James Bond is also known as 007, and is a secret agent from MI5, the British secret service. James Bond was created by novelist Ian Fleming in 1953, who wrote a series of twelve books about the adventures of the British spy. The film adaptations are the longest running film series of all time. Daniel Craig is the current James Bond, but apparently the next film will be his last one. There is always a great mystery as to who the next James Bond will be.

Bond films are well known for their high level of adventure, exotic locations, cars, gadgets, and tense exchanges between villains and our hero. Though the Bond franchise has been a popular film staple across the world, James Bond is actually a bit of a controversial character. The character's critics call him out for being a misogynist, and stuck in a world of British imperialism.

When was the first James Bond novel written?

The first James Bond novel that was written was Casino Royale. Casino Royale was published in 1953 by the British author, Ian Fleming. This became the first book out of 12 James Bond novels. The novel focuses on the agent James Bond gambling at the casino, Royale-les-Eaux, to bankrupt Le Chiffre, a French treasurer.

What gun does James Bond use?

The gun that James Bond uses is the Walther PPK (Polizei Pistole Kriminal), a German pistol. The Walther PPK had its literary debut in Ian Fleming’s, Dr. No, the sixth James Bond novel. The Walther PPK was specifically designed for undercover detectives, making it ideal for James Bond.

What does M stand for in James Bond?

The M in James Bond stands for the character who is the head of the Secret Intelligence Service, also known as the MI6. The Vice Admiral’s full name is Sir Miles Messervy and he is referred by his initials. M’s first appearance was in the novel Casino Royale.

James Bond (Timothy Dalton)

Timothy Dalton first appeared on our screens as the infamous spy 007 in 1987. He appeared in only two Bond films: The Living Daylights (1987) and License to Kill (1989). Timothy Dalton studied Ian Fleming’s original Bond novels extensively, intent on playing the part as the author intended. Dalton is considered the closest physical match to the literary Bond: he is tall with a slim build, short dark hair and grey eyes. Dalton’s time as Bond was cut short due to legal issues, which put the franchise on hold for many years.

James Bond was portrayed by Timothy Dalton with a height of 6’2” (1.88 m).
