The actor's friend Jason Isaacs believes the 43-year-old star – who tied the knot with actress Rachel Weisz in a surprise low-key ceremony last month – is the perfect choice to play James Bond because he "exudes sex", though his personal life is now much tamer than that of the iconic British spy.

Asked if he would like to be James Bond, Jason said: “No, Dan is Bond - Daniel is one of the sexiest men!

“The thing about Dan is women all obviously want to sleep with him and men all think he's having more relationships with women than they are - and they're right! But not anymore, thank God, because he's married and very happy but he just exudes sex. He's the perfect Bond.”

Jason portrays Death Eater Lucius Malfoy in the 'Harry Potter' movie franchise and admits he is "heartbroken" to see the series come to an end with the release of 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2'.

Speaking on UK TV show 'Daybreak', he said: “I haven’t had enough, I would do it forever. I’m completely heartbroken by it being over, I can’t pretend.

“The good thing is they kept the quality of them … but this is one story essentially that we managed to tell over a decade, and there’s not a weak bit in it which is fantastic.”
