List of recurring characters in the James Bond film series

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This is a list of the recurring characters and the cast members who portray them in the James Bond film series.

List indicator(s)
  • A dark grey cell indicates the character was not in the film.
  • The following listing only includes recurring characters in the films series. Characters which only appear in one film are not included here.
  • 'M' and 'Q' are MI6 posts, not character names, so a change of actors may reflect an in-universe replacement; this was explicit for M in both GoldenEye (Judi Dench's character is referred to as a newcomer) and Skyfall (Ralph Fiennes' character, Gareth Mallory, replaces Dench's character as M), as well as Q in Die Another Day (John Cleese's character was an assistant to Desmond Llewellyn's Q in The World Is Not Enough). There is only one clear case of a single M, Q or Moneypenny character switching actor: when Q, Major Boothroyd, switches from Peter Burton (Dr. No) to Desmond Llewellyn (From Russia with Love).
