London, Sep 23 (MNN) Hollywood actor Daniel Craig – who has legions of fans across the globe after playing the role of most-famous fictional British spy James Bond — has been made an honorary Commander in the Royal Navy.

And the actor maintained that he was truly privileged and honoured by the move by the Royal Navy. Interestingly, the rank equals that of Bond.

“I am truly privileged and honoured to be appointed to the rank of Honorary Commander in the senior service,” Daily Mail reported him as saying.

Royal Navy chief, First Sea Lord Admiral Sir Tony Radakin, pointed out that his organisation’s job was very similar to what the suave spy was supposed to do – on screen.

“I am delighted to welcome honorary Commander Daniel Craig to the Royal Navy. Our honorary officers act as ambassadors and advocates for the service, sharing their time and expertise to spread the message about what our global, modern, and ready Royal Navy is doing around the world.”

The Navy chief has worked with 53-year-old Daniel Craig and the crew on latest Bond movie ‘No Time To Die’.

Radakin added: “I look forward to him getting to see more of our sailors and marines over the coming months and years.”

On his part, Craig is keen to support personnel within the Royal Navy, with a particular interest in service families.

And Craig also came across real-life Bond in the Royal Navy. Lieutenant Commander Frances Bond said: “I really enjoyed speaking to Craig and the rest of the cast. It was fascinating to hear their perspectives on working with the armed forces and learning a bit about the world of Hollywood.”

Navy warship HMS Dragon features in the movie, with Type 45 destroyer’s red dragon emblem on the hull seen cutting through the waves in the latest trailer.
