No Time to Die: Where else have you seen the cast?

Daniel Craig needs no introduction: the actor has played James Bond in the eponymous franchise since 2006. No Time to Die, which was released in Indian cinemas on September 30 marks his fifth and final outing as the suave British spy.

Directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga, the film sees Bond come out of retirement to take on a new mission at the behest of his CIA operative friend. 

There are several returning and new characters (and actors) in this 25th Bond film. Here is a guide to where else you may have seen the cast.

Ana de Armas
The actor has previously starred in the whodunit Knives Out with Craig. In No Time to Die she plays Paloma, a CIA agent who is attached to Bond on his new mission. Besides Knives Out, De Armas has notably been a part of Blade Runner: 2049. She will next emulate Marilyn Monroe in Netflix’s Blonde. She’s also part of Russo Brothers’ directorial The Gray Man with Ryan Gosling and Chris Evans.
Ralph Fiennes
Fiennes, who was almost unrecognisable as Lord Voldemort in the Harry Potter film series, returns as M, the head of MI6 here. Fiennes has starred in many blockbusters like the heartbreaking Schindler's List, the romantic comedy Maid in Manhattan, the actioner In Bruges, and Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel.
Christoph Waltz
Waltz returns as the scarred and embittered villain Ersnt Blofeld in the new film. The two-time Oscar winner is best remembered for playing the Nazi Hans Landa in Inglourious Basterds and King Schlutz in Django Unchained. His extensive filmography also includes Alita: Battle Angel, The Green Hornet and Water for Elephants. Waltz will be seen with Seydoux in Anderson’s The French Dispatch as well.
Léa Seydoux
The French actor reprises her role as Madeleine Swan, a character that first appeared in the 2015 Spectre. She is best known for her film Blue is the Warmest Color for which she was awarded the Palme D’or at the 2013 Cannes Film Festivals. In Hollywood she has held roles in Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds (2009), Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris (2011), Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol (2011) and Yorgos Lanthimos’ brilliant English-language debut The Lobster (2015). She will be seen next in Wes Anderson’s comedy The French Dispatch, which centres around a newspaper’s foreign bureau in Paris.
Rami Malek
Malek makes his debut in the franchise as villain Lyutsifer Safin, who was teased as an evil technological mastermind. Audiences will remember him from the sci-fi psychological thriller series Mr Robot (a performance that won him a best Actor Emmy), and his iteration of Queen frontman Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody.
Lashana Lynch
Lynch made history as the first Black female 007 in the male-dominated spy franchise. She plays Nomi, who entered active service after Bond’s retirement and was assigned his initials. You will remember her from Captain Marvel (2019), where she played a fighter pilot and one of Carol Danvers’ (Brie Larson) oldest friends.
