James Bond, and he arguably set the gold standard. Connery starred in six official Bond films:


  • Dr. No (1962)
  • From Russia with Love (1963)
  • Goldfinger (1964)
  • Thunderball (1965)
  • You Only Live Twice (1967)
  • Diamonds Are Forever (1971)
    Connery also reprised his role in the unofficial Bond film Never Say Never Again (1983). His portrayal of Bond combined rugged masculinity with a suave, sophisticated demeanor, making him a fan favorite and a tough act to follow.

George Lazenby

George Lazenby played Bond only once in On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969). Despite his brief tenure, Lazenby's Bond is remembered for his emotional depth and the film's tragic storyline. Despite playing an Iconic character he is someone not remembered by this role

Roger Moore


Roger Moore brought a lighter, more humorous touch to the character, playing Bond in seven films:

  • Live and Let Die (1973)
  • The Man with the Golden Gun (1974)
  • The Spy Who Loved Me (1977)
  • Moonraker (1979)
  • For Your Eyes Only (1981)
  • Octopussy (1983)
  • A View to a Kill (1985)

Moore's Bond was charming and witty, with a knack for delivering quips in the face of danger. His tenure saw some of the most outlandish plots and gadgets, cementing his place as a beloved Bond. I loved him as a 007

Timothy Dalton


Timothy Dalton's Bond was a return to a more serious, hard-edged character, closer to Fleming's original creation. He starred in two films:

  • The Living Daylights (1987)
  • Licence to Kill (1989)
  • Dalton's portrayal was intense and brooding, focusing more on character development and less on gadgets and humor. While his run was short, it was critically acclaimed.

Pierce Brosnan

Pierce Brosnan brought a blend of Connery's charm and Moore's humor, starring in four films:

  • GoldenEye (1995)
  • Tomorrow Never Dies (1997)
  • The World Is Not Enough (1999)
  • Die Another Day (2002)
    Brosnan's Bond was suave, stylish, and sophisticated, with a modern edge. He successfully revitalized the franchise in the 1990s, making Bond relevant to a new generation of fans.
    He is the reason for me that the 007 franchise is so successful right now

Daniel Craig

Daniel Craig's Bond is known for his gritty realism and emotional depth. He has starred in five films:

  • Casino Royale (2006)
  • Quantum of Solace (2008)
  • Skyfall (2012)
  • Spectre (2015)
  • No Time to Die (2021)

Craig's portrayal has been praised for its intensity and vulnerability, bringing a fresh and modern take to the character. His films have been some of the highest-grossing in the franchise. Daniel Craig made 007 a superhero.

Who is the most popular? Surveys and box office receipts often point to Sean Connery as the quintessential Bond. His portrayal laid the foundation for all who followed, and his films are still considered classics. Daniel Craig, with his modern and emotionally complex interpretation, also ranks highly, especially among younger audiences.
Roger Moore’s longevity in the role and his lighter, more comedic take have also earned him a special place in Bond history.

For me the Best James Bond is Daniel Craig.

No one can ever replace the original. Sean Connery was the best there ever was, and his passing is a huge loss for the film world. But if you asked a younger me to pick, I would have chosen Pierce Brosnan because he is handsome, lol


Yes Sean Connery is what comes to mind when you think about James Bond but for me Daniel Craig is the one that made James Bond a superhero.
