The name’s Bond. James Bond. But you already knew that, right?

Respect to cinema’s greatest super-spy, but the thrill of a new 007 movie is meeting the incoming villains and glamourpusses stood around the roulette wheel.

No time to spare?

Then read our quickfire character guide for James Bond – No Time To Die.

James Bond (Daniel Craig) in NO TIME TO DIE, an EON Productions and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios film.

James Bond

Played by: Daniel Craig

The low-down: Martini-glugging, casino-loitering, commitment-phobic MI6 agent.

Having foiled global evil since 1962’s Dr No, Bond is blissfully retired in Jamaica during the opening scenes of No Time To Die.

But that’s not going to last, obviously.

In short: Licence to thrill

 


Nomi (Lashana Lynch) in NO TIME TO DIE, an EON Productions and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios film.

Nomi

Played by: Lashana Lynch

The low-down: Since Bond’s retirement, Lynch’s ambitious ‘00’ agent has risen through the ranks – and she’s none too pleased to see this dinosaur interrupt her mission.

“You get in my way,” she warns him, “I’ll put a bullet in your knee. The one that works.” Ouch and ouch.

In short: Spy who didn’t love me

Paloma (Ana De Armas) in NO TIME TO DIE, an EON Productions and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios film.

Paloma

Played by: Ana De Armas

The low-down: This CIA operative is no cardboard cut-out, combining serious ass-kickery with what De Armas calls her “bubbly” and “irresponsible” nature.

“She’s flawed. It’s human. When I read the part, I was like, ‘Oh, wait, I can be a Bond girl. I’m that messy.’”

In short: Bond girl next door

 


Dr. Madeleine Swann (Léa Seydoux) in NO TIME TO DIE, an EON Productions and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios film.

Dr Madeleine Swann

Played by: Léa Seydoux

The low-down: While Bond’s romantic partners usually get a raw deal, this psychiatrist survived 2015’s Spectre and is still with Bond as No Time to Die opens.

But when a horrifying package arrives, hinting at a connection with Safin, 007 questions Swann’s loyalties.

In short: Doctor or double-agent?

Safin (Rami Malek) in NO TIME TO DIE, an EON Productions and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios film.

Safin

Played by: Rami Malek

The low-down:

The Oscar-winning Bohemian Rhapsody star set out to create a villain who would “really make people’s skin crawl”, and he excels as a mentally and physically scarred psycho with a shattered Japanese Noh mask. 

Hmmmmm. We wonder if the rumours about Safin really being a new version of Bond’s first megalomaniac villain Dr. No could be correct? Noh, Dr. No… No?

In short: Noh masked madman

 


Q (Ben Wishaw) in NO TIME TO DIE, an EON Productions and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios film.

Q

Played by: Ben Whishaw

The low-down: The geeky counterpoint to 007’s ALPHA bull in a china shop, Q (short for Quartermaster) supplies Bond’s gadgets and kit. He’s no pushover, and they respect each other's skills. No Time To Die’s Aston Martin DB5 minigun headlights? That’s Q’s handiwork.

In short: Bond’s closest MI6 ally

(L-R) Blofeld (Christoph Waltz) is interrogated by James Bond (Daniel Craig) in NO TIME TO DIE, an EON Productions and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios film.

Ernst Stavro Blofeld

Played by: Christoph Waltz

The low-down: Bested by Bond in Spectre, Blofeld is now rotting in MI6 custody but still seems one step ahead of the spy. With his slippery mind games and shoals of red herrings, he’s like a one-eyed, even creepier Hannibal Lecter.

In short: String-pulling puppet master

 


(L-R) Moneypenny (Naomie Harris), M (Ralph Fiennes) and Bill Tanner (Rory Kinnear) in NO TIME TO DIE, an EON Productions and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios film.

M

Played by: Ralph Fiennes

The low-down: Don’t be fooled by the office job. As a former British Army lieutenant colonel during The Troubles, Bond’s commanding officer is more pistol-packer than pen-pusher, and proved his mettle in the shootout from Spectre.

In short: Don’t call him a desk jockey

 


Moneypenny (Naomie Harris) in NO TIME TO DIE, an EON Productions and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios film.

Eve Moneypenny

Played by: Naomie Harris

The low-down: M’s PA is anything but a supporting character. This former field agent – she voluntarily took a support role after almost taking Bond out during Skyfall’s pre-credit sequence – is one of the few people 007 trusts implicitly when the chips are down.

In short: Bond’s ally and better nature

Felix Leiter

Played by: Jeffrey Wright

The low-down: Bond’s good buddy and CIA field agent Felix Leiter disturbs James’s tropical retirement to ask him a favour. Despite having the entire CIA at his disposal, Leiter tells Bond that he’s the only one he can trust for this job. But why? Is there trouble in the CIA?

In short: Bond’s friend in need

 


Primo

Played by: Dali Benssalah

The low-down: Primo is No Time to Die’s primary henchperson – a frighteningly focused mercenary and assassin employed by Safin to hunt James Bond and Madeleine Swann. He’s the one with the buzz cut fade and purple-graphic bomber jacket, trading punches with Bond in the trailers’ Matera chase.

In short: Safin’s ruthless muscle

 


Valdo Obruchev

Played by: David Dencik

The low-down: Quite fittingly for a scientist, Obruchev’s disappearance is the catalyst that brings Bond back into the spy game and onto Safin’s trail. Whatever research Obruchev was doing we have a sickening feeling it’s got everything to do with Safin’s desire to make the world ‘a little tidier’.

In short: Safin’s pet scientist

 


Logan Ash

Played by: Billy Magnussen

The low-down: Logan Ash is one of Felix Leiter’s CIA colleagues and is assigned by Leiter to support Bond in his hunt for Valdo Obruchev. We trust Leiter, but can’t help feeling Ash may not be the all-American boy scout he at first appears to be (but we can't wait to find out either way).

In short: Bond’s CIA support
