Emilia Clarke would love to play Bond

Clarke, 33, says that she will be really happy if the producers plan a gender switch

London: 'Game of Thrones' star Emilia Clarke says that she would absolutely love to play the iconic fictional spy James Bond if the producers plan a gender switch.

In an extensive interview with Empire magazine, the much-loved female actor of Hollywood was asked if she would like to essay the role of the British spy, to which excitedly replied, "Yeah! Of course! Hell to the yeah."

"James Bond is one of those franchises where it's never not cool. You could literally make the naffest James Bond in the world and it would still be cool," Clarke added.

The actor, 33, will next be seen in festive film Last Christmas and will be sharing the screen with the Crazy Rich Asians star Henry Golding, who essayed the role of Nick Young in the film. Golding rooted for Idris Elba to get the job, after Craig's exit post the release of No Time to Die.

"I think there's a tremendous amount of space for a new reinvention of Bond. I think it's healthy to have those types of conversations, he said.

"I'm rooting for Idris. I want to see him," he further added.
