It's time for a woman to play 007, Pierce Brosnan says


Pierce Brosnan, who played James Bond between 1994 and 2005, thinks it would be "exhilarating" to have a woman play 007.

The World Is Not Enough star quipped that the guys should "get out of the way".

"Yes! I think we've watched the guys do it for the last 40 years, get out of the way, guys, and put a woman up there. I think it would be exhilarating, it would be exciting."

And the 66-year-old actor thinks the Bond movies will have to change with the times following the #MeToo movement.

Pierce has a "deep pride" about having played James Bond.

He told the Hollywood Reporter: "James Bond has a certain significance and a deep pride. I will be asked about him until my dying days - it just goes with the territory. He's a beloved character. I was honoured to play the role and I rejuvenated a franchise that had been dormant."
