Timothy Dalton was born to an American mother of Italian-Irish descent, and English father who was a captain in the Special Operations Executive during WWII. He went to Herbert Strutt Grammar School, and was a member of the Air Training Corps at LXX (Croft & Culcheth) Squadron during his teenage years. Dalton joined the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in 1964, and that’s when his career as an actor started.

His debut on TV came in 1966 in the movie “Troilus and Cressida”, and he also participated in ten episodes of “Sat’day While Sunday” in 1967. Later, Dalton appeared Anthony Harvey’s Oscar-winning biography-drama called “The Lion in Winter” (1968) with Peter O’Toole, Katharine Hepburn, and Anthony Hopkins, and after that in “Cromwell” (1970) starring Richard Harris, Alec Guinness, and Robert Morley, “The Voyeur” (1970), and starred in “Wuthering Heights” (1970), which only helped him built his career, and also increase his net worth.

Dalton continued to earn his money mainly thanks to his work in theater until 1978, but had two other parts in the meantime: in “Mary, Queen of Scots” (1971) starring Vanessa Redgrave, Glenda Jackson, Patrick McGoohan, and “The Executioner” (1975) with Dirk Bogarde, Ava Gardner, and Bekim Fehmiu. From 1978, Dalton frequently appeared in TV and film, starting with “Sextette” (1978), and resuming in “Agatha” (1972) starring Dustin Hoffman and , and as Oliver Seccombe in the series “Centennial” (1978-1979), increasing further his net worth.

He was busy in the 80’s with parts in “Flash Gordon” (1980), “Chanel Solitaire” (1981), and had a leading role in series “Jane Eyre” (1983) playing Edward Fairfax Rochester. Dalton then appeared in “The Master of Ballantrae” (1984), in three episodes of “Mistral’s Daughter” (1984), “Antony and Cleopatra” (1984), “The Doctor and the Devils” (1985) with Jonathan Pryce and Twiggy, “Florence Nightingale” (1985), and in series “Sins” (1986).

He was twice offered the chance to succeed Sean Connery as the new James Bond, but Dalton first time refused because he thought that he was too young, and the second time because he had other arrangements and a busy schedule. However, he later accepted, and had his debut as James Bond in the 1987 “The Living Daylights”, and later filmed another Bond film entitled “Licence to Kill” (1989). With these two roles, Dalton’s net worth significantly increased, and he became even more popular.

Between the two Bonds, Dalton played in “Hawks” (1988) and “Brenda Starr” (1989) with Brooke Shields, and later starred in “The King’s Whore” (1990) and “The Rocketeer” (1991) with Billy Campbell, Jennifer Connelly, and Alan Arkin, before appearing in an episode of “Tales from the Crypt” (1992). Timothy played Eddie Myers in the TV mini-series “Framed” (1992), had a leading role in the movie “Red Eagle” (1994), and portrayed Rhett Butler in mini-series “Scarlett” (1994), which added a considerable amount to his net worth.

By the end of the 90’s, Dalton had played parts in “Salt Water Moose” (1996), “The Beautician and the Beast” (1997), “The Informant” (1997), “Made Men” (1999), and played Julius Caesar in “Cleopatra” (1999). In 2000’s, Timothy appeared in “Time Share” (2000) with Nastassja Kinski, “Possessed” (2000), “American Outlaws” (2001), “Hercules” (2005), “Hot Fuzz” (2007) with Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, and Martin Freeman, and in two episodes of “Doctor Who” (2009-2010).

Most recently, Dalton played in “The Tourist” (2010) starring Johnny Depp, Angelina Jolie, and Paul Bettany, in six episodes of series “Chuck” (2010-2011), and in Showtime series “Penny Dreadful” (2014-2016), where he played Sir Malcolm Murray. Thanks to this role in the highly rated show, his wealth improved considerably.

Regarding his personal life, Timothy Dalton dated actress Vanessa Redgrave from 1971 to 1986, and later was in a relationship with musician Oksana Grigorieva, before marrying her in 1997, and they have a son, Alexander Dalton, but have apparently separated. Dalton is a big fan of Manchester City F.C. and is often seen at the games at Etihad Stadium.

1Richard Burton was Welsh; Tom Jones is Welsh, and we Welshmen like to think of ourselves as heroes - on screen and off!
2[on GoldenEye (1995)] I was supposed to make one more but it was cancelled because MGM and the film's producers got into a lawsuit which lasted for five years. After that, I didn't want to do it anymore.
3There was a time when Sean Connery gave up the role. I guess I, alongside quite a few other actors, was approached about the possibility of playing the part. That was for On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969). I was very flattered, but I think anybody would have been off their head to have taken over from Connery. I was also too young. Bond should be a man in his mid-thirties, at least - a mature adult who has been around. I was not approached for Live and Let Die (1973), but there was a time in the late 1970s, when Roger may not have done another one, for whatever reason. They were looking around then, and I went to see Mr. Broccoli in Los Angeles. At that time, they didn't have a script finished and also, the way the Bond movies had gone - although they were fun and entertaining - weren't my idea of Bond movies. They had become a completely different entity. I know Roger, and think he does a fantastic job, but they were different kinds of movies. Roger is one of the only people in the world who can be fun in the midst of all that gadgetry. But in truth my favorite Bond movies were always Dr. No (1962), From Russia with Love (1963), and Goldfinger (1964).
4That's something I think about constantly because it has to be for a purpose, it's not just self-indulgence. People often say, "Well, it's just the way I express myself." That's no good, that's narcissistic, juvenile. You work to express the piece because you believe the piece has value and that can be communicated to other people who will see something new of life because of it. You must believe that it will in some small or big way make a difference to their lives.
5He's terrific. I think Casino Royale (2006) is a huge step forward - a leap forward. It's great and Daniel's great. He got a lot of stick when he was doing it. There was a lot of negative press. He was criticized by people who didn't have a clue what was in the script or what he was going to look like in the film, which was deeply unfair. I said how wrong everyone was at the time because he's a very gifted actor. I'm pleased that the movie turned out as well as it did.
6I think most people thought it was a pity I wasn't allowed to grapple so much with the ladies. And he wasn't allowed to smoke; I think I managed to get a few puffs in, which they then cut out.
7Roger Moore was brilliant but the movies had gone a long way from their roots; they had drifted in a way that was chalk and cheese to Sean. And I think Daniel Craig will work well. I think he's going to be terrific, he's got danger and vulnerability.
8I don't think that Bond is a role model or that he should be a role model. He's only part of a particular kind of story. I don't think anyone should grow up wanting to go around killing people. I don't think anyone should grow up wanting to be a secret agent.
9"When I saw those posters of Pierce standing there, I suddenly thought to myself, Jesus, I don't have to stand there with a gun to the side of my head anymore! I suddenly found the most tremendous sense of liberation, and I started to feel more like myself than I'd felt in years! I suddenly felt free!" (describing his feelings on whether or not in retrospect he made the right decision not to make the James Bond film GoldenEye (1995))
10"It's very important to make the man believable so that you can stretch the fantasy. Whether people like this kind of Bond is another question." (on his approach to the role of James Bond)
11"I felt as free as a bird" - describing driving down Sunset Boulevard and seeing a billboard that had Sean Connery, Roger Moore, and Pierce Brosnan on it, but no Timothy Dalton.
12"I don't think I've drunk one since I've left the Bond movies. Every bar you go in, there's always some wisecrack, 'Oh, yours will be a Martini, shaken, not stirred!' You get sick and tired of that." - talking about all of the vodka martinis he would get whenever he walked into a bar, while he was playing Bond.
13On playing a character: "You can't relate to a superhero, to a superman, but you can identify with a real man who in times of crisis draws forth some extraordinary quality from within himself and triumphs but only after a struggle. Real courage is knowing what faces you and knowing how to face it." (source: "The Making of LICENCE TO KILL" by Sally Hibbin. Eon Productions Ltd. and Glidrose Publications Ltd., 1989.)
1Was originally cast as Benedict in Last Action Hero (1993), but was replaced by Charles Dance. This would have been the second of two times that he would have been in a film with Frank McRae. The first (as it turns out, the only) film was Licence to Kill (1989).
2He appears in Penny Dreadful (2014) with Eva Green. Green had previously appeared in Casino Royale (2006) and The Golden Compass (2007) with Daniel Craig, both times as a character previously played by Dalton.
3Lives in London, England and Los Angeles, California.
4He was born in Wales, to English parents, Dorothy (Scholes) and Peter Dalton-Leggett.
5Attended the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts (RADA) but dropped out before he completed his studies.
6Had been approached for the role of James Bond in 1968 when Sean Connery had left the franchise but turned it down as he felt he was too young. He was approached again in 1980 but refused because he did not like the lighthearted direction the film had been going in.
7Initially agreed to play James Bond for a third time in GoldenEye (1995), but after a lengthy series of lawsuits between the studio and producers concerning the ownership of the character James Bond, and further script delays, he resigned from the role, believing that too much time had passed since Licence to Kill (1989).
8Publicly announced he would not be returning as James Bond in GoldenEye (1995) on 12 April 1994. Two months later, Pierce Brosnan was revealed as his successor.
9Has played Lord Asrail in a London stage adaptation of the His Dark Materials trilogy. In the film The Golden Compass (2007), this role is played by Daniel Craig, who also succeeded him in the role of James Bond.
10Desmond Llewelyn claimed in an interview of Dalton that his portrayal of James Bond was closer to Ian Fleming's original novel version of the character than any other Bond actor.
11(1980-1994) Companion of Vanessa Redgrave.
12Dalton's Bond was the last to smoke cigarettes.
13His colder, grittier portrayal of James Bond is considered by many fans of the franchise to be the closest to the characterization of Bond from the original novels by Ian Fleming, but was greeted with a mixed reaction from the general public following twelve years of Roger Moore's much more lighthearted portrayal.
14His partner, Oksana Grigorieva, gave birth in London to a boy, Alexander, on 7 August 1997.
15According to the James Bond film tailors in London, at 6' 2" he is the tallest of all the Bond actors. The tailors who have fitted and measured each of the 5 Bonds over the years claim the following heights for each of the other Bond actors: Sean Connery 6' 1 1/2" without shoes, George Lazenby 6' 1 1/2" without shoes, Roger Moore 6' 1" without shoes and Pierce Brosnan 6' 1" without shoes.
16He says that his favorite James Bond films are the first three Bond movies: Dr. No (1962), From Russia with Love (1963) and Goldfinger (1964).
17In 1986, he and Sylvester McCoy were performing together with Vanessa Redgrave in a season of Shakespeare at the Theatre Royal, Haymarket. Dalton and McCoy sympathized with each other about the difficulty in finding good long-term acting jobs. A year later, McCoy was cast as the Seventh Doctor in Doctor Who (1963) and Dalton was cast as James Bond in The Living Daylights (1987).
18Loves fishing, especially in the Pacific Ocean.
19In the Charlie's Angels (1976) episode "Fallen Angel", Dalton's character, Damien Roth, is referred to as being like James Bond, which was 8 years before Dalton's first Bond outing.
