Dominic West Suggests Next James Bond Actor Be Transgender

Dominic West is a British actor who has been linked to the iconic role of James Bond in the past and now he has a cool casting idea for the next Bond.

The 49-year-old The Affair actor says he’d like to see a transgender actor play the role!

Dominic brought up Hannah Graf, the highest-ranking transgender soldier in the British Army. He knows her as he worked with Hannah‘s husband Jake in the film Collette.

“She’s a beautiful girl who could be Bond. That’s actually a brilliant idea. They should have a transgender Bond because there are a lot of transgender people in the army,” Dominic told Sunday Times Magazine.

“I’m very flattered that Dominic thought of me,” Hannah said in response to the casting idea. “I don’t think I’m going to become an actress anytime soon, but there’s no reason why there shouldn’t be a transgender Bond. We’ve seen too many men in hero-type roles and women playing second fiddle.”

A new Bond is needed as Daniel Craig will make his final appearance in the franchise in the next film.

There has often been talk about Sam Heughan playing James Bond in the future, but did you know he auditioned to play the role long before his Outlander days?

The 38-year-old actor talked about his former audition during an appearance on Live! with Kelly and Ryan on Thursday (November 1) in New York City.

“You say the best things,” Sam said when the hosts suggested him for the part. “Have I thought about it? Yeah, I have a few times. I did audition for Bond a long time ago when they were redoing it with Daniel Craig, when he was Bond 21. They were going to go younger with him and it was a pretty good experience. And it’s about time we got a Scottish Bond.”

'Outlander' Author Endorses Sam Heughan for James Bond!

A few months ago, Just Jared ran a poll asking fans who they wanted as the next James Bond, and Outlander star Sam Heughan won the poll!

Diana Gabaldon, who wrote the Outlander novels, is totally on board with the idea of Sam playing the super-spy once Daniel Craig is done.

“I have seen that Sam is being tipped for James Bond and I think it would be great,” Diana told the Scotsman.

Sam would do a fine job of it. There is always a lot of talk every time James Bond changes so it’s anybody’s guess. But I don’t think he would have to leave Outlander to be James Bond because the Bond movies are just that, they’re movies,” he added.

Outlander is a television show so it would just be a matter of scheduling,” Diana continued.

Sam then responded on Twitter to Diana‘s kind words!
