Which Bond Is The Strongest?

No, we’re not talking the covalent chemical kind. Unless it’s in his blood-vodka levels. We mean of course the smart (or awful?) punning, gun toting, martini supping, womanizing creation of Ian Fleming and star of the big screen. Place your bets as we look at actors jostle for this particular honor. Quite an image.


Sean Connery

Making the first films of the franchise, he is credited with defining the rogue-ish charm and suave of the role in the first seven screen outings for the character (if you count Never Say Never Again). Notably well-mannered yet tough acting and ruthless in Goldfinger, using smart moves and smarter gadgets, he set the groundwork for the deep which later Bonds would emulate. Probably not his strong eyebrows though.


George Lazenby

Does anyone remember George Lazenby? No? An Aussie model with not quite the same acting punch as his forbear, and only lasting one film, he sported the strongest chin of the lot, anyway.


Daniel Craig

Definitely the more brutish incarnation of the wise cracking hitman, they had to tone down his oversized guns a bit by having him saunter out of the water in that speedo. If you fancy feeling a bit like the blond Bond in Casino Royale, only without the budget, glam locations and in your own home, you can always bet on red or black and be thankful you don’t have his sixty-fag a day and copious vodka habit. Here’s hoping a win funds a nice jaunt to Monaco.


Roger Moore

Credited with keeping the franchise afloat when it was going through a rough phase in popularity, his humorous moments of camp lightened up the scenes in Live and Let Die and Octopussy, the latter seeing him dismantle a bomb in a clown suit. You have to have some strength to hold up an entire struggling film series – with warm charm to boot.


Timothy Dalton

If you are a relatively rare Timothy Dalton as-best-Bond fan, you’ll appreciate the praise he received for giving the most ‘real’ depiction of Bond. An antidote to Roger Moore’s flippant embodiment, you saw a man with a dark and troubled past and psyche. He showed reluctance to kill, and didn’t really like carrying out the act (but would always follow through in particularly violent style anyway) in Licence To KIll. That takes a degree of mental strength. No? Well. That’s all we got.

In short, we don’t really know who qualifies as the stronger bond, each of their points considered, but every generation tends to go with the one they remember. We’ll let you decide.

I do remember George Lazenbee, but from the Pretender, not Bond

What about Pierce Brosnan? He’s my second favorite Bond after Connery.

I am thrilled to be able to say that I shared a glass of champagne with James Bond! When I was “Bunny Deana” at the London Playboy Club, more than 40 years ago now, I was privileged to be crowned Playboy Bunny of The Year by George Lazenby (Bond at the time in ‘On Her Majesty’s Secret Service’) and I shall treasure the memory forever. The very precious photo of George performing the crowning, immaculately dressed in his beautiful Bond-style suit, is a proud part of my unique, personal “Bunny Deana’s Playboy Photo Album”, now available to view online.
