— James Conrad (Kong: Skull Island TV spot)

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]

  • 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.[2]
