Australian born actor given the difficult task of being the first non-Connery 007
. Much hated by many who haven't read On Her Majesty's Secret Service, he had the doubly difficult task of being the only Bond to genuinely fall for a girl, a trait that goes against a regular Bond story.
Used to be the Malboro man before being chosen to play Bond. Was actually asked to make a second Bond, but turned it down himself- a move he would later regard as the worst of his life. Recently got into Pierce Brosnan's bad books when the press overheard a comment he said about Pierce.

Guy 1: Yeah, true dat
