The Faroe Islands have a tombstone to commemorate the last known location of James Bond. The spy, played by Daniel Craig, was last seen on the poisonous island of Safin, in disputed waters between Russia and Japan, and never returned from his mission in No Time to Die.
As a way to commemorate the end of the Bond era played by Craig, the Faroese and the Tourist Board installed a tombstone in Kalsoy to commemorate the history depicted in the film. Those in charge of tourist activity in the area even recorded a video promoting the memorial, in addition to offering an official tour of the archipelago.
In the registry it is possible to observe how the tombstone was raised and the importance of the fictional character for the region is explained. “James Bond was here, but he never came home…now the islanders have decided to commemorate him. Bond will forever be remembered at the place where he was last seen in the Faroe Islands,” the video states.
The guided tour offers tourists a tour of the sites that served as the setting for director Cary Joji Fukunaga’s film, including the house that the film crew used as a base camp.
Meanwhile, the tombstone is dated between 1962 and 2021, the years in which the first and most recent films in the popular saga were released. Of course, the franchise does not end with this tape; in fact, it should return with installment 26, only it will not have Daniel Craig in the cast.
“It’s the only way I could see for myself to end it all and make that my mandate, someone else could come in and take over,” the actor said in an interview with Variety.
