Game Of Thrones’ Emilia Clarke Puts Name Forward To Be First Female James Bond

Emila Clark has arguably become one of the most sought out actors following her performance as Daenerys Targaryen in Games of Thrones.

The 33-year-old stole the nationals (and worlds) heart’s as the Mother of Dragons during all eight seasons of the HBO drama.

And it appears Emilia’s career could take even bigger turns as she has put her name forward to be the first-ever female James Bond.

The A-lister confessed she would love to play 007 when Daniel Craig retires from the role after 13 years as the British spy.

Speaking to Empire, Emilia delighted fans after she was asked if she’d be keen to take on the role of a female James Bond.

“Yeah! Of course,” she screamed, “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.”

But fans won’t be seeing Emilia as 007 anytime soon as the next film., No Time To Die, starring Craig is set for an April 2020 release.

There have also been rumours that British actress Lashana Lynch could be set to put her spy boots on to take over from Craig

Lashana would not only be the first-ever female to take on the role but also the first-ever black person to star as James Bond.

However, 007 are torn on whether the next Bond should be a woman, with it causing a divide in the fanbase.

Ab Fab’s Joanna Lumley recently spoke out, declaring it should not be given to a woman.

She told Metro: “[Author Ian Fleming] took very special pains to describe James Bond, who was a man, and this was written in the early 50s, who was a British man of a certain height and build and a rather cruel face, a lean build.

“It seems odd to me that you’d make that a woman.”

She added: “By all means write another character who works for MI6, write a new one, but don’t tag on to this lazy business of pretending it’s James Bond.

“Make a different one. It would have to be 008 or somebody else and make it a woman if you have to.

“Remember James Bond is a character written by a real writer. You wouldn’t make Mr Pickwick into a 23-year-old girl.”
