When Ian Fleming created the character of James Bond in his 1953 novel Casino Royale, he probably never imagined that it would start a media franchise that would not only outlive him, but also span more than 50 years of action. With countless books, 24 Films, and other adaptations and depictions having taken place, there's certainly a lot of Bonds to go around for anyone who wants them. But those who have the most indelibly ingrained character on our minds are, of course, those who get to play characters on film, and for one brief instance, on television. Those eight actors are historic watermarks for James Bond's longevity on screen, and without their contributions, series just might not be the behemoth that it has evolved into. Who are people who have played James Bond over the years? Let's catch up on them all. Believe it or not, James Bond began his journey to the silver Screen as Live TV adaptation of the hit show Climax! Adapting the first book in the series, Casino Royale, writers Charles Bennett and Anthony Ellis make rather interesting change to source material in order for Barry Nelson to star as 007 himself. Which is why this is the only version you'll see with American James Bond, and British Felix Leiter. All other versions after this would revert Bond back to being a renowned super spy for MI6, but in Climax! Version, he works for Combined Intelligence Agency. Years active: 1962-1967 1971 1983 Number Of Films: 7 Probably the Most Iconic James Bond to ever hit the Screen, Sean Connery is the person that everyone thinks of when you say words, Bond, jam Bond. While Ian Fleming initially doubted casting, his successful debut in 1962's Dr. No not only won author over to his side, it also caused him to write characters closer to the actor's own background in subsequent novels. But while he's one of the most iconic actors to have played role, he's also one of the most complicated actors to have taken role. This is because of the fact that while he had a straight five year run as character, from 1962 to 1967, he was lure back Twice after that Golden age to reprise character. One of those performances, 1983's Never Say Never Again, is counted as an unofficial James Bond film; considering it was made outside of the EON Productions canon, and is a remake of Thunderball, driven by the film's original creator, Kevin McClory. Save for the video game voice-over role in adaptation Of From Russia With Love, that was the last time Connery ever donned a tuxedo-and it's still a source of debate between Bond fans who love it or hate it. Year active: 1967 Number Of Films: 1 Whenever David Niven enters conversation on film, Jam Bond series is something folks wouldn't be likely to cite as part of his resume.

Fresh and new weren't necessarily the first words that come out of the mouths of Bond fans when they found out that Daniel Craig was embodying a British Spy agent. Many fans complained Craig didn't fit the character's description of tall, dark and handsome and subsequently mock stage-trained actor, calling him names like James Blonde and James Bland. But Craig would prove them wrong. Like Brosnan, Craig brings Bond into a new era this time, 21st century. His Bond returns to Fleming's original vision, along with the best traits of previous Bonds before him. Craig brought edge, charisma and vulnerability to the role, invariably winning wary fans over.
