He appeared leading role in Hurlyburly, a West End play that was performed at the Old Vic in the West End.

Craig appeared in three films in 1998: Love and Rage, Elizabeth's biographical drama, and a BBC television film Love Is the Devil, in which Craig played small-time thief George Dyer, who was executed for his part in an attempt to murder Queen Elizabeth I of England, and the acclaimed film Love and Rage (1998), in which Craig played small-time thief George Dyer, who was portrayed by Derek Jacobi. Craig appeared in two television dramas named Shockers: The Visitor and Sergeant Telford Winter, which takes place in the confines of the trenches during the First World War during the 48 hours leading up to the Battle of the Somme.

After being released from a psychiatric hospital in the drama Some Voices (2000), Craig became a schizophrenic man who falls in love with a woman (played by Kelly Macdonald). Craig appeared in I Dreamed of Africa, based on Kuki Gallmann's life (played by Kim Basinger), and was also starred alongside Toni Collette in the dark comedy Hotel Splendide in 2000. In Lara Croft: Lara Croft (2001), based on the video game series Tomb Raider, Craig represented Angelina Jolie's character Lara Croft. He later confessed to being primarily interested in the paycheque in the poorly reviewed yet wildly lucrative film. Craig appeared in the four-part Channel 4 drama Sword of Honour, based on the same trilogy of novels in 2001. Craig appeared in the anthology film "Addicted to the Stars," directed by Michael Radford, and starred in the segment "Addicted to the Stars."

Sam Mendes' crime film Road to Perdition starred Irish mobster Connor Rooney, the son of the crime group's boss, in his second release of the year. In the BBC television drama Copenhagen (2002), Craig portrayed German theoretical physicist Werner Heisenberg, which depicts Heisenberg's participation in the German nuclear program during World War II. Craig appeared on stage in the original production of Caryl Churchill's play A Number, which ran from September to November 2002 at the Royal Court Theatre. Craig was nominated for Best Actor for his role as a man cloned twice by his father, according to a London Evening Standard Theatre Award. In the biographical film Sylvia (2003), which depicts the romance between the two poets, Ted Hughes appeared opposite Gwyneth Paltrow as Sylvia Plath. He appeared in The Mother as a man who is embroiled in an affair with his lover and best friend, who was played by Anne Reid.

Craig was portrayed in the film's credits as an anonymous London-based cocaine producer identified only as "XXX." Craig's "stunningly suave appearance" was lauded by Kevin Crust, a Los Angeles Times reporter, while Roger Ebert said it was "fascinating" in the film. Since being involved in a deadly crash together in Enduring Love (2004), Craig next appeared as a man who becomes dangerously close with a stranger (played by Rhys Ifans).

Craig appeared in three theatrical films in 2005, all of whom were supporting roles. Adrien Brody and Keira Knightley appeared in The Jacket, the year's first appearance. He made a brief appearance in the Hungarian film Fateless as a United States Army Sergeant who takes a liking to a teenage boy who lives in concentration camps. Craig's third and final role of the year was in Munich, directed by Steven Spielberg, as a South African driver involved in a clandestine Israeli government assassination attempt against eleven Palestinians suspected of participating in the Munich massacre in the 1972 Summer Olympics. Craig appeared in the BBC television film Archangel, based on Robert Harris' book, as an English academic who stumbles across a notebook that is supposed to have belonged to Joseph Stalin.

Craig was hired by Eon Productions in 2005 to play James Bond. He was uncertain of the position and was resistant to the producers' overtures at first. "It's been a long time trying to woo him," Barbara Broccoli, a long-time Bond co-producer, later explained in 2012. He sought counsel from colleagues and acquaintances, who told him, "life after Bond" was a daily life." He said he was "aware of the risks" of the Bond franchise, which he described as "a big machine that draws a lot of money." He wanted to give the character more "emotional depth." Craig, who was born in 1968, is the first actor to play James Bond since the Bond series started and after the death of Ian Fleming, the novels' writer.

Craig's role as Bond caused some controversy due to his physical appearance. Craig's blond-haired, 5-inch (1.78-meter) height was not to fit the image of the previous actors' taller, dark-haired Bond. During the entire production process, internet activists voiced their dissatisfaction and threatened to boycott the film in protest. Although Craig's appointment was contentious, a number of actors have publicly expressed their support. Sean Connery, Roger Moore, Pierce Brosnan, and Timothy Dalton, four of the five actors who had previously appeared in Bond, were among the five actors to have acted. Connery also spoke out about Craig's performance as Bond in 2008, describing him as "fantastic, magnificent in the role." George Lazenby, the other actor to have performed Bond, has since voiced his support for Craig. Clive Owen, who had been linked to the position, also spoke out in favour of Craig.

Casino Royale, the first film to open in the United States, premiered on November 14th and grossed US$594,239,066 worldwide, making it the highest-grossing Bond film until Skyfall's debut. Craig's role assassinated critical acclaim after the film was released. Both the Wii game GoldenEye 007, an enhanced version of the 1997 game for the Nintendo 64, and James Bond 007: Blood Stone. Craig lent his voice and likeness as James Bond. Craig appeared in two other films in 2006, including the drama Infamous as mass murderer Perry Edward Smith and as the lead actor in the French-language version of the French animated film Renaissance. Craig was accepted to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in 2006.

Craig appeared in The Invasion, Jack Finney's fourth film version of the novel The Body Snatchers, which received a hostile reception. In The Golden Compass, Philip Pullman's 2007 film adaptation of his book, he portrayed Lord Asriel. Craig made a cameo appearance in a sketch with Catherine Tate, who appeared in the guise of her character Elaine Figgis from The Catherine Tate Exhibition in March 2007. The sketch was created for the BBC Red Nose Day 2007 fundraising campaign. Craig appeared in the drama Flashbacks of a Fool as a washed-up Hollywood actor reflecting on his life in 2008, in comparison to Quantum of Solace and its accompanying video game. Craig starred as Tuvia Bielski, the leader of the Bielski partisans who fought in the forests of Belarus during World War II, saving 1,200 people in his last release of 2008.

He co-starred with Hugh Jackman in a limited engagement of the drama A Steady Rain, which appeared on Broadway in autumn 2009, for which he received raves, and he appeared in a limited number of the Schoenfeld Theatre. In David Fincher's 2011 adaptation of Stieg Larsson's book The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Craig starred as crusading journalist Mikael Blomkvist. He took up a leading role in Dream House, a psychological thriller directed by Jim Sheridan and co-starring Rachel Weisz, Naomi Watts, and Marton Csokas. It attracted mainly critical feedback and low box office results. In Cowboys & Aliens, an American science fiction Western film based on Scott Mitchell Rosenberg's 2006 graphic novel of the same name, Craig co-starred Harrison Ford and Olivia Wilde. Craig appeared in Steven Spielberg's animated film The Adventures of Tintin in 2011, portraying villainous pirate Ivan Ivanovitch Sakharine and his ancestor Red Rackham in a dual role.

Craig's third Bond film, "Skyfall," was postponed until September 22, 2012; the film, titled Skyfall, was eventually released on October 23, 2012. In the same year, he appeared as James Bond in the short film Happy and Glorious, in which he led Queen Elizabeth II to the 2012 Summer Olympics opening ceremony. Betrayal, a Broadway play starring He and his wife Weisz, ran from October 2013 to January 2014. Despite mixed reviews, the play opened at $17.5 million, becoming the second highest-earing Broadway play of 2013. Spectre, Craig's fourth Bond film, debuted in December 2014 and was released on October 26, 2015. After adjusting for inflation, his first four Bond films have grossed $3.5 billion worldwide.

In a promotional video, Craig, alongside other entertainers and athletes, read the poem "Invictus" prior to the inaugural Invictus Games in London in September 2014. In the 2015 film Star Wars: The Force Awakens, he made an uncredited cameo appearance as a stormtrooper. Craig appeared in a modern interpretation of William Shakespeare's tragedy Othello at the Off-Broadway New York Theatre Workshop in late 2016 and early 2017. Iago, the titular character and Craig as the primary antagonist. Diane Snyder of The Daily Telegraph applauded his "chilling" portrayal of Iago in the performance. Craig co-starred in Steven Soderbergh's comedy Logan Lucky, about two brothers who manage to pull off a heist during a NASCAR race. During the 1992 Los Angeles riots, Craig appeared alongside Halle Berry in the drama Kings set. The film premiered in September 2017 and was widely distributed by Orchard the following year; many film critics had harshly criticized it.

Craig appeared in Rian Johnson's black comedy Knives Down as Benoit Blanc, a detective investigating the sudden death of a family patriarch. It premiered at the 2019 Toronto International Film Festival to critical acclaim, and it was theatrically released in November. In 2020, it was announced that Craig had signed on to reprise the role in a forthcoming sequel. Danny Boyle's fifth Bond film No Time to Die was supposed to be directed by Danny Boyle and released in November 2019, but it was delayed after Boyle left the project. Cary Joji Fukunaga's film was released in cinemas from 30 September 2021 in the United Kingdom and in the United States on October 8th 2021, though it was postponed several times due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Craig said that No Time to Die would be his last James Bond film in appearances on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and The Graham Norton Show. Craig was nominated on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, a reference to Bond's code number "007") and right next to fellow Bond actor Roger Moore.

Craig appeared in a contemporary revival of Macbeth opposite Ruth Negga on Broadway in 2022. The process had been widely criticized. "Craig has some good moments, but does not capture Macbeth's transformation into a power-hungry tyrant," Variety put it.

Despite a 70-year reign of consummate duty, it turns out that the late Queen Elizabeth loved a good old mishap - to add some variety to the royal routine. That's according to no less an authority than Her Majesty's former aide, Samantha Cohen, who was interviewed recently for an Australian newspaper. 'The Queen had no ego, she was comfortable in herself, yet she loved it when things went wrong,' she explained to Melbourne-based Herald Sun. 'If a cake was not cutting or a plaque didn't unveil, because everything was so organised, it spiced her life up,' said Ms Cohen, known by the Queen as Samantha the Panther for her ferocious work ethic. For all that regal decorum, Her Majesty had a sharp sense of humour - devilment, even - and seemed to relish making others laugh, in fact, as these rather surprising video clips make clear…
