Sharing his thoughts on the honour, the actor in his acceptance speech said, “ I never thought I'd hear myself saying this, but it's an absolute honor to be walked all over in Hollywood. During the event, Rami Malek had paid tribute to Daniel by heaping praises on him. "If you are lucky enough to play a bad guy, you would better make sure the good guy is legendary. And this good guy is the best," Rami Malek said.

The 53-year-old was introduced by Bond producers Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, along with his co-star Rami Malek in the latest 007 outings No Time To Die. The honour bestowed on the actor comes after the film No Time To Die won critical appreciation and earned the highest opening weekend takings of any Bond movie in the UK. Despite the delay in the release because of the Coronavirus pandemic, the film received much praise from the fans. 

Malek, who won an Oscar for his portrayal of Queen singer Freddy Mercury in the movie Bohemian Rhapsody, plays supervillain Safin in the latest installment of Bond's adventures. The Hollywood Hall of Fame consists of stars with the names of several icons from the film industry. Each star in the Hall of Fame is an honour to the hard work and dedication the actor has put in for years on end. The stars had a beautiful tint of red and pink and rest on an elegant black background. The names of each actor are inscribed in gold.
