It's Bond, Jane Bond: Gillian Anderson throws hat into the ring to be next 007
Gillian Anderson has hinted that she would accept the role as the first female Bond, tweeting out a mocked-up poster of herself as 007, The Guradian reports.
The star of The Fall and The X-Files expressed her desire to take over from Daniel Craig as the world’s most famous secret agent, tweeting, alongside the poster: “It’s Bond, Jane Bond.”
She added: “(And sorry, don’t know who made poster but I love it!)”, with the hashtag #NextBond.
Speculation has been raging over who will fill Craig’s shoes, with bookies last week suspending betting on Night Manager star Tom Hiddleston after a flurry of interest.
Others in the running to play the spy in the next 007 film include actor and DJ Idris Elba and Homeland star Damian Lewis.
But Anderson’s suggestion that she wants the role sent Twitter into a frenzy.
