Broccoli has worked on the last nine Bond films, and has also executive produced debbie tucker green’s ear for eye.

US-born Michael G Wilson has headed Eon Productions alongside his sister since the death of Broccoli’s father, Albert ‘Cubby’ Broccoli, in 1996. He has been a producer or executive producer on every Bond film since Moonraker, and has also written the screenplays for Bonds including Licence To Kill, The Living Daylights and A View To A Kill. Both Broccoli and Wilson have been awarded for services to film, drama, philanthropy and skills.

He joined Pinewood in 2008, and is currently a member of the British Film Commission advisory board and the British Screen advisory board.

UK actor Daniel Craig, who bowed out as James Bond in No Time to Die, has been made a Companion of the Order of St Michael and St George. It is the same honour that Bond received and is usually reserved for diplomats for their work overseas.
