Sharing the same snap to his Instagram Stories, Regé-Jean added a reflective caption as he promoted his new sleep story on the guided mediation app Calm.

‘Dunno bout you, but it’s been a long, long, long past 18 months in the world… but the good folks at @calm might have a special something today to help you catch some Zzz,’ he penned online. 

The sizzling post comes after it was revealed earlier this month that the actor is now hot favourite to replace Daniel Craig as James Bond – now sitting at 4/5 in the betting stakes as bookmakers tip him to play the suave character next.  

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: ‘It’s looking increasingly likely Bond chiefs have made their minds up in the hunt for Daniel Craig’s replacement, with Regé-Jean Page now clear favourite in the betting.’

Elsewhere, Tom Hardy, at 4/1, is now the only other name priced shorter than 5/1 to land the role, having previously been a long-time favourite.

Other names suggested by the bookmaker include James Norton who comes in at 5/1, Luke Evans at 6/1, Henry Cavill at 8/1 and Idris Elba at 10/1. 

Daniel, 53, completes his 15-year, five-film run as James Bond in the highly anticipated No Time to Die, set for release on 30 September, with the actor recently admitting why he returned for one final movie.

There had been much speculation about whether the star was finished as 007 after 2015’s Spectre but he told Total Film last month that there was one story thread from his first Bond film, 2006’s Casino Royale, that coaxed him to return for one last time as the iconic secret agent.

‘I thought I probably was physically not capable of doing another. For me, it was very cut and dried that I wasn’t coming back,’ Daniel said plainly.

Producer Barbara Broccoli added that Craig was, ‘so exhausted after that film,’ adding they knew the actor needed a break.

Nearly two years passed before Barbara and her half-brother Michael Wilson, who run Eon Productions together, approached Daniel about doing one more Bond movie, when Daniel recalled a story thread from Casino Royale that he wanted to complete.

‘We started talking about it and I went, “There might be a story we need to finish here – something we started in Casino (Royale),”‘ Daniel said.

‘”Something to do with Vesper, and Spectre, and something that was connected, in a way.” It started to formulate. And I thought, “Here we go,”‘ he added.

The Vesper he’s referring to is Vesper Lynd, a character from Casino Royale played by Eva Green, who Bond fell in love with before it was revealed that she had been playing him the whole time.

It was revealed in 2015’s Spectre that Ernst Stavro Blofeld (Christoph Waltz) set up Vesper’s death as Ernst called himself the ‘author’ of all Bond’s pain.

Michael admitted Daniel’s five-movie arc feels like, ‘a little mini-series’ in the midst of the entire James Bond franchise, which Michael agrees with.

‘This film feels like a good bookend to Casino, because his emotional evolution gets to a place where we’ve never seen Bond before. So that’s pretty exciting,’ he said.

Daniel added, ‘On Casino he loses the love of his life, and then the shutters come down. On Quantum, the flawed movie that it is, it’s about revenge. And Skyfall is about M. It’s about loss. They’re big themes. And I think, “Yeah! Why not have big themes?”‘

When asked what the theme of No Time To Die is, Daniel added, ‘Love and family. Because what’s bigger than that?’ 

No Time to Die is slated to hit theatres on September 30.
