Rumor has it that Lashana Lynch could possibly be the following 007. Or extra particularly, the following James Bond.
But former Bond actor Daniel Craig thinks the title “James Bond” needs to be performed by a person. Sort of like Batman. Or Superman. Or Spiderman.
Granted, James Bond isn’t a comic book ebook superhero. But he’s a miracle employee of types in relation to combating crime. And he has at all times been performed by a person.
Craig, 53, thinks it ought to keep that manner.
“Why should a woman play James Bond when there should be a part just as good as James Bond, but for a woman?” Craig instructed Radio Times.
Craig was being diplomatic, smart when he added that “there should simply be better parts for women and actors of color.”
Nonetheless, there’s discuss that Lynch might take over the Bond function.
“In ‘No Time To Die,’ the west London actress, 33, will play an M16 agent named Nomi, according to the Guardian, with rumors speculating that she will inherit the 007 title from Bond in the film, making her the first woman to play the well-known agent character,” the New York Post reported.
Lynch is little doubt a gifted, rising actor.
Franchise producer Barbara Broccoli instructed appeared to agree with Craig.
“James Bond can be of any color,” Broccoli instructed Variety, “but he is male.”
Like Craig, Broccoli is also strongly in favor of ladies taking part in roles much like Bond, however made for girls.
“I believe we should be creating new characters for women – strong female characters,” she mentioned. “I’m not particularly interested in taking a male character and having a woman play it. I think women are far more interesting than that.”
