James Bond Travels to Afghanistan for Some 'Skyfall' Action

November 19, 2012 at 4:42 PM | by | ()

Daniel Craig took on a real life secret mission yesterday when he surprised 800 British soldiers, sailors, and airmen at Camp Bastion in Afghanistan.

The 007 actor joined the servicemen for a special screening of Skyfall, before touring the camp and trying out some high tech gadgets. In true James Bond form, Craig didn't bat an eye at taking the wheel of a Foxhound vehicle and firing off a machine gun during his visit.

He also met with the medical staff and patients at the camp's Bastion Role 3 Hospital. Private Scott Craggs, a combat medical technician serving with 3 Medical Regiment, said, "It was really good morale for everyone - it's a decent thing for him to take time to come out and visit everyone here."

The soldiers also agreed seeing the film with Craig there made it that much better. RAF Sergeant Dave Hammond told reporters, "It was great to be able to see the film here - and to have James Bond himself to introduce it was brilliant!"
