Washington, Nov 10 : Actor Robert Davi is glad that he is on top of Bond baddies list at last.
Davi played Bond villain Franz Sanchez in 'License to Kill', but fears his role was overshadowed by fans' dislike for Timothy Dalton at the time - and he never got the credit he felt he was due.
However, fans are rediscovering the 1989 movie and elevating Davi up the list of super villains online, thanks to the ongoing lure of Bond.
"I know they're voting now in Entertainment Weekly (magazine) for the Bond villains and it seems like my Bond villain is being more and more appreciated because initially, when the film came out, there was a backlash with Timothy Dalton," Contactmusic quoted Davi, as telling WENN.
"The revisionist people, who are seeing the Bond films, the way they're bringing them to a reality now are seeing Timothy again and appreciating him, and the film and appreciating me as one of the top Bond villains.
"Some of the real Bond aficionados - I run into them all the time - and they rank me as one of the three top villains," he added.
