Actress Lily Cole said she would like to see female version of popular spy James Bond.
The 28-year-old star revealed that she would rather play 007 than a Bond girl as she is not a fan of how ‘stereotypical’ the character is, reported FemaleFirst.
Asked if she would like to play a Bond girl, Cole said, “I would rather be Bond. I think the Bond girl character would be a fun one to cross off your bucket list.
“But they are not the most interesting characters historically, whereas, Bond could be a bit more fun. I also don’t like male and female stereotype. I think it is about time we had a female Bond put it that way,” she said.
Cole said she would love to see the Oscar-winning actress Cate Blanchett as the MI5 secret agent.
“There are so many strong female actresses. Cate Blanchett comes to mind again. I think she would be pretty good,” she said.
