Christoph Waltz comments on future Blofeld and female 007

22-Dec-2017 • Bond 25

Actor Christoph Waltz, who was revealed (to no surprise) as playing Blofeld in the last James Bond film 'SPECTRE,' recently revealed he will not be reprising the role in the future. He again confirmed that in a long interview with Mr Porter.

He also had some commentary about the hubbub surrounding a possible female 007:

He’s playfully incensed when I suggest that in the post-Weinstein era a female Bond might have some merit. “Why? Because [Italian feminist journalist] Oriana Fallaci said so? Come on. Have your own movie if you want. Why does it have to be James Bond? What would be her first name? Jemima? My answer is decidedly not.”
