Ana De Armas Gives Her Thoughts On Whether James Bond Should Be Female

Ana De Armas was recently on the red carpet at the London film premiere of Bullet Train

Daniel Craig is officially done as James Bond, and that means that at some point the world will need a new James Bond at the movies. In recent years there has been an increased call to diversify the character, by potentially casting a person of color as the next Bond, or possibly a woman. Many have supported that idea, but No Time to Die’s Ana de Armas does not.

Ana de Armas was asked about the call from some corners to cast a woman as the next James Bond. The No TIme to Die actress responded by echoing the same response that others have given on the topic, that taking over roles started by men is not necessarily the best way to achieve the goal of advancing female leads in Hollywood. De Armas explained…

There’s no need for a female Bond. There shouldn’t be any need to steal someone else’s character, you know, to take over. This is a novel, and it leads into this James Bond world and this fantasy of that universe where he’s at.
