Theresa May Calls For A Female James Bond

The Prime Minister would like to see more women take on leading roles in film


The Prime Minister has backed calls for the next James Bond to be played by a woman.

According to The Guardian, Theresa May told reporters on board her RAF Voyager plane en route to Cyprus that she is looking forward to watching Doctor Who on Christmas Day.

She then went on to praise the BBC's decision to cast Jodie Whittaker as the first female lead.

'I think it's a great move forward for girl power that there is going to be a female Doctor Who,' she said.

Daniel Craig has confirmed that he will play James Bond in the next film

The Prime Minister then expressed her desire to see more women take on major roles in television, as the 61-year-old added: 'And one day there should be a female James Bond.'

But when quizzed on who should take the reigns from Daniel Craig, she remained coy.

'I don't know who is being lined up. I read the other day that James Norton was being talked about as a possible James Bond. I think he did an interview where he said he'd quite like to,' she said.

Although Daniel Craig has confirmed that he will play James Bond in the next 007 film, it is uncertain who will take over the franchise once he retires.

Idris Elba, Tom Hardy and Tom Hiddleston are all tipped as favourites to take on the leading role.
