X-Files Alum Throws Her Support Behind a Female Bond
The tug of war between Bond fans on who should replace Daniel Craig as the titular character for the next film has Idris Elba on one site, and Tom Hiddleston on the other. ut a new fan petition making the rounds is suggesting something just as revolutionary, if not more so, than having Elba become the first non-white Bond.
This particular petition is staking a claim for some girl power, with X-Files star Gillian Anderson as their female Bond. The actress has thrown her support behind the petition, which was created by an unknown social media user.
“It’s Bond. Jane Bond. Thanks for all the votes! (And sorry, don’t know who made the poster, but I love it!) #NextBond.” Anderson had to say via Twitter. The 47 year-old, American-born actress to this day describes London as her home, having spent much of her childhood there.
Her profile has been kicked up considerably following the revival of X-Files, coming after her recurring role in the now cancelled Hannibal. It probably isn't a serious chance of happening, but a female Bond would be something worth tuning in to. It certainly holds new potential that would elevate cinema toward defying expectations to dramatically change the blockbuster horizon.
If Bond can change genders, then anything can happen.
