Bond’s FAVORITE girl! As Daniel Craig’s ’little nightmare’ daughter joins him on the red carpet

Bond’s FAVORITE girl! As Daniel Craig’s ’little nightmare’ daughter joins him on the red carpet

30 September 2021 08:24 am

Daniel Craig's glamorous daughter Ella Loudon made a rare public appearance with her father at the No Time To Die premiere and after party last night.

While the James Bond actor may be one of the most famous men in the world, Ella, 29, stays largely out of the limelight.


Daniel, 53, shares Ella with ex-wife Fiona Loudon, who he divorced in 1994 after just two years of marriage. He also shares a daughter, whose name has not been publicly shared with his wife of 10 years Rachel Weisz, 51. Rachel also has a son, Henry Aronofsky, with her ex-fiance Darren Aronofsky. 

Glamorous Ella is following in her father's footsteps and has spent time carving out a career, appearing in stage productions for Shakespeare & Company and several short films.

She looked effortlessly chic in a shiny black suit and cream silk shirt as she left the party last night after previously posing with her famous father on the red carpet.

Her step-mother Rachel did not attend the glitzy London premiere of the new Bond film because she is reportedly filming in New York for the Amazon Prime series Dead Ringers. 

Unlike the offspring of other wealthy actors, Ella is unlikely to receive a large inheritance once her father dies, with Craig previously saying he would rather 'get rid' of all his money rather than give it to his children because he finds the concept of inheritance 'quite distasteful'. 

Ella is the only child of Craig and his first wife, actress, Fiona. The couple were married in 1992 and welcomed Ella before splitting in 1994.

Like Craig's daughter with Weisz, Ella was raised out of the spotlight. She spent her early childhood years in London before moving to a boarding school in Massachusetts at the age of 17. 

After graduating, Ella enrolled at NYU to study acting - the first significant indication that she intended to follow her parents into showbiz. 

However her time at the university, whose alumni include Lady Gaga, Alec Baldwin and Kristen Bell, was short-lived and she dropped out after a year. 

The actress has admitted in a previous interview how she suffered from depression, explaining how 'her head wasn't in the right place at the time'.     

Ella, who is also an artist, now lives between New York and LA, and has starred in a number of theatre productions.

She has shared a number of backstage shots from recent theatre productions with Shakespeare & Company, including Cymbeline.

The actress also starred on stage in a production of Macbeth with the company in Massachusetts. 

Meanwhile she has also appeared in a series of short films, including Trauma is a Time Machine in 2018 and Maneater in 2017.

She is set to star in a new film Short Term, which is due to be released next year.   

Ella regularly shares glamorous snaps on her Instagram account, along with candid pictures of her with her family - including one post in which she describes herself as her father's 'little nightmare'. 

Ella, who is extremely photogenic, often gives fans an insight into her enviable lifestyle on Instagram. 

Back in 2018 she shared a black-and-white selfie of her and her father on his 50th birthday.  

Captioning the snap, she wrote: 'It’s my Pops 50th. Bloody proud and and love you always and forever. 

'Happy f****** birthday. Love from your little nightmare.'    

Ella was one of only four people present when her father tied the knot with Rachel in a secret ceremony in New York back in 2011. 

Ella clearly enjoys a close relationship with step-mother Rachel, recently sharing a post about the actress being the honoree of a film festival in Massachusetts.

She has also previously described how she often goes vintage shopping with both her mother and her step-mother, Rachel, showing their bond.   

Yet Ella won't inherit any of Daniel's fortune. The actor, who is worth an estimated £116 million, recently told Candis magazine: 'Isn't there an old adage that if you die a rich person, you've failed?' 

He continued: 'I think Andrew Carnegie [the Scottish-born US industrialist] gave away what in today's money would be about $11 billion, which shows how rich he was because I'll bet he kept some of it too. 

'But I don't want to leave great sums to the next generation. I think inheritance is quite distasteful. My philosophy is: get rid of it or give it away before you go.' 

Daniel and Rachel very rarely talk about their children, with Daniel previously stating that their privacy was 'hugely important'.
