Later this month No Time To Die hits cinemas, concluding the story of Daniel Craig‘sJames Bond. After the actor steps down a new face will be claiming the role, prompting much speculation about whether the next star ought to be a person of colour or a woman.
In a new interview with Radio Times, Craig has spoken out about why making Bond a woman is not the best route for the franchise.
Instead, the actor posited there “should simply be better parts for women and actors of colour”.
He went on to add: “Why should a woman play James Bond when there should be a part just as good as James Bond, but for a woman?”
