"James Bond" star Daniel Craig is mourning the loss of his lookalike father, Tim Craig, who passed at the age of 77 while surrounded by those closest to him.


The latest Bond film, "No Time To Die" is set for release later this year, and it will mark Daniel Craig's 25th and final portrayal of the famous spy. Sadly, the actor is mourning the loss of another ending.

Following a battle with liver cancer, Daniel's father Tim Craig died aged 77. According to reports Daniel, his mother Kirsty, and his half-brother Harry was with him when he died.

Daniel and his father, who shared an uncanny resemblance, went to the theatre in 1973, where they watched the first "James Bond" film Daniel ever saw named "Live and Let Die."

The pair are said to have been close, and Tim even described them as "best friends" during an interview once, even though they maintained healthy boundaries regarding the share of information. Daniel is notoriously private, and the pair reportedly agreed not to mention each other on social media.



Even so, Tim shared the pride he felt for his son in the past. At times, Tim went along to movie premieres like that of "Casino Royale" and "Quantum of Solace," and he couldn't help but gush during an interview, as he reportedly said:

“He doesn’t talk about me and I don’t talk about him, but naturally I am extremely proud of him as he is a very fine actor.”


Tim also felt proud that fame and fortune never changed Daniel. The Chester businessman would also talk about the "fine" person Daniel became, but beyond that, they don't divulge details to the public.

Sadly, Tim also died the day before Daniel's mom, Kirsty's birthday. Kirsty and the former director of a recruitment company lived near Oswestry in Shropshire.



In 1974, the world of stunts reached a new frontier, when the Bond film "The Man with the Golden Gun" hit the circuit. For the first time, a computer-modelled stunt appeared in a film

Roger Moore starred as Bond at the time, and the stunt involved jumping a car over a broken bridge. The trick is, the car had to do a corkscrew in mid-air before landing on its wheels again. Clever computer modelling and crazy calculations had the stunt executed without a hitch and in the first take.

Another actor who also became synonymous with the "James Bond" franchise, is Sean Connery and he recently had cause for celebration.

Sean Connery had impressive seven decades as an outstanding actor before he retired from the industry, and just a few days ago, on August 25, the legendary actor celebrated his 90th birthday.
