James Bond is one of the most popular Hollywood secret agents, perhaps the most famous in the world. Soon, a new actor is to be chosen for the future movies and producers are likely to feature a woman or a black 007. That’s what we call, a change!

Currently, actor Daniel Craig portrays the famous role in the James Bond series, which is one of the highest grossing media franchises. Even though we love Daniel Craig, he will soon be replaced by another actor.

According to DailyMail, she said, “These films tend to reflect the times so we always try to push the envelope a little bit. Anything is possible.”

She added, “Right now it’s Daniel Craig, and I’m very happy with Daniel Craig, but who knows what the future will bring?”

One of the very obvious choices as a replacement for Daniel Craig is the A-list actor of ‘War and Peace’, James Norton. However, James Norton dismissed the rumors and said that he had not been approached to play the role as of yet.

The James Bond’ series is based on a fictional character created in the novels of Ian Fleming. Albert R. Broccoli and Harry Saltzman purchased the filming rights to his novels in 1961.

The popular character has been played by seven actors so far. The list includes Sean Connery, David Niven, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan, and Daniel Craig.

“The role more recently has gone to actresses deemed to be rising stars, and Meghan certainly was seen as that before her relationship with Harry became public. The brief was to find a glamorous rising star, specifically someone American or Canadian.” The source further added.

Meghan’s engagement with Prince Harry seemingly put a definite end to her acting career, so she immediately rejected to be part of the list of possible protagonists.
