22-Mar-2023 • Bond 26
The tabloids are taking a break from trying to guess who will take over the James Bond role from Daniel Craig and have turned their attention to another MI6 regular.
According to The Sun, British comedy actress Daisy May Cooper is being eyed to take over M. The unlikely idea is supposedly fueled by her friendship with Phoebe Waller-Bridge, who is said to be consulting on Bond 26.
A 'source' told the paper: “Daisy is a close pal of Phoebe, whose involvement in Bond was such a success that it sparked an unlikely conversation. Suddenly the production team were getting excited about the prospect of really taking ‘M’ in a different direction. With Daniel leaving, it seemed the time to start looking at changes across the board and the dynamic between Bond and ‘M’ is at the heart of the films. So this opens the door to it being a bit lighter and more comedic going forwards — and will of course impact the direction the new 007 goes in too."
