Craig Is Bond, Says His Mother

The mother of DANIEL CRAIG has unveiled her son as the new JAMES BOND, hours before movie bosses officially reveal the identity of the latest actor to play the spy.

Proud CAROL BLOND is overjoyed her boy has beaten a vast list of screen idols, including COLIN FARRELL and EWAN McGREGOR, to win the coveted 007 role.

She says, "We're thrilled to bits. This has come at a very good time in his career. He has worked hard all his life and this will be his most famous part.

"It will be life-changing, but I think he is old enough and experienced enough to handle it."

Bond film-makers will officially confirm which actor will take over from PIERCE BROSNAN, at 52 considered too old to play the secret agent, at a press conference later today (14OCT05), ending more than a year of speculation.

Filming on the new movie, an adaptation of SIR IAN FLEMING novel CASINO ROYALE, begins in January (06) - directed by MARTIN CAMPBELL.
