Hermione Fleming- great niece of Bond creator Ian Fleming thinks that Idris Elba would make a fantastic replacement for Daniel Craig as the Bond Franchise scouts for potential actors to play the fictional role of James Bond in the 007 films.
Daniel who is set to star in the 25th bond film which is as yet to be named, will take up the role as the sexy Secret Service agent for the last time.
Hermione also cited Richard Madden and Cillian Murphy as suitable candidates for the role.
She told a local UK magazine that ‘Idris Elba would make an awesome, sexy, bad-ass Bond. So would Richard Madden from the Bodyguard and Cillian Murphy from Peaky Blinders.
The 29-year-old fashion PR also added that she wasn’t sure that a female figure would befit the legendary role.
She said: ‘I’m not convinced a female Bond would work. My great-uncle created Bond as a man. Yet bringing into the mix a similar character to the ruthless assassin, Villanelle in Killing Eve, would be fun.’
Hermione, who also suffers from temporal lobe epilepsy spoke out on how having the condition has affected her ability to recall recent events and even forgetting precious memories she has shared with her loved ones.
She said: ‘It’s sad that I’ll forget most of what’s happened to me. If I don’t see a friend or relative for six months, I probably won’t recognize them. ‘And when I look at photos from the past, I don’t recall being there; it feels as if my image has been superimposed.
‘One of the most heartbreaking things for me is that I won’t remember happy times with people I love. So when I’m with mum and dad, say, I take tonnes of pictures to capture those precious moments.’ She added: ‘I appreciate every second. Every day I wake up determined to live it to the full.’
Daniel Craig took on the role of James Bond after succeeding Pierce Brosnan and has so far starred in the 007 sequels, Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace, Skyfall and Spectre.
The next Bond film is set to be released in 2020 and will be directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga who wrote the script along with Scott Z. Burns and Phoebe Waller-Bridge.
