Also, when preparing the character he had 007 in mind. “He’s a great character. He is a dark character. SAS: The rise of the Black Swan that I did was very much my homage to the world of James Bond. We work very closely with Andy McNab, who is a highly decorated British Special Forces operator. It’s all based on him, the character, so in a way it’s a more interesting role than Bond. That was an amazing experience to study him and learn about his experiences. So, I feel like maybe I’ve tasted that world.” concluded Sam Heughan.
