Emilia Clarke wants to be first female James Bond
London, May 31 (IANS) Amid rumours that actor Tom Hiddleston is in talks to replace Daniel Craig as the next James Bond, “Game of Thrones” star Emilia Clarke has revealed she wants to be the first female to essay the iconic British superspy.
The 29-year-old actress has revealed that one of her biggest professional ambitions is to break new ground by becoming the first woman to star as the iconic secret agent, reports dailystar.co.uk.
“I have a lot of unrealised dreams. I would love to play Jane Bond. My ultimate leading man would be Leonardo DiCaprio. No doubt about it,” Clarke said.
“The X Files” actress Gillian Anderson hit the headlines last week by suggesting she could replace Craig as 007 and be called Jane Bond.
Clarke is currently promoting her first major leading role in director Thea Sharrock’s “Me Before You”, which is an adaption of a romantic novel of the same name written by Jojo Moyes.
Season six of “Game of Thrones” is premiered in India on Star World Premiere HD in India.
