Daisy May Cooper recently responded to the rumours that she could be set to play M in the next James Bond film.
Speaking to NME, the This Country star explained how the rumour first came about. She went on to admit that she’d happily take on the role of 007’s boss.
“I think it was on the radio… they were discussing who they want to be the next M and then somebody mentioned my name and from then it just went like fucking wildfires. I had the Daily Mail knocking at my parents’ door at night.”
It was suggested to her that she’d be great as a younger, spunkier M after Judi Dench — or more recently Ralph Fiennes — she laughingly replied:
“Yeah, give me a f***ing part. Move over, Dench!”
Following the end of Daniel Craig’s tenure as 007, rumours about his successor have been rife. Aaron Taylor-Johnson has emerged as one of the favourites to take over the role, alongside Snowfall‘s Damson Idris, Bridgerton star Regé-Jean Page, Happy Valley star James Norton and Henry Cavill.
Meanwhile, when Esquire asked about the possibility of him taking up the role, the Kraven The Hunter star replied:
“As I’ve already told you, I have to go by the beat of my own drum. It’s my own path, what feels intuitive to me.
“I’ve never made a decision based on other people’s perspectives, or their judgements, or their expectations. You lose your fucking mind if you do that. Your sense of worth and soul is gone. You need to understand what is integral to you and what feels right, and you’ve got to stay on track with what’s present in front of you. Kraven is what’s in front of me.”
