James Bond ‘could be a man or woman’ of any race or age: Lashana Lynch

James Bond actor Lashana Lynch, who will next be seen in the next James Bond thriller No Time To Die, has refuted rumors that she could take over the franchise as the main character in future episodes.

“Nooo! You don’t want me, do you?” she told in an interview with The Guardian.

The 33-year-old actor stated that the next Bond might be a guy or a woman, young or elderly, and of any race.

“We’ve arrived at a point in history where the entertainment industry isn’t just offering viewers what it believes they want. They’re giving the audience exactly what they want to offer them.

“It may be a guy or a woman in Bond’s case. They could be of any race: white, black, Asian, or mixed. It doesn’t matter if they’re young or old. After all, even if a two-year-old played Bond, everyone would come to the theater to watch what this two-year-old would do, right?” Captain Marvel’s star stated.

In the film, Lashana plays Nomi, an MI6 agent who is rumored to be the next in line to receive Bond’s iconic number 007, which also stars Daniel Craig in his farewell role as the franchise’s leading man.

Her remarks come at a time when Tom Hardy, Idris Elba, and Tom Hiddleston have all been named as possible candidates for the role of the next James Bond.

When asked about her role as Nomi, the actor stated that the producers were only searching for someone who could be a good match for Bond.

“…Who would be able to stand up and be vocal, frank, strong, and capable of handling a weapon, capable of handling herself, and not someone who takes crap from anyone.

“Then, as the story progressed, she evolved into this rather complex, free, open-minded vocal human being who adds a really beautiful twist to MI6,” Lashana continued.

No Time to Die was revealed earlier this week to be the longest film in the franchise’s history, causing some outrage from fans.

The film stars Lea Seydoux, Rami Malek, Ana de Armas, Ben Whishaw, Naomi Harris, Jeffery Wright, Christoph Waltz, and Ralph Fiennes, and is directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga.

On September 30, No Time To Die will be released in UK theaters.
