Halle played NSA agent Giacinta ‘Jinx’ Johnson alongside 007 Pierce Brosnan in the 2002 Bond movie ‘Die Another Day’. Ian Fleming created James Bond in 1953 since then the agent with the licence to kill has been portrated by seven actors in 26 films but never by a female.
Recently Cara Delevigne said she would only be interested in being in a Bond film if she could play the lead character.
The model said: “Everyone’s saying I’m meant to be a Bond girl but I’m like, ‘no — I’m working on the James Bond aspect first.’ I wouldn’t mind being a Bond girl but I’m going for James. It’s time for a female Doctor Who,” Delevingne told BBC, “and it’s time for a female James Bond.”
Daniel Craig, who has played Bond since 2007’s Casino Royale , is returning for one more film as James Bond in 2019. The BBC announced last month that they had cast Jodie Whittaker as the first ever female Dr Who.
