Daniel Craig has revealed his all-time favorite James Bond gadget, and it’s a classic choice from Sean Connery’s esteemed tenure as 007.
Daniel Craig has revealed his favorite James Bond gadget ever, and it’s not one he uses in No Time to Die. The British star has concluded his fifteen-year tenure as 007 with the release of the new film, ending one of the franchise’s most beloved and successful eras since the days of Sean Connery’s Bond. While Craig’s James Bond era has kept many of the hallmarks of the series intact, his films have featured notably fewer and less silly gadgets than early iterations of 007.
The James Bond gadget is as central to the character and the franchise at large as shaken martinis, Aston Martins, secret villain organizations, and snazzy suits. The popular character Q, played in the Craig 007 era by Ben Whishaw, exists primarily just to equip Bond with handy and often ridiculous tools to aid in his spying activities. Jetpacks, knife shoes, bird hats, hidden cameras, secret gas canisters, poison, weaponized cigarettes, submarine cars, and more have all played their role in Bond’s adventures over the years, but none of those earn the prestigious title of Craig’s favorite James Bond gadget.
