Daniel Crag – our 007 star – will pass the Walther PPK to African British actress Lashana Lynch in the iconic role.
According to a report from UK tabloid the Daily Mail, the 007 producers are going for a radical twofer: casting a 31-year-old black female newcomer as Bond’s heir apparent.
This news could divide the Bond fans who are quite protective about this iconic character, spanning over a six decade.
Craig has been quite vocal about his plans to leave the character behind. He said, “I’m over it at the moment.” “We’re done. All I want to do is move on.” “I just want to go out on a high note and I can’t wait,” the star told Stephen Colbert.
