oo7 James Bond Actors in Order Chronological
Read on for everything you need to know about all the actors who have taken on the role over the years in the order of their appearance. The nearly-60-year-old James Bond series has featured many recurring performers, and fans might like to remember how often they’ve seen each actor. Seven actors in total have portrayed Bond in film. Following Connery’s portrayal, David Niven, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan, and Daniel Craig have assumed the role.
American actor Barry Nelson was the first to portray Bond on screen, in a 1954 television adaptation, “Casino Royale”. In 1961, Eon Productions began work on Dr. No, an adaptation of the 1958 novel of the same name. The result was a film that spawned a series of twenty-five films produced by Eon Productions and two independent films. After considering “refined” English actors such as Cary Grant and David Niven, the producers cast Sean Connery as Bond in the film. Despite their depicting the same character, there have been notable differences among the portrayals. Daniel Craig has been the incumbent Bond in the Eon series for the longest time although not the most films. He portrayed the part for a fifth time in No Time to Die, which was released in September 2021. So here is a list of James Bond actors in Chronological order portrayed Bond film series.

Why is bond called 007?
In the first novel, Casino Royale, and the 2006 film adaptation, the 00 concept is introduced and, in Bond’s words, means “that you’ve had to kill a chap in cold blood in the course of some assignment”. Bond’s 00 number (007) was awarded to him because he twice killed in fulfilling assignments.
