Meet the Actress Playing Bond 25’s New 007: Lashana Lynch

How exciting?!

A black woman will assume the newest 007 in the next installment in the James Bond series, Bond 25 (2020). Meet Jamaican-born British actress Lashana Lynch, 31. She is best known for her role as a fighter pilot Maria Rambeau in Captain Marvel.

Many have wondered who would carry on the legacy after Daniel Craig especially because the role has been played by white men. Many were suggesting Idris Elba portray the new 007, however, Lynch makes history as the first black actress to adopt the 007 code name.

Now according to reports, Bond will still be played by Daniel Craig, however, Lynch’s character Nomi “will be introduced with Bond’s secret agent number after he retires from MI6.”

A source tells Daily Mail:

“It’s a popcorn-dropping moment. Bond is still Bond but he’s been replaced as 007 by this stunning woman.”
