No Time To Die Actress Ana De Armas Shares Her Opinion On Female ‘Bond’

Ana, who played the role of Paloma in the latest Bond instalment, shared that there's no need for a female Bond.

Ana de Armas has shared her opinion on the question of whether there should be a female Bond role. In a recent interview, the actress said that there’s no need for a female Bond. However, Ana de Armas’s opinion on the matter is particularly noteworthy, as she starred in last year’s No Time to Die. She explained her point while noting, “There shouldn’t be any need to steal someone else’s character, you know, to take over.”

De Armas continued, “This is a novel, and it leads into this James Bond world and this fantasy of that universe where he’s at.” Rather than seeing a female Bond, the actress shared that she would like to see roles with more substance for women. The Gray Man actress added, “What I would like is that the female roles in the Bond films, even though Bond will continue to be a man, are brought to life in a different way.”

Ana, who played the role of Paloma in the latest Bond instalment, added that her hope is future women will be ‘given a more substantial part and recognition. That’s what I think is more interesting than flipping things.’ Fans liked her part in 2021’s film, which was Daniel Craig’s last run as James Bond. After the movie debuted, fans took to their social media to praise her, hoping that she’ll return to reprise the role.

No Time To Die follows James Bond, who is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica after leaving active service. However, his peace is short-lived as his old CIA friend, Felix Leiter, shows up and asks for help. The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond on the trail of a mysterious villain who’s armed with dangerous new technology.

Ana’s latest project is The Gray Man. She starred in the action-packed Netflix movie alongside Ryan Gosling and Chris Evans. In the new Netflix movie, the actress stars as CIA agent Dani Miranda who had to undergo intense training to perform the stunts. A recently shared video showed her in a black crop top and skintight leggings, as she demonstrated a fight scene with a gun. In a tweet, she said, ‘I still run like a chicken. But, I wanna thank the incredible stunts team who helped me train and get ready for this incredibly demanding role.’
