no time to dieAna de Armas doesn’t like swapping the role of 007.
The star, who played badass CIA agent Paloma in last year’s 25th Bond film, spoke to The sun on the ubiquitous question: who should replace Daniel Craig?
For years names like Idris Elba, James Norton, Richard Madden, Henry Golding, Regé-Jean Page, Michael Fassbender and Henry Cavill have been mooted, but there has also been speculation as to whether the next Bond could be a woman.

Echoing Eva Green’s words, de Armas said: “There’s no need for a Bond woman. It shouldn’t be necessary to steal someone else’s character, you know, to take over.
“What I would like is for female roles in Bond films, even though Bond will continue to be male, to come to life in a different way. To receive a more substantial part and recognition.
“That’s what I think is more interesting than turning things around.”
Pierce Brosnan, a former Bond himself, disagrees, commenting in 2019: “I think we’ve watched guys do it for the last 40 years, step aside, guys, and put a woman up there.
“I think that would be exhilarating, that would be exciting.”

Just last year, Craig also weighed in on the contentious discussion, where he fell on the same side as Green and de Armas.
“The answer is very simple. There should simply be better roles for women and actors of color. Why should a woman play James Bond when there should be a role as good as James Bond, but for a woman ?” he said.
