While giving Sir Alex Younger a cameo role in the film as an extra was reportedly considered, it was “ultimately declined."
Sir Alex Younger, former chief of the UK's M16 secret intelligence service, paid a clandestine visit to set of the latest James Bond movie "No Time to Die" – and donated a prop, The Telegraph reports.
According to the newspaper, Younger was invited to Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire before he left MI6 in September last year, where he was given a tour of the sets used in the film. The ex-spy chief was apparently keen to see the office of M, the fictional head of the intelligence service in the Bond franchise.
Younger reportedly donated his green ink pen to the set as a memento to "add authenticity to the movie."
