Craig to be honoured as British Royal MarineJune 2nd, 2008 - 2:27 pm ICT by admin
London, June 2 (IANS) James Bond star Daniel Craig is set to be made an honorary member of the British Royal Marines. In 2006, Craig starred as a Bond who is an MI6 agent with a career in the Royal Navy in “Casino Royale”. The 40-year-old actor will now receive the prestigious Green Beret but before that he will have to pass the fitness test, contactmusic.com reports.
“We were the ones who took Daniel to the press conference when he was revealed as the new James Bond. He was great, a really good guy and he was very appreciative of our work,” said a source at the Royal Marines training centre in Lympstone in Britain.
“He supports the RNLI (Royal Navy Lifeboat Institution) and is very interested in the Royal Marine Commandos too. We are trying to get him down here to do one of the commando tests so he can get his honorary Green Beret. It’s just about trying to find the time. He’s so busy,” added the source.
The new Bond movie “Quantum of Solace” will be released later this year.
