Gil­lian up for a bit of Bond-age

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

X-FILES sex­pot Gil­lian An­der­son could be about to be­come the first ever FE­MALE James Bond.

The racy red­head is in the frame to fol­low Daniel Craig as the next 007 af­ter fans sug­gested on Twit­ter that she could be the first woman to play the leg­endary spy.

Gil­lian added fuel to the fire by retweet­ing a fan poster of her as the iconic spy along­side the cap­tion: “It’s Bond, Jane Bond.”

But the 47-year-old ac­tress faces some stiff com­pe­ti­tion to take over as the MI6 se­cret agent.

The Night Man­ager star Tom Hid­dle­ston is the cur­rent favourite, while Luther ac­tor Idris Elba has been tipped to be­come the first black Bond.

Damian Lewis, best known for Home­land, is also ru­moured to have made the short­list.

It was re­cently re­ported Craig had turned down a whop­ping £68mil­lion to ap­pear in two more films.
