Can you believe Bond #4 is 65? Time flies.
To me, he'll always be that fresh face that came out of nowhere and brought Bond back to its Fleming roots.

I'm under the impression you're the best.

There are those who say he is actually 67. Are they wrong?

As far as birth records go, the closest I ever got was a Peter Dalton registered in Derbyshire in 1946. That could well be him. But it's difficult to know for certain.

While that isn't definitive proof, it is straight from him, and not some magazine article or press release that could have transposed a number or made a simple math error.

Yeah, it always used to be 1946 until IMDb decided otherwise.
no, I remember reading one article back in 86 when he was announced that said he was 38 and another article that said he was 40. Perhaps Dalton himself really isn't sure how old he is

Of courser, like IMDB, it's subject to editing.

Oh, and happy belated, Timothy.

He was approached for OHMSS. But he was probably only asked to audition for it, rather than being offered the role, as is sometimes said.
Wikipedia is usually more accurate than IMDb, when it comes to actor bios... and Dalton wasn't approached for OHMSS; judging by the dates he gives, he was most likely approached in the run-up to bringing back Connery for DAF, along with Michael Gambon and (most notoriously) John Gavin.
I suspect Dalton only became a serious prospect for Bond after he appeared in Cromwell (which was directed by Broccoli's chum Ken Hughes).
