Costner’s message to British troops

Hollywood actor Kevin Costner has recorded a special heartfelt message to the British Armed Forces.

The American star met British Forces Broadcasting Service (BFBS) reporter Natasha Reneaux during the filming of his latest movie, Criminal, at Blackbush Airport, in Hampshire. He took time out from filming to carefully pen his own personal message to British troops.

BFBS reporter Natasha said: “During the recording I could hear and see how sincere and heartfelt he was that it brought tears to my eyes. He meant every word and knew exactly what he wanted it to sound like. He also chose the music you can hear under his message. He was so grateful for being given the opportunity to address the British Forces…”
