In her annual New Year’s honor list, Queen Elizabeth honored actor Daniel Craig with the same award as his most recent fictional character, James Bond.

According to reports, Craig was named a Companion in The Order of St Michael and St George (CMG) “in recognition of his outstanding contribution to film.” The CMG awarding means that Craig and Bond both hold the same titles; Craig was named an honorary Commander in the British Royal Navy in September 2021.

Craig portrayed 007 in five feature films across 15 years. He recently spoke to HYPEBEAST about the ending of his final film No Time To Die, stating:

“It’s a combination of lots of things. I mean it’s a conversation I had very early on with the producers about where I wanted to take the movie. I’ve always felt that the man had a big heart. I kind of feel like in spite of the fact that he’s a killer, he loves humanity – that’s what he’s trying to protect. He’s a good man inside, he’s honorable and those things in life that are most important affect him just as strongly as they affect everybody else and that’s kind of what I was steering towards. I’m very proud and satisfied with the movie as a whole, but hopefully, it leaves it in a place now where whatever happens can grow from that and be better and bigger than what we’ve done.”

Elsewhere in entertainment, Spider-Man: No Way Home surpassed $600 million USD in the domestic box office.
