Daniel Craig thinks about the future of the saga
And it is that we have been listening to all kinds of rumors for a long time about the possibility that James Bond, the classic character that has been an icon of cinema for decades, happens to be played by a black actor or a woman, waking up all kinds of opinions among the fans of the mythical 007. Now, Daniel Craig has shared his opinion about the future of the British spy.
According to Craig, James Bond should always be played by a Caucasian-looking man: “The answer is very simple. There simply should be better roles for women and performers of color.
