Although Ralph Fiennes had the potential to play James Bond himself, he was cast as M and first appeared in Skyfall, acting as an intermediary between M16 and the British government.
His name is Gareth Mallory and, as expected, he became the new Head of Secret Intelligence Service. M had a difficult past as a war prisoner, which explains his detachment from social circles, although he still manages to do his job well, supervising conspiracies and jumping into action whenever he feels the need to intervene. For someone who works in government, he’s lucid and open to new perspectives, gradually building up a relationship of mutual trust with Bond throughout the past movies.
