Daniel Craig’s new title of an ‘Honorary Commander’ means he could be called to serve his country in the Royal Navy if there’s another war.
The James Bond actor said he was ‘honoured’ after being presented with it by First Sea Lord Admiral, Sir Tony Radakin, the head of the Royal Navy, who worked on the new No Time To Die movie.
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 added that his late father served in the navy, so the ‘best thing’ about the title is that it made his ‘mum happy’.
The actor, who previously said he doesn’t think the next Bond spy should be female, recently attended the premiere for his final 007 film in London.
The star-studded event was also attended by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall.
The movie was released 18 months later than planned because of delays caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

Craig told Sky News he is ‘relieved’ that things are getting back to normal in the film industry.
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.”
There has been lots of speculation about who will replace the actor in the next title after he announced that No Time To Die would be his last reprisal of the iconic role.
A number of actors have been linked to it, including Bridgerton’s Regé-Jean Page and The Avengers star Tom Hiddleston.
