Daniel Craig Wants Emilia Clarke to Play Bond After Him
Imagine wanting to play a character and the one person that’s best at it wants you to play that character too. We know the situation is a bit too specified but this is the situation right now. The star of the hit show, Game of Thrones, Emilia Clarke wants to play the role of the iconic James Bond. And guess who just wants her to play their role?!!! ITS DANIEL CRAIG. Yes, James Bond himself!
What Did Daniel Craig Say?
Okay, before we get into how and why this entire situation came out to be. Let’s just first wait for a minute and actually think about how cool it would be if we actually got a female James Bond. It’s high time we get a mainstream female spy!
Now coming back to the real issue here. Emilia Clarke in an interview expressed her wish to play a spy:
Yeah! Of course! Hell to the yeah! James Bond is one of those franchises where it’s never not cool.
She further added:
“You could literally make the naffest James Bond in the world and it would still be cool.”
Though we agree that it’d be way too cool if she plays James Bond but we’re also sure she won’t be the naffest James Bond! She’d have quite a lot of style.
Also, you know who else is cool with Emilia Clarke taking on the James Bond mantle? James Bond himself. Daniel Craig, the 51-year-old actor who is currently playing the role will appear as James Bond in his last film for the franchise, No Time To Die.
What did he say actually?
When asked about what are his thoughts on Emilia Clarke playing his role. He very coolly answered:
She can have it.
And have it she will. Hopefully. Fingers crossed.
