Question for the James Bond fans here:
- Is the James Bond character supposed to be the same from the first movie, until the most recent? Or is James Bond also a code name similar to the 007 code name?

- Are the movies connected? I've basically only seen from Die Another Day, until the most recent, but I've always felt a bit confused about who some characters are.

I'm currently watching No Time to Die, and I'm quite significantly confused. Though, tbh I have forgotten what happened in Spectre


James Bond is the character, not the actor. Paradoxically, each actor makes Bond anew in their own way and with their own flair. The movies were not originally connected, except for recurring characters such as Q, M, Miss Moneypenny and Felix. Plot lines across films is a modern twist. If it has Daniel Craig in it, it's connected to other Craig Bonds.

@proactiveservices 🤣 I know that James bond is the character, not the actor. I was more trying to establish if eg in the James Bond world, are they all literally the same person (Ie is the Danial Craig James Bond, the same person as the Sean Connery James Bond, or if they are completely isolated "worlds", or if James Bond is actually a code name and they have a "real" name that they grew up with, and are assigned the James Bond name once they joined MI6.

@proactiveservices mainly wondering because I was halfway through No Time to Die, but honestly I don't know who half the characters are so I'm wondering if they are from older movies, but it seems they have all appeared in the other Daniel Craig 007 movies, but I've just forgotten. So I'm probably going to have to rewatch them all 😅

@mhamzahkhan Ah what I mean is, each actor always plays James Bond and he's meant to be the same character :-D

Love the scene where Eva Green's character (Moneypenny) dumps herself in front of Bond (Daniel Craig) and explains herself: "I'm the money".
