James Bond actor Lashana Lynch has stated that anyone may play James Bond, but she has denied that she is in the running for the role.
The 33-year-old actor will play a new agent in this year’s Bond adventure No Time to Die, in which he will take over the role of 007 after Daniel Craig’s retired superspy retires.
She told The Guardian in an interview that “you don’t want me” as the new Bond, but that when the time comes to name Craig’s successor, she believes the net should be thrown wider than the traditional suspects.
“We are in a period where the industry is not simply delivering audiences what it believes they want,” Lynch added. They’re giving the audience exactly what they want to offer them.
“With Bond, it could be a man or woman. They could be of any race: white, black, Asian, or mixed. They could be young or old,” she said.
“At the end of the day, even if a two-year-old was playing Bond, everyone would flock to the cinema to see what this two-year-old’s gonna do, no?”
Fans have urged for someone other than a white guy to play James Bond, with Idris Elba and Olivia Colman among the options mentioned.
Bond producer Barbara Broccoli, on the other hand, has indicated unequivocally that the role will always be male, although not necessarily white.
She said: “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.”
James Bond is driven out of his idyllic retirement with Madeleine Swann (Léa Seydoux) in No Time to Die when a threat in the form of Rami Malek’s evil villain Safin appears.
Craig’s fifth and final performance since taking on the famed character for Casino Royale in 2006 will be in this film, directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga.
Meanwhile, Lynch has landed another major role as Miss Honey in the upcoming big-screen adaptation of Matilda the Musical.
No Time to Die will be released in UK theaters on September 30th.
