His father’s name is Timothy John Wroughton Craig who was the landlord of the pubs ‘Ring o’ Bells’ and ‘Boot’s Inn’ in Chester England and also served as a midshipman in the Merchant Navy. Likewise, his mother’s name is Carol Olivia who was an Art Teacher. The actor also has two siblings, one older Sister named Lea Craig and another brother, Harry Craig.
Daniel has his primary school in Frodsham, Then he joins Holy Trinity Primary School in Hoylake. He couldn’t pas out the eleven plus there and attended Hilbre High School in nearby West Kirby. He finally completed his secondary education when he was 16b yrs old. Daniel has also join Calday Grange Grammar School as a sixth form student. He is an alumnus of the National Youth Theatre and graduated from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London.

Craig’s father was a steelworker and later a pub owner, and his mother taught art. Following his parents’ divorce, Craig moved to Liverpool with his elder sister and their mother, who eventually remarried. His mother frequented the Everyman Theatre and encouraged her son’s early interest in acting; he appeared in a school production at the age of six. The family moved to nearby Hoylake in 1977. An indifferent student, Craig left school at 16 to pursue acting.

Craig auditioned for, and was accepted by, the National Youth Theatre in 1984. He made his debut in the company’s London staging of William Shakespeare’s Troilus and Cressida and later toured Spain and Russia in other productions. In 1988 he was accepted to the Guildhall School of Music and Drama at the Barbican and graduated in 1991, having already been cast in a supporting role in the film The Power of One (1992), an antiapartheid tale. Craig then garnered a string of supporting and guest parts in television films and serials. In 1993 he played several roles in the Royal National Theatre’s production of Tony Kushner’s AIDS elegy Angels in America and in 1994 played one of a trio of 17th-century carousers in a Women’s Playhouse Trust staging of Aphra Behn’s The Rover. He then appeared as a stableboy mooning over a princess (played by Kate Winslet) in A Kid in King Arthur’s Court (1995), a Disney film adaptation of a Mark Twain novel.

Craig came to wider attention in England as a troubled young man in the relationship drama miniseries Our Friends in the North (1996); as the highwayman paramour of the title character in The Fortunes and Misfortunes of Moll Flanders (1996), a raunchy television adaptation of the novel by Daniel Defoe; and as French aviator Henri Guillaumet in the Antoine de Saint-Exupéry biopic Saint-Ex (1996). He played a Jesuit involved in the Babington plot to assassinate the queen in the lavish Elizabeth (1998) and the criminal lover of the painter Francis Bacon in Love Is the Devil: Study for a Portrait of Francis Bacon (1998).

In the next decade Craig appeared more frequently in Hollywood fare. He assumed supporting roles as a land manager in I Dreamed of Africa (2000), as the romantic interest of the title adventuress in Lara Croft: Tomb Raider (2001), and as the son of a gangster played by Paul Newman in Road to Perdition (2002). In The Mother (2003) Craig prowled the screen as a manipulative handyman who begins an affair with the much-older mother of his girlfriend, and in the Sylvia Plath biopic Sylvia (2003) he appeared as poet Ted Hughes. In the thriller Layer Cake (2004) he starred as a disillusioned cocaine dealer and in Munich (2005) evinced a Mossad agent intent on avenging the murder of Israeli athletes at the 1972 Olympic Games. Craig then portrayed one of the killers depicted by Truman Capote in his “nonfiction novel” In Cold Blood in the film Infamous (2006), the mysterious Lord Asriel in the fantasy The Golden Compass (2007), and a Jewish resistance fighter during World War II in Defiance (2008).

Craig’s casting in Casino Royale, the 2006 revamp of the James Bond franchise, was controversial, as he did not fit the physical type established in Ian Fleming’s novels and embodied to various degrees by such actors as Sean Connery and Pierce Brosnan. However, most critics were silenced by his brooding virile take on the martini-swilling spook. He reprised the role in Quantum of Solace (2008), Skyfall (2012), and Spectre (2015).

In 2011 Craig appeared as an outlaw battling extraterrestrials in the action comedy Cowboys & Aliens and as a journalist investigating a decades-old murder in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, David Fincher’s English-language adaptation of the Stieg Larsson novel by the same name. Also in 2011 Craig starred in Dream House with Rachel Weisz, and the couple married that same year. In 2017 he played an explosives expert in Steven Soderbergh’s comedy heist Logan Lucky and portrayed the neighbour and love interest of a foster mother living in Los Angeles during the riots of 1992 in Kings.
