— James Conrad (Kong: Skull Island)

Captain James Conrad is a character in the 2017 Legendary Pictures film, Kong: Skull Island.

Character Description

A British SAS officer sent to Vietnam to teach jungle warfare and survival techniques to American troops, as the war comes to an end, Conrad becomes something of a lost and disillusioned soul. Recruited as a tracker by Bill Randa, Conrad’s raw courage, survival skills and understanding of nature could represent the expedition’s best shot at making it off the island alive.[1]

To be added.


Godzilla: Aftershock

After the events of Kong: Skull Island, Conrad joined Monarch.[2] In 2014, he accompanied Emma Russell, Ishiro Serizawa, and Vivienne Graham in examining the damage done to a military base, after an "earthquake" caused a series of aftershocks to travel all the way up to Guam. James explained to Emma that experts thought the cause of the aftershocks was just tectonic activity. They were, however, incorrect as the aftershocks were caused by MUTO Prime.

  • James Conrad is likely named after Joseph Conrad, author of the novella Heart of Darkness, upon which the Vietnam War film Apocalypse Now is based.
  • Though Britain was not officially involved in the Vietnam War, actor Tom Hiddleston discovered during his research for the role that British Special Forces trained American and South Vietnamese soldiers in jungle warfare.[4]
