Boyd has written a new Bond novel, set in 1969, in the style of original author Ian Fleming.
He told The Independent: "If there was going to be an actor to play my James Bond, I'd choose another actor who's been in a film of mine and who is also called Daniel.
"Daniel Day-Lewis actually resembles the Bond that Fleming describes. He was a tall, lean, rangy, very dark-haired, good-looking man. There's a sense that image is what he saw his Bond looking like."
Boyd also said he felt that the most recent actors were getting "further and further away from Fleming's Bond".
He added: "The current Bond is fantastically interesting even though the current films are half a century on than the novels. The link gets fainter and fainter. The Bond films are all contemporary. »
