Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz Marry


In a quiet ceremony, stage and screen veterans Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz were married on June 22, according to Reuters.

Daniel Craig made his Broadway debut in A STEADY RAIN opposite Hugh Jackman. Craig succeeded Pierce Brosnan as filmdom's new James Bond in the 2006 film Casino Royale and the 2008 Bond release Quantum of Solace. His popularity as a leading man spread beyond his native England with the success of the 2004's Layer Cake (also with Sienna Miller). Prior to that he was known to TV audiences as the star of the BBC miniseries Our Friends in the North (1996), and to movie audiences as Paul Newman's son in the 2002 film Road to Perdition (with Tom Hanks and Jude Law), and as poet Ted Hughes in Sylvia (2003, starring Gwyneth Paltrow as author Sylvia Plath).

Rachel Weisz's breakthrough stage role was that of Gilda in Welsh director Sean Mathias's 1995 West End revival of Noel Coward's 1933 play DESIGN FOR LIVING at the Gielgud Theatre. Her other stage work includes the role of Catherine in a London production of Tennessee Williams' SUDDENLY LAST SUMMER and Evelyn in Neil LaBute's THE SHAPE OF THINGS at The Almeida Theatre. In 2009 she played Blanche DuBois in a Donmar revival of A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE, for which she won the Critics' Circle Theatre Award for Best Actress. She additionally won the 2010 Olivier Award for Best Actress in a Play for the production, which transferred to the West End.

The couple connected while filming Dream House, which is set for release in September.
