The difference is that I don't think Dalton particularly wanted to be a movie star, I always got the impression that he'd be just as happy playing Hamlet for the RSC or whatever. Whereas Craig seems to like the big paydays that come from movie stardom, but not the actual work (which includes promotional tours just as much as acting).

I think Craig is afraid of being “dalton”, in the US dalton is still thought of as a crap bond and a mistake. In movie circles he’s not thought of this way but the public here don’t view lazenby and dalton well.
For Craig being a dalton would mean he goes from a somebody everybody wants to know about to a honest actor doing the work on tv, movie and stage, that not the life for him


I think kris is right that dalton wasn’t into being a movie star in the old sense of the classic Hollywood use of the word. But he was happy to be nice to the fans and give us what we expected personally from the actor playing bond. I don’t think he felt hurt/limited by bond like Craig does, dalton was ready to find good jobs and continue to earn his reputation, as Connery and brosnan did. IMHO Moore enjoyed the role and was happy to play into the image of it is what people wanted, he didn’t try to redefine himself like Connery.

I wouldnt be surprised if Craig’s final big payday is the digital rights to his image. I imagine eon has tried for the last 20 years to secure Connery’s before he dies but we alll know babs would love to own Craig’s image the most.

Completely agreed. I think Dalton was always a classically trained stage actor in heart who loved acting for the sake of it more than any opportunity to be a true movie star with all the perks that status brings.
Although that didn't stop him from charming Sophie Marceau years before she became a Bond girl. So I heard.
