The actor’s salary surpassed the other 6 secret agent interpreters with a very high amount
In the reality show 007: Road to a Million, presented by Brian Cox, contestants face challenges inspired by the secret agent’s missions to win up to 1 million pounds. Even though this amount is quite high, it doesn’t even come close to how much the interpreters of the most famous secret agent in the world received to bring James Bond to life. But which one is the richest?
Throughout the 27 films in the 007 franchise, seven actors have had the privilege of ordering a vodka martini (shaken, not stirred) as the spy. In addition to having their careers taken to another level by playing one of the most iconic characters in cinema, they all received impressive salaries. Still, Daniel Craig is the highest-paid Bond in history.
The new James Bond has not yet been chosen, but the next actor has already broken a record in the 007 franchise
How much did the highest-paid James Bond in history receive?
According to the website Celebrity Net Worth, the most recent James Bond accumulated $85.4 million for the five films he released. Specifically, he earned $3.2 million for Casino Royale, $7.2 million for Quantum of Solace, $20 million for Operation Skyfall, $30 million for 007 Conntra Spectre, and $25 million for No Time to Die.
As surprising as this may seem, considering the exorbitant amount Craig received, it is not the largest of his career. Although the exact amount was not disclosed, Variety revealed that he signed a deal in excess of $100 million to return for the sequels to Knives Out. He plays the eccentric detective Benoit Blanc in Knives Out, Glass Onion and in the third volume, which is scheduled to debut in 2024.
