When discussing James Bond and Sean Connery the words ‘original’ and ‘best’ are often quoted and today he is unsurprisingly still the most popular actor to play James Bond. I’ve been running a still active poll asking who your favourite James Bond is and the contest for second place is very close indeed.
As I write this (May 2010), Sean Connery is very much in the lead with 39% of the vote but second place is almost a dead heat between Roger Moore and Pierce Brosnan with 21-22% of the votes. The current 007, Daniel Craig, is a distant fourth with only half of the votes of Messrs Moore and Brosnan. George Lazenby who starred in only one Bond film, On Her Majesty’s Secret Service (1969), is the least popular James Bond with only 3% of the votes cast so far.
