Following the historic victory of Barack Obama in the US Presidential elections, Daniel Craig says the world should be prepared to see a ‘coloured 007’.
The 40-year-old, who was himself the target of much criticism for being the first ‘blonde Bond’, humoured the idea at a press conference before the Italian premier of his latest Bond film, ‘Quantum of Solace’.
“After Barack Obama”s victory I think we might have reached the moment for a coloured 007,” the ‘Telegraph’ quoted him as telling the Agi news agency.
“I think the role could easily be played by a black actor, because the character created by Ian Fleming in the Fifties has undergone a great deal of evolution and continues to be updated.”
