Daniel Craig’s father Tim dies of liver cancer at the age of 77

Daniel Craig’s father died of liver cancer at the age of 77.

Tim Craig’s death last Thursday, the day before his wife’s birthday, broke the heart of his James Bond star son.

The loving father, who previously referred to his relationship with his son as “best friends”, was a Chester businessman who lived with his wife Kirsty near Oswestry, Shropshire.

It is believed that Kirsty, Daniel, and his half-brother Harry were with Mr. Craig when he died.

Known for his uncanny resemblance to his son, the proud father has appeared at regional premieres for James Bond films his son has starred in over the years, such as Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace.

In an interview with the Chester Chronicle, the private citizen said years ago: “Daniel doesn’t talk about me and I don’t talk about him, but of course I’m very proud of him because he’s a very good actor.”

Daniel’s publicist Laura Symons said the family would not make a statement.

Hollywood actor Daniel was born at home on March 2, 1968 while his father Tim was the landlord of the Ring O’Bells pub in Frodsham.

It is believed that trips to the Chester Gateway Theater inspired his career and he decided to become an actor while in the pub.

‘Someone asked what he would do when he grew up, and without breaking the pace he said, “be an actor,” Tim is reported to have said.

And the first James Bond movie Daniel ever saw was with his father in 1973 when the couple watched Live and Let Die.

Mr. Craig previously stated that Daniel was “protecting his privacy” and the couple had agreed to keep silent from the media.

The Chester Chronicle spoke to Mr. Craig about Daniel’s then-newest film Specter in 2015, but his father refused to say anything other than, “Of course I saw it.”

Mr. Craig, who was the director of a recruiting firm on his wife’s behalf – Kirsty Craig Associates – said that his son was “lucky” when he was successful in acting.

While no one in the Craig family acted except for Tim’s cousin Simon Jones, who starred in The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and Brideshead Revisited, Daniel knew this was the path for him.

Mr. Craig said, “Life is a journey, the desire to find happiness, the ultimate quest – you have been lucky”.

Daniel’s father separated from his mother Olivia and Daniel in 1972 and his sister Lea lived with her in Liverpool before they moved to Hoylake, Wirral.

He was just 16 when he dropped out of school and went to London to audition for the National Youth Theater and to attend the Guildhall.

Tim, former landlord of The Boot Inn in Willington (pictured), previously described his relationship with his son as “best friends” and said Daniel was a “very good person” who would not be changed by fame and fortune

His first screen appearance was in Morgan Freeman’s film The Power Of One. He has since become known worldwide for starring as James Bond and starring in other big hits like Knives Out in 2019 and Layer Cake in 2004.

And it appears that Mr. Craig has been kind in both his professional and personal life. A social media user took to Twitter after hearing the tragic news to reveal a thoughtful encounter with Mr. Craig many years ago.

She shared how Mr. Craig helped her find a job when he was working at a recruiting agency and even sent her champagne and champagne glasses when she got the job.

She wrote: “I am so sorry to hear that Daniel Craig’s father Tim has died. He was a really lovely man. I knew him briefly, and he once did something nice for me.

“Tim Craig ran a recruiting agency in my twenties and I sent my resume to. They told me very politely in a letter that I didn’t quite fit in with them, their customer profile was much more experienced and they wished me all the best.

“Months later I got an unexpected call. It was Tim. He found my résumé and found it interesting. He had an idea for me. He invited me for a chat. When I met him, he was nice and charming. He thought he could pass my resume on to the HR manager of a large company.

‘(And yes, we were talking about Daniel. That was long before his James Bond days, but I’d seen him on’ The Power of One. ‘Tim was obviously proud and pleased to have seen one of his son’s films .)

“So Tim arranged the interview for me. And I got the job! All because he took the effort to read a discarded résumé and find the potential in it. But that’s far from the end …

“A few weeks later I got a surprise delivery to my new place of work. A bottle of champagne and six Royal Doulton Crystal champagne flutes, with a handwritten congratulation from Tim.

“This generous and thoughtful gesture by this amiable man has accompanied me for years. I took good care of the glasses and will drink to him tonight. ‘

It comes as Daniel’s fifth and final Bond film, No Time To Die, is set to hit theaters in the UK on November 12th.
