Daniel Craig Opposes Casting a Woman as James Bond

“No Time to Die” star Daniel Craig, who’s played spymaster James Bond in the last five Bond films, said he is not a fan of the idea of casting a woman to play the secret agent, a character conceived as a British man in the 1950s by author Ian Fleming.

Report: Actress Lashana Lynch Is the New 007

Those familiar with the James Bond franchise know that “007” is not a person but a title, with the double “0” denoting a license to kill. So it makes sense that if Bond retires the title of “007” would go to another agent.
