Daniel Craig was honoured on the 28th of November with the Variety Award at the annual British Independent Film Award (BIFA) ceremony, which took place at Roundhouse in north London–reports Hello Magazine.
The star of Casino Royale and next year’s Bond 22 is was awarded this honour due to his contribution to bringing the international spotlight to the British film industry.
In the past, Craig has been nominated three times at the British Independent Film Award (BIFA) ceremonies, winning the best actor award for 2000’s Some Voices. His other nominations include 1999’s The Trench and 2004’s Enduring Love.
It turns out that Craig wasn’t the only actor from the 007 series honoured last night. Dame Judi Dench picked up the Best Actress award for her role as a conniving history teacher in 2006’s Notes on a Scandal.
When asked who she thought was the best James Bond so far, Dench replied: ‘Daniel’s amazing but I couldn’t possibly have a favourite.’
The awards were established in 1998 to celebrate and promote achievement in independently-funded British film. This year’s ceremony will take place on 28 November at Roundhouse in north London.
