Everybody is eagerly anticipating the cinematic release of ‘Spectre’, but whilst Daniel Craig continues to be moody, and everyone continues to speculate as to who will fill his suit for the next installment, some of you may have missed a little quote from a certain actress regarding future Bond films.
Jessica Chastain is one of our favourite actresses here at JumpCut UK, so when her name was linked with 007 on our newsfeed today we immediately got excited. In a recent interview, the American actress revealed that her life’s ambition is to play a Bond villain. She has however dismissed the possibility of ever playing a Bond girl in the future, when she said: “people ask me if I want to be a Bond girl, and I say, no, I want to be the villain. I’m waiting for that call”. There have been plenty of female Bond villains in the past, but it’s been almost two decades since Sophie Marceau played Elektra in 1999’s ‘The World Is Not Enough’. So we can all agree that it’s about time that another female stepped into the role of Bond villain, and here at JumpCut UK we can think of no one better for the role than Miss Chastain.
