Top-secret Weisz wedding for Bond star Craig

26th June 2011, Comments 0 comments

James Bond actor Daniel Craig and Oscar-winning fellow-Brit Rachel Weisz have married after a whirlwind six-month romance, reports said Sunday quoting their publicists.

Craig, 43, and Weisz, 41, tied the knot Wednesday in an ultra-secret New York ceremony. Reports said only four guests were in attendance, two family friends acting as witnesses, Craig's teenage daughter and Weisz's young son.

The pair team up in the forthcoming "Dream House", playing a married couple who relocate to a quaint New England town only to discover that their idyllic new home has been the scene of horrific murders.

Craig and Weisz have reportedly been friends for years but began a largely hush-hush romance on the set of the film, which is to hit cinemas in September.

Craig, star of several Bond flicks, "Layer Cake," "Munich" and later this year "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo," has a daughter from his previous marriage to Scottish actress Fiona Loudon.

He was engaged to long-term film producer girlfriend Satsuki Mitchell for five years before they split in 2010.

Weisz, who won a supporting actress Academy Award for her performance in the 2005 drama "The Constant Gardener," has a son from her nine-year relationship with "Black Swan" director Darren Aronofsky. Their relationship also ended last year.

Craig has had two outings as MI6 agent 007, "Casino Royale" (2006) and the "Quantum of Solace" (2008). He is due to reprise the role in a 23rd Bond instalment, which is being directed by another Brit, Sam Mendes, and is due out in November 2012.
