Daniel Craig + Dame Judi Dench

These days Daniel Craig and Judi Dench hang out on the red carpet when they're not fighting crime.

Both veterans of classic British theatre, Daniel Craig and Dame Judi Dench are the perfect modern 007 and M match-up for fans of the Bond franchise. In fact, their onscreen chemistry is so inappropriately good that she’s the only high-ranking secret service official with whom we’d like to see Bond make out. (Just once. For a minute, maybe.)

The actress was made a Dame of the Order of the British Empire in 1988 while her co-star was still waiting tables in London — but these days, with a $17 million payday for ‘Skyfall’ and a $50 million deal for two more Bond films, he’s now the highest-paid 007 portrayer in history.
