I've only recently watched "The Last Jedi", which inspired this question.

Name an actor/actress with a credited role in both a James Bond movie and a Star Wars movie.

For James Bond, any of the 24 Eon produced films, so not the 1960s "Casino Royale" or "Never Say Never Again".
For Stars Wars, episodes I to VIII, "Rogue One" and "Solo".

And credited role, so Daniel Craig playing an uncredited stormtrooper in "The Force Awakens" doesn't count.

I've got a list of five, some very obscure, but I won't guarantee I haven't missed any.

Christopher Lee is the obvious guess, I suppose.

Has this got something to do with silent letters?

Nope, it is (or was) a physical thing.

I really haven't a clue about this one. Any hints?

This question seems to have dried up, so I'll give you the other answers I found.

Benicio del Toro played Dario in "Licence To Kill" and DJ in "The Last Jedi"

Mads Mikkelsen played Le Chiffre in "Casino Royale" and Galen Erso in "Rogue One"

Julian Glover played Kristatos in "For Your Eyes Only" and General Veers in "Empire Strikes Back"

Jeremy Bulloch, who was inside the Boba Fett costume, has appeared in a few Bond films including occasionally playing Q's assistant Smithers.

I think you're going to have to reveal the answer, jamesthegill. No one has come anywhere close in five weeks.

I'd be very surprised if that were the answer. For one thing, there's currently a London Road in Carlisle.
