But Craig proved them wrong, winning universal acclaim for his riskier, grittier Bond—inexperienced, insecure, and troubled by killing. Beginning with his early career, this book traces the provocative choices Craig made along the path to becoming a film icon. When a BBC television performance brought film offers, Craig opted to costar in Love is the Devil, as artist Francis Bacon’s violent, self-destructive lover. The much-derided Lara Croft: Tomb Raider film raised his profile, but Craig passed on the sequel, continually shunning lead roles to establish himself as a forceful character actor. In Road to Perdition, Craig played a cold blooded child killer. He then costarred in The Mother, having an affair with a woman twice his age. His Hollywood choices remained dark and edgy—feminist hate figure Ted Hughes in Sylvia and a troubled Mossad agent in Munich. Post Casino Royale, Craig starred in both The Invasion and The Golden Compass. Craig remains a very gifted, versatile actor, with a strong body of work—theater, TV, and film. Committed to the Bond franchise for the foreseeable future, Craig is unlikely to be short of other offers.
