Daniel Craig becomes richest 'James Bond' ever after making it to Sunday Times Rich List for first time

Daniel Craig is the wealthiest James Bond since the franchise began after making it onto the Sunday Times Rich List for the first time.

The 50-year-old has a combined fortune of £125million with his 48-year-old actress wife, Rachel Weisz.

It comes after Craig reportedly signed a £100million deal for the 25th Bond film, taking him into the top five highest movie earners.

Sir Sean Connery, the first actor to play 007 in the films, has his fortune rated at £85million in 2008, with Pierce Brosnan netting £63million on this year's list, The Sun Online reports.

George Lazenby, who starred in just one of the movies, was worth £52million in 2010 and Sir Roger Moore was at £50million last year.

Weisz and Craig come it at 912th on the overall list. Actress Salma Hayek, 51, beat them to the top spot on the film fortune category with her wealth of £5.126billion with Gucci owner husband Francois-Henri Pinault.
