Steve Illing is a Daniel Craig lookalike. With his closely cropped hair and steely blue eyes, this James Bond double bears an uncanny resemblance to Daniel Craig, the latest James Bond incarnation.
He not only looks good in a dinner jacket (he can tie his own bow too!) but also sports Bond’s cool demeanour and the high tech gadgetry! Having said this, Steve does admit though that he his still working on making the Aston Martin car a reality.
Born in London, England Steve Illing received numerous comments regarding his similarity to Bond even before Daniel Craig starred in Casino Royale back in 2006. Since then Steve’s doubling work has taken him all over Europe on various assignments; be they functions, parties or James Bond promotional work.

In fact, he even had a stint in an exclusive London bar making the very same vodka Martini’s that the spy enjoys! He does stress though that he wasn’t the double chosen for the famous parachute jump over the London Olympic arena in August 2012; he leaves that to the stunt men!
It has been said over the last six years as the preferred 007 double that Steve as James Bond is as cool as cocktails Bond drinks. In short, his approach is simple: always in character yet never taking himself too seriously.
The James Bond series focuses on a fictional British Secret Service agent created in 1953 by writer Ian Fleming, who featured him in twelve novels and two short-story collections. Since Fleming’s death in 1964, eight other authors have written authorised Bond novels or novelisations. (Wikipedia).
