Craig was most recently seen in Rian Johnson’s hugely successful film, Knives Out.

Directed by Mike Nichols, the play ran for 14 weeks and grossed $17.5 million. Daniel’s most recent theatre venture was the off-Broadway production of Othello, alongside David Oyelowo and directed by Sam Gold, at the New York Theatre in Autumn 2016.
In 2009 Craig starred in a twelve-week Broadway run of A Steady Rain. Craig played opposite Hugh Jackman in this contemporary American play.
