CRAIG FEARS BEING CALLED UP
The 53-year-old James Bond star stated he was “honoured” to obtain the title, however now fears he could really be referred to as up.
“The trouble is, I think now I’ve enlisted. There was a piece of paper with something written on it and I think there might be some small print there,” he stated.
The award-winning actor – who has performed the long-lasting spy character since 2006 – was bestowed with the honorary title forward of the premiere of his last Bond movie No Time to Die.
HONORARY COMMANDER DANIEL CRAIG
First Sea Lord Admiral Sir Tony Radakin, the top of the Royal Navy, confirmed the information in a press release.
“I am delighted to welcome honorary Commander Daniel Craig to the Royal Navy. Daniel Craig is well known for being Commander Bond for the last 15 years – a naval officer who keeps Britain safe through missions across the globe. That’s what the real Royal Navy does every day, using technology and skill the same way as Bond himself,” he stated.
DANIEL CRAIG IS RELIEVED WITH JAMES BOND RELEASE
It comes as Daniel prepares to bow out of his best-known position, leaving it behind after a decade and a half.
The actor informed how he was “relieved” the movie – which premiered on the Royal Albert Hall on Tuesday (28.09.2021) – is ready to be launched in cinemas following the uncertainty throughout the pandemic.
“We’ve had COVID so everything has to be put into perspective doesn’t it? I am greatly relieved, we make Bond movies for the cinema and we’re here and I couldn’t be happier about that,” he informed Sky News.
