Daniel Craig stars in "Dream House," opposite Naomi Watts and Rachel Weisz, as Will Atenton. The movie is a tense thriller directed by multi-award-winning Jim Sheridan. Upcoming films include the James Bond film "Blood Stone," as well as David Fincher's "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo."

Craig recently starred in "Cowboys & Aliens," opposite Harrison Ford and directed by Jon Favreau, as Jake Lonergan. The film marks Craig's third collaboration with film producer Steven Spielberg, following their work on the Oscar-nominated "Munich" and the up coming Spielberg-directed and Peter Jackson-produced adaptation of one of the world's most beloved comic books, "The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn," in which he plays Red Rackham.

From James Bond to The Old Vic, Daniel Craig has proven himself time and again in a wide range of roles in film, theater and television. He recently starred in "Defiance," based on the true story of four brothers in Nazi-occupied Poland, directed by Edward Zwick, and undertook his second outing as James Bond in "Quantum of Solace," directed by Marc Forster.

Born in 1968 in Chester and raised near Liverpool, Daniel was first introduced to theater at The Liverpool Everyman and Playhouse Theatres. When he reached his late teens, he moved to London to join the National Youth Theatre, before continuing his training at the London Guildhall School of Music & Drama, and has since secured roles in television, theater and film, and gone on to become regarded as one of Britain's finest actors. Daniel's earlier film credits include "Lara Croft: Tomb Raider," "Elizabeth," "Hotel Splendide," "I Dreamed of Africa," "Love & Rage," "Obsession" and "The Power of One." In 2002 he garnered much critical acclaim for his role in Sam Mendes' "The Road to Perdition."

In 2003 Daniel was seen starring in "The Mother," based on a screenplay by Hanif Kureishi and directed by Roger Michell. The following year he starred opposite Gwyneth Paltrow as "Ted Hughes" in "Sylvia" about the lives of poets Ted Hughes and Sylvia Plath. In 2005 he was seen supporting Adrien Brody and Keira Knightley in "The Jacket," in Matthew Vaughn's directorial debut "Layer Cake" and also featuring in Michell's critically acclaimed "Enduring Love" (based on the novel by Ian McEwan).

The following year audiences saw him in Steven Spielberg's Oscar nominated "Munich" and he received an Independent Spirit Award nomination (Best Supporting Actor) for his role in Douglas McGrath's "Infamous" which also starred Sandra Bullock and Gwyneth Paltrow. In 2006 he was seen playing the sixth James Bond in "Casino Royale" for which he received a BAFTA Award nomination (Best Actor) and an Empire Magazine Award (Best Actor), and the film became the highest grossing film in the history of the 007 franchise. In 2007, audiences saw Daniel in "The Golden Compass" co-starring Nicole Kidman and Eva Green, and "Flashbacks of a Fool," released in April 2008.

As a highly accomplished stage actor, Craig's theater credits include leading roles in "Hurlyburly," with the Peter Hall Company at The Old Vic Theatre; "Angels in America" at The National Theatre; and "A Number" at the Royal Court Theatre, alongside Michael Gambon. In 2010, Craig trod the boards in a 12-week Broadway run, opposite Hugh Jackman, in "A Steady Rain," a contemporary American play about two Chicago cops who recount their conflicting stories of a harrowing experience.

Daniel has numerous television credits including notable projects such as the BBC's adaptation of Michael Frayn's award-winning drama "Copenhagen," "Our Friends in the North," "Sword of Honour," "The Ice House," "The Fortunes and Misfortunes of Moll Flanders," "Kiss and Tell," "Sharpe's Eagle" and in the two-part BBC film "Archangel," based on Robert Harris's book of the same name.
