Stuff my orders! If M fires me, I'll thank him for it!
~ James Bond

Commander James Bond is the main protagonist of 007 series. He is a Senior Operational Officer of the 'Double-O' ('00') Branch, an ultra-covert Black Ops unit within the British Secret Intelligence Service (MI6). As an agent of MI6, Bond holds code number "007". The 'double-O' prefix indicates his discretionary licence to kill in the performance of his duties.

Finally, Timothy Dalton took over the role from Roger Moore in 1987 two years after Moore's departure in 1985. He appeared in The Living Daylights and Licence to Kill. Legal issues between the Bond producers and the studio over distribution rights resulted in the cancellation of a proposed third Dalton film scheduled for release in 1991 and put the series on a hiatus for several years until 1995. In 1994, Dalton announced that he would not return in the upcoming Bond film, Goldeneye before the role was given to Pierce Brosnan.

Dalton was approached by the Bond Producers twice before 1987, firstly in 1969, but Dalton thought he was too young to play the role. Also in 1979, but didn't accept the role as he stated that he disliked the parodic direction the 007 series was going.

Film biography

Shared background

Although little of Bond's past is directly addressed in Timothy Dalton's films, it is assumed that his Bond continues to share the common background laid out by the Ian Fleming novels and preceding Bond films.

In the novels, James' parents (Andrew Bond of Scotland and Monique Delacroix-Bond of Switzerland) were killed in a climbing accident in the French Alps when he was 11. He had acquired a first-class command of the French and German languages during his early education, which he received entirely abroad. After the death of his parents, Bond goes to live with his aunt, Miss Charmian Bond, where he completes his early education. Later, he briefly attends Eton College at "12 or thereabouts", but is removed after two halves because of girl trouble with a maid. After being sent down from Eton, Bond was sent to Fettes College in Scotland, his father's school.

There is also a veiled reference to Bond having been married "a long time ago", which is implied to have ended tragically. (This is a reference to the novel and film On Her Majesty's Secret Service, in which Bond's new wife Tracy Draco is murdered by his archnemesis, Ernst Stavro Blofeld.)

In the first film, The Living Daylights, Bond is ordered to kill rogue Soviet general Georgi Koskov, who is working with arms dealer Brad Whitaker to smuggle weapons to terrorists.

In the second film, Licence to Kill, Bond's friend, CIA agent Felix Leiter, is attacked and maimed by thugs working for drug lord Franz Sanchez, who also rape and murder his wife, Delia. M orders Bond not to intervene in the investigation, but a vengeful 007 quits MI6 so he can go after Sanchez. Eventually, he kills Sanchez with the help of pilot (and love interest) Pam Bouvier, and is reinstated.
