Former Bond girl Britt Ekland has said that a female James Bond is “not going to happen.”
“That’s not going to happen, we might as well not talk about it,” she said while appearing on Good Morning Britain. “I don’t have any information. I know Barbara [Broccoli, the film franchise’s producer] and if I had any influence, I would whisper and say, ‘No, not a female Bond!’”
Ekland starred in 1974 Bond movie The Man with the Golden Gun, playing personal secretary Mary Goodnight opposite Roger Moore's 007. It was Moore’s second appearance as the British secret serviceman, in which he tussled with Christopher Lee's feted assassin Francisco Scaramanga.
The Swedish actress also called the notion of no longer referring to women in James Bond films as Bond girls “foolish.”
“Bond girls is a very nice title and it’s what people want. It doesn’t have the same ring, 'Bond woman,’” she said, adding that her dog is “gender-fluid.”
