She said the organization is thrilled to place Craig's terrazzo Walk of Fame star next to the star of another famed actor who also portrayed James Bond, Roger Moore.
Martinez added that fans would be pleased to see their stars appropriately located at 7007 Hollywood Boulevard. In addition, the event will be live-streamed on www.walkoffame.com.
According to People, the unveiling ceremony will take place just two days before his fifth and final Bond film, “No Time To Die," as it debuts in theaters on October 8.
Craig is the fourth movie star to receive the honor after Moore, David Niven, and Pierce Brosnan. His co-star Rami Malek and the movie producers are set to deliver a speech in his honor.
FINAL STINT EXIT
As for his exit on his final installment, Digital Spy reports significant spoilers ahead as it bids farewell to the English native ending his era in the franchise.
Craig's fifth installment sees Bond five years into retirement living a peaceful life in Jamaica. However, things change when Felix Leiter, played by Jeffrey Wright, reappears to ask Bond to help him track down a scientist.
As expected, the mission takes a twisted turn as Bond crosses paths with a mysterious villain (Malek) and a deadly new technology. The outlet reports it turns to be a spectacular ending for Craig.
The latest technology is a DNA-targeted virus codenamed Heracles, developed by M (Ralph Fieness) with the intention to kill a specific target without collateral damage.
