Daniel Craig could serve in the Royal Navy after being made an honorary commander.
The 53-year-old actor was presented with the title, which gives him the same rank and rank as James Bond.
Although Craig said he was “honoured” to receive the title, there is now the possibility he could actually be called up by the Navy to fight for his country in a future war.
He said: “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.”
Craig admits the best thing about the distinction is that it made his mum Carol happy as his late father Timothy served in the Navy.
First Sea Lord Admiral Sir Tony Radakin presented him with his rank. He is the head of Royal Navy and worked alongside Daniel on No Time To Die.
Sir Tony said: “I am delighted to welcome honorary Commander Daniel Craig to the Royal Navy.”
On Tuesday night, Daniel attended the premiere for his final James Bond film, No Time To Die in London.
The premiere took place 18 months later than previously planned due to the delays caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
Along with the main characters who attended the star-studded event, the Royal Seal of Approval was given to the occasion by The Duke, Duchess, and Duchess Of Cambridge. Also, the Prince and Duchesss in Wales and Duchesss Cornwall were present.
Sky News spoke with Daniel, a Bond star who said that he feels relieved that the film industry is slowly recovering its footing.
He said:” 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.”
Since Daniel announced that he would be stepping down from playing the iconic character, much speculation has taken place regarding who the next actor would be to replace him.
Although the Skyfall star is fairly open about who takes the leading role, he has made fans aware that a male actor should still play the protagonist.
In addition to this, Daniel also made it clear that he would not be happy if Wolverine actor Hugh Jackman took the reins.
When asked by presenter Lorraine about Hugh becoming the main man, Daniel replied: “Over my dead body.”
