Lashana Lynch to Become First Female 007 James Bond

The Daily Mail reports the change, which features black British actress Lashana Lynch as the new 007 (but not the new Bond; she plays a new character), came about "thanks to the intervention of feminist TV writer Phoebe Waller-Bridge".

Lynch, a West London native, rose to stardom because the fighter pilot Maria Rambeau in Captain Marvel. That credit will still belong to Daniel Craig, at least for now.

According to the Daily Mail, "James Bond 25" will introduce the new secret agent in a "pivotal scene". Lynch, will be given Bond's license to kill in the 25th movie in the franchise.

Daniel Craig announced a year ago that he would not be continuing his reign as James Bond.

Tellingly, Lynch has not been unveiled as the next Bond, but the next 007.

As it stands, Lynch is absolutely signed onto the project. On television, she also has appeared in Silent Witness, Death in Paradise, and was regular cast member on the short-lived BBC comedy Crims in 2015. The production house, however, has remained tight-lipped about exactly what role she will be playing. She portrays Arjana Pike on the Sky One drama series Bullet Proof (2018- ) and Agent 355 in Y, set to premiere on FX in (2020). Lynch will be working alongside several other rising starlets.

There has been much speculation to who the next "James Bond" will be.

Daniel Craig's last appearance as James Bond will reportedly happen in the still-untitled 25th Bond film (or Bond 25, as it's known), and there's no word yet on who the next actor to play the iconic MI6 agent will be.

Eventually, the Rockies would suffer through a 17-9 marathon loss to the Reds, a game that ended more than seven hours after it. He threw five innings, allowing four runs on six hits with four walks and four strikeouts in a game that the Reds won 6-5.

Craig stepped into the role in 2006 after Pierce Brosnan ended his affiliation with the franchise in 2002.

But how will Bond react to the reveal? Fans have been making quiet suggestions about who should step into the role.

Idris Elba was still a great idea as the next Bond.

"You just get disheartened when you get people from a generational point of view going, 'It can't be.' And it really turns out to be the color of my skin", said Elba, 46.

It doesn't mean there aren't still potential problems for any future Bond film.

Twitter is split on the new casting.

According to the Mail's source, Lynch's character will act as both Bond's foil and a romantic interest - but his seduction tactics will have little effect on the "brilliant, young black woman who basically rolls her eyes at him".
