James Bond


006 of 007

Daniel craig

“Shaken and Stirred”* has a double meaning. It is a famous catch phrase from James Bond, a character created by Ian Fleming. Bond always requests that his martinis are made shaken and not stirred. If you “shake” something, you hold it in your hands and move it up and down quickly. If you “stir” something, you use a straw or spoon to combine all of the ingredients that are in a glass or pot. If the moviegoers of Quantum of Solace feel “shaken and stirred”, they enjoyed themselves during the film and felt that the film was adventurous and fun.

Daniel Craig is the sixth actor to play James Bond. He was born in Chester, England and has had an impressive career in television and film.

Craig graduated from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in 1991. He played small parts on British television for several years until his breakthroughrole in 1996. He starred as Geordie in the much-lauded series Our Friends in the North. This nine-part drama told the story of four friends from Newcastle, England from 1964 until 1995. The storyline was set against the backdrop of social turmoil and events in modern Britain.
