Celebrity of The X-Files and The Fall puts herself into the running – with Twitter poster.
Gillian Anderson has veiled that she would accept the role as the first female Bond, tweeting out a teased-up poster of her as famous agent/spy 007.
The star of The Fall and The X-Files expressed her wish to take over from Daniel Craig as the world’s most famous secret agent, tweeting, alongside the poster: “It’s Bond, Jane Bond.”
She added: “(And sorry, don’t know who made the poster but I love it!)”, with the hashtag #NextBond.
It was reported that Craig refused to take £60m for a film to make two more films with the franchise. However, reports later said he was yet to make a decision on his future as Bond.
In spite of that, it is widely believed Craig wants to go on after four outings as 007.
Hiddleston, who acted as a spy Jonathan Pine in the Night Manager, has played down rumor that he would take on the role, recently telling the BBC’s Graham Norton Show: “The position isn’t vacant as far as I’m aware. No one has talked to me about it.
“I think the rumors have come about because in the Night Manager I play a spy and people have made the link.”
Meanwhile Elba, who starred in Luther, has spoken of being tired of the constant gossip. “I’m probably the most famous Bond actor in the world, and I’ve not even played the role,” he said in an interview with the Daily Telegraph in 2015. “Enough is enough. I can’t talk about it anymore.”
