Rosamund Pike says a James Bond film led by an actress isn’t needed



"I’d just say write a new story [...] take one of the Bond Girls and give her her own story. I think the character of James Bond is a man. He is really. To have such a character in a completely independent series, why should a woman get sort of sloppy seconds? Why should she have once been a man and now it has to be played by a woman? Why not make a kick-ass female agent in her own right?”

“There’s nothing really about the James Bond character as written by Ian Fleming that resembles a woman. It’s a very masculine creation. So sure, make an unexpected, unapologetic, kick-ass, amazing female agent and yes, I’ll play her.”
