Sir Sean Connery was the first James Bond, starting off in Dr No in 1962.

He held the mantle for the following four official films, including From Russia With Love, Goldfinger, Thunderball and You Only Live Twice.

After this, he left the role, and George Lazenby took it on for one movie: On Her Majesty’s Secret Service in 1969.

Sir Sean could not do without the role, however, and returned for one more movie, Diamonds Are Forever in 1971, after which he stepped away from the official canon for good.

At this point, Sir Roger Moore came onto the scene for 1973’s Live and Let Die, and continued on for the six official movies which followed: The Man with the Golden Gun (1974); The Spy Who Loved Me (1977); Moonraker (1979); For Your Eyes Only (1981); Octopussy (1983); and A View to a Kill (1985).

After this, Timothy Dalton took on the mantle for two movies, The Living Daylights and Licence to Kill, leaving James Bond in the late 1980s.

Pierce Brosnan was the next Bond, who started with GoldenEye in 1995, after which he appeared in Tomorrow Never Dies, The World is Not Enough and Die Another Day.

The final James Bond was Daniel Craig, who started in Casino Royale in 2006, after which he appeared in three movies with a fourth to come soon.

The 1967 Casino Royale was a spoof of the earlier films, so has a very different tone to the others.

Sean Connery made a comeback as Bond in Never Say Never Again, which came out the same year as Octopussy and was, effectively, a remake of Thunderball.

There were arguments over rights with this film so, in the end, it has been left out of the canon.

Without these movies, No Time to Die is the 25th film featuring 007 and is to be released on November 12.
