Léa Seydoux, who played Dr Madeleine Swann in Spectre and No Time, the two most recent films, hinted that the mother of James Bond’s daughter could be back in the next movie in the 007 series.
She told Deadline:
”After all I’m not dead. It was James who died, not Madeleine. So, who knows? Maybe I’ll be back.”
“This is like fake news, right? But if we’re serious for a moment, Madeleine drives away with her daughter right at the end because James has saved them. There’ll be a new Bond because Daniel’s Bond died but who’s to say that Madeleine won’t be back?”
These statements by her will give hope to fans who want to see the character back in the films. But we don’t know for sure yet.
It can only be certain when Barbara Broccoli, Michael G. Wilson and their casting director decide on bringing the character back and if an official announcement is made regarding the cast of the film.
Seydoux talked about this, saying that she only mischievously posed the question about her character returning.
“I haven’t spoken to Barbara about whether or not Madeleine would make an appearance in a future Bond film, a lot has to happen before that stage is reached. This is just idle speculation as we talk on the top of a mountain.”
The actress was at the world premiere screening of the film Empire of Light at the Telluride Film Festival. The film is written and directed by Sam Mendes, who cast Seydoux in Spectre, as Deadline pointed out. It is surely an interesting coincidence.
