The ‘Silent Witness’ star has said she’d love to follow in the footsteps of stars inclduing Ursula Andress, Halle Berry and Rosamund Pike, by playing a “Bond girl” in the latest instalment of the action franchise.
Revealing who she’d want to star opposite, Emilia adds: “There are several strong contenders going for Bond but I would like to see Idris take over from Daniel Craig. He would be a cool Bond.”
Despite Daniel Craig’s rather disparaging remarks about the character of 007, reports recently suggested he might actually be returning to the role in the next ‘James Bond’ film.
These come following claims that stars including Tom Hiddleston, Aidan Turner and David Oyelowo are being considered for the iconic secret agent role (and that’s without mentioning the persistent rumours about Idris, which still aren’t going anywhere).
Daniel said last month: “As far as I’m concerned, I’ve got the best job in the world. I’ll keep doing it as long as I still get a kick out of it.
“If I were to stop doing it, I would miss it terribly.”
The most recent addition to the ‘James Bond’ series, ‘Spectre’, received critical acclaim upon its release in 2015.
