Jude Law apes Gibraltar submarine captain for new film Black Sea
ACTOR Jude Law has prepared for his next Hollywood role by joining the crew of an operational Royal Navy nuclear submarine on patrol.
Jude Law on board submarine HMS Talent in Gribraltar for filming
The 40-year-old actor spent several days on HMS Talent learning the life of a submariner, and he remained on board when the vessel left Gibraltar to take part in war games in the Mediterranean.
However, London-based Law, whose film credits include The Talented Mr Ripley and Sherlock Holmes, was not allowed to see the most sensitive operational areas of the hi-tech submarine.
The actor is due to star in the film Black Sea as a British submarine captain who embarks on a hunt for a stolen submarine with gold on board.
He was very down-to-earth, he went around every department and worked out with the Captain
Leading Seaman Anthony Morgan
Crewmen said he immersed himself in the job and made sure he ate with all the officers and sailors. Leading Seaman Anthony Morgan said: “He was very down-to-earth, he went around every department and worked out with the Captain.”
When Law left he was given a “dolphin” badge, which is presented to newly-qualified submariners.
