My name is Charles. Prince Charles.
According to The Sun, the heir to the throne of Great Britain has received a special leading role in the upcoming James Bond film.
Prince Charles, 70, would not be the first member of his royal family to appear alongside 007 – his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, played in a brief tribute for the opening ceremony of the 2012 London Olympics.
“They loved the bustle around the appearance of the queen next to Daniel Craig and think Charles could even surpass that,” one source told the British newspaper about the scene, where the queen looked like she was parachuting from a helicopter.
“He is the embodiment of everything British, perfect for a cameo role and Bond fans around the world would absolutely love it.”
The possible cameo in “Bond 25” was reportedly raised when the prince recently visited the film set, posing for photos with Bond actor Craig, 51.
“Now he is considering it,” said the source.
If he rejects it, the source believes there would be two obvious substitutions for the show – the sons of Charles, Princess Harry and William.
“If Charles does not go for it, Harry and Wills can then be in sight of the producers,” the source told the newspaper.
If so, they hope for a better result than their previous bid for film starry, where both ended up on the floor of the cutting room after filming cameos as Stormtroopers in 2017 ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’, but if they were too long considered.
The previously untitled “Bond 25” has been hit by problems such as stopping the planned director Danny Boyle, an explosion of the film set and Craig who needs surgery for an ankle injury.
“It’s no secret that the film has suffered some setbacks, but landing a Royal can be exactly what the film needs,” said the film’s source, The Sun, which is expected in cinemas in April.
The prince even joked about the misery of the film when he visited the set, according to The Sun, and asked, “Haven’t you blown things up lately?”
