DANIEL CRAIG FROWNED AT THE IDEA OF A FEMALE JAMES BOND
It’s imperative to understand that not every role needs to be for every group. We don’t need a Black Bond, a Queer Bond or Jane Bond. There is enough creativity in the world to create a different story/franchise.
The James Bond start Daniel Craig would rather see the sky fall than watch James Bond be played by a woman.
The former on-screen James Bond told Radio Times that he thinks there are “better” parts for women to play than James Bond.
“Why should a woman play James Bond when there should be a part just as good as James Bond, but for a woman?” Craig, 53, said on a radio interview
Craig made the claim a week before the release of the subsequent Bond film “No Time To Die,” which will premiere in theaters on Oct. 8.
His comments echo those of the franchise’s producer Barbara Broccoli, 61, who told Variety in 2020 that “James Bond can be of any color, but he is male.”
She added that she would rather write new characters specifically for women, rather than make the iconic lead role a woman.
