James Bond played by a woman? For Daniel Craig, it’s no and no!

Who after Daniel Craig? The question, which has been agitating fans of the James Bond saga for months, if not years, should soon be answered. Right out of To die can wait October 6 on French screens?

But what does the current incumbent think? “The answer is simple“, says Daniel Craig in a new interview with Radio Times. “There simply should be better roles for women and actors of color. Why should a woman play James Bond when one should find roles as good as James Bond, but for women?“.

Still, the producers of the saga may have opened Pandora’s box themselves by recruiting the black actress Lashana Lynch in To die can wait. In fact, she plays Nomi, an MI6 agent who inherits the number 007 after the retirement of James Bond. Will she keep it in the future? Who knows, will she give it up to a newcomer in the course of the adventure? Answer in a few days…
