Eva Green doesn't want female Bond Content Exchange

Eva Green insists a female James Bond wouldn't "make sense".

The 38-year-old actress - who portrayed Vesper Lynd in 2006's 'Casino Royale' - is "for women" but she believes the gender of the iconic role shouldn't change when her former co-star Daniel Craig steps down as the suave spy.

She told Variety: "I'm for women, but I really think James Bond should remain a man. It doesn't make sense for him to be a woman.

"Women can play different types of characters, be in action movies and be superheroes, but James Bond should always be a man and not be Jane Bond."

The 'Dumbo' star believes it is important to stay true to the "history" of 007.

She added: "There is history with the character that should continue. He should be played by a man."

Eva's comments come after Dominic West previously suggested Hannah Graf the highest-ranked transgender soldier in the British army - should take over the role as he thinks a transgender Bond would be "cool".

Asked about the idea of a female Bond, he said: "Well ...I think some of these things are gender specific. So I don't see it myself.

"Maybe a transgender Bond would be cool. Yes, there's a very cool woman who's the wife of an actor [Jake Graf] in 'Colette', who is a captain in the electrical engineers, the highest-ranking transgender soldier in the army.

"She's done two tours of Afghanistan. She's a beautiful blonde girl who could be Bond, yes. That's actually a brilliant idea. T

"They should have a transgender Bond because there are a lot of transgender people in the army.

"They'd be ideal because they can do everything. That's a great idea! A transgender Bond."
