Time for a female James Bond, says Lily Cole
Actor Lily Cole thinks it’s time a female James Bond film comes out, and said she would love to see Cate Blanchett take on the spy’s role.
If given a chance, the 28-year-old, who is also a model and entrepreneur, would herself much rather play 007 than a Bond girl.
She is not a fan of how “stereotypical” and uninteresting the character - who was most recently played by French actor Lea Seydoux in 2015 film Spectre, is, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
Asked if she’d like to play a Bond girl, Cole told BANG Showbiz, “I would rather be Bond. I think the Bond girl character would be a fun one to cross off your bucket list. But they are not the most interesting characters historically, whereas, Bond could be a bit more fun. I also don’t like male and female stereotype. I think it is about time we had a female Bondput it that way.”
Which female star does she think would fit the female James Bond role perfectly? She said,“There are so many strong female actors. Cate Blanchett comes to mind again. I think she would be pretty good.”
Speaking about how she balances her acting and business with motherhood, she BANG Showbiz,“I’ve done very little since having my daughter. I’m slowly getting back into it. In terms of taking three months off to do a film I haven’t done that yet.”
