Prince Charles Offered Role in New “Bond” Movie
The Royal family member is "considering" appearing alongside Daniel Craig in "Bond 25"
Prince Charles is “considering” an offer to appear alongside Daniel Craig in Bond 25, according to reports.
The idea came about after Britain’s heir to the throne visited the set of the forthcoming movie from director Cary Joji Fukunaga (True Detective).
Another member of the British royal family, the Queen, previously appeared with Craig‘s 007 in a short clip which was filmed for the opening of the Olympic Games in London in 2012.
“They loved the buzz around the Queen’s appearance alongside Daniel Craig and think Charles could top even that,” a source told The Sun on Sunday. “He is the epitome of everything British, perfect for a cameo role and Bond fans worldwide would absolutely love it.”
Should the 70-year-old turn down the role, producers will reportedly target his sons, Princes Harry and William, next.
William and Harry did film cameos as Stormtroopers in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, but they did not make the cut in final edits because filmmakers thought they looked too tall.
Set to hit theaters in 2020, the new film will feature black British actress Lashana Lynch taking over the iconic 007 codename.
