‘James Bond’ actor Danial Craig made honorary commander in Royal Navy

Famed British actor Daniel Craig has been made an honorary Commander in the Royal Navy – matching the on-screen rank of James Bond, according to a statement.

The actor has received the honorary title ahead of the premiere of his fifth outing as James Bond in No Time to Die. The statement published on the official 007 page said, Commander Craig’s appointment as an honorary officer reflects his personal support for UK Armed Forces and links it with the legacy created through the guise of the fictional British secret agent.

Honorary officers in the Royal Navy bring a breadth of experience and contribute in their own distinct way to strengthen the navy’s ties with the communities it serves.

"Commander Craig is keen to support personnel within the Royal Navy, with a particular interest in service families," the statement said.

The James Bond actor said, “I am truly privileged and honoured to be appointed the rank of Honorary Commander in the senior service.”

The announcement comes ahead of the premiere of the newest Bond installment No Time to Die, which marks Craig's last outing as the famous spy.

Filmmakers worked closely with the Royal Navy and Ministry of Defence in the production of the latest film in the franchise. No Time to Die has its world premiere in London on September 28th. It will be released in the U.K. on September 30 and in the U.S. on October 8.
