The Daniel Craig James Bond movies were always about Vesper Lynd

Tim Grierson examines the impact of Vesper Lynd on James Bond through all of Daniel Craig’s time as 007.

It’s fair to say that James never got over the death of her character, Vesper Lynd — and neither could the filmmakers who worked on Bond pictures after Casino Royale. As No Time to Die makes clear again, the Craig films were always about Vesper and the number she did on Bond.

I love the fact that Casino Royale through No Time to Die, is an interconnected pentology and Lynd’s death haunts the next four films. It makes me want to watch all five Craig films back-to-back.
