Daniel Craig is now the second longest-serving James Bond ever

Daniel Craig has become cinema's second longest-serving James Bond.

The British actor has now played the role of 007 for a total of 4,147 days - or nearly 11-and-a- half years. Having said in 2015 that he'd "rather slash my wrists" than play Bond again, Craig spoke more positively about his future as 007 past year.

The explosive 24 Bond films will be screened in chronological order with Sean Connery, the first actor to incarnate author Ian Fleming's suave creation, embarking on the first mission on Thursday, 23 February at 9:10am.

He needs to clock up another two-and-a-half years to become the longest-serving Bond, however.

But whether or not he does pull on Bond's well-tailored dinner jacket once again, when it comes to his place in the pantheon of 007 actors, Craig is already looking good.

That title is now held by Roger Moore, who starred in seven films and spent 5,118 days in the role.

The Bond franchise's executive producer, Callum McDougall, told Radio 4's Today show previous year that Bond producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G Wilson remain positive that they will be able to persuade Craig to appear in another film.

The figures have been compiled by the Press Association.

The M-Net Movies James Bond pop-up channel pays tribute to one of Hollywood's biggest movie franchises, celebrating 55 years of Hollywood's most charming secret agent.

The identity of the actor to play Bond in the next film in the sequence remains uncertain, however. "I know they're hoping for him to come back". After "joking" post-Spectre that he'd "rather slit my wrists" than do another 007, Craig pulled a screeching U-turn telling fans during a panel discussion in late 2016 "I've got the best job in the world doing Bond".
