There is a saying that “sometimes the best man for a job is a woman.” But when it comes to playing James Bond, it is not.
In an interview with Variety, published on Wednesday, British franchise producer Barbara Broccoli reiterates that the famed super spy, created by Ian Fleming, will always be played by a man onscreen.

Daniel Craig reprises his role of Bond on the big screen for the fifth and final time in the upcoming 25th film No Time to Die. Fellow white actors Sean Connery, David Niven, George Lazenby, Timothy Dalton, Roger Moore and Pierce Brosnan played the character in past movies.
However, No Time to Die, does feature an actress in a unique role; Lashana Lynch plays an agent named Nomi who is given Bond’s famous code number. It is set to be released April 10.
