James Bond star hosts ‘Skyfall’ screening for British troops in Afghanistan

Bond star Daniel Craig paid a surprise visit to British troops at Camp Bastion base in Helmand, Afghanistan for screening of his latest Bond film, “Skyfall”.

More than 800 British soldiers welcomed the Bond actor as he gave a speech and talked about the film before its screening.

Craig then went on to tour the camp, met hospital patients at Bastion Role 3 Hospital, which specialises in treating trauma patients, and then engaged in friendly conversations with the soldiers.

According to the Ministry of Defence, the actor also got a chance to fire a couple of machine guns used by the British troops in Afghanistan and saw what kinds of trainings the soldiers need to undergo before being deployed to forward operating bases.

“It was really good morale for everyone – it’s a decent thing for him to take time to come out and visit everyone here,” said Private Scott Craggs, who works as a medical technician in the camp.

Another soldier, Rob Ingham said, “We get quite a lot of visitors here, but having James Bond was special.”

“Skyfall”, the 23rd official James Bond movie in the 50-year-old franchise, is now the highest-grossing instalment in the series with a global box office take of $669 million, surpassing the $599 million taken in by “Casino Royale” in 2006.

Craig has starred in the last three Bond movies.
