BOND-AGE ROLE FOR 50 SHADES STAR?

WEST AC­TOR FOR 007?:

Western Daily Press (Saturday) - - Front Page -

COTSWOLDS-BASED ac­tor Jamie Dor­nan said it is “cool” to be one of the ac­tors touted as the next James Bond.

The star, who lives near Stroud, is one of the many big names con­nected with the revered role for when Daniel Craig steps down.

Dor­nan, as well as star­ring in the Fifty Shades fran­chise as Chris­tian Grey, won plau­dits for his por­trayal of a se­rial killer in the BBC’s psy­cho­log­i­cal thriller The Fall.

He said he “doesn’t think” about play­ing Bond, adding: “You can­not re­ally plan any­thing in this in­dus- try. I never have goals in it, re­ally, I never have parts that I would want to chase or any­thing, just see what hap­pens.

“But it’s cool to be in those con­ver­sa­tions.”

Dor­nan is star­ring along­side Game Of Thrones’ Peter Din­klage in My Din­ner With Herve, which ex­am­ines the life of Bond vil­lain Herve Vil­lechaize.

Other names in the hat for tak­ing over from Craig as Bond in­clude Idris Elba, Tom Hid­dle­ston and Body­guard and Game of Thrones star Richard Mad­den.
