The 33-year-old Grammy-winner has revealed she actually would like to see ‘Loki’ actor Jonathan Major replace Daniel Craig as 007, but because he’s American, her second choice is Idris Elba, who has previously been tipped to take on the iconic role as the fictional suave spy in the blockbuster franchise.
Speaking to Vogue for their ’73 Questions’ series, the ‘Easy On Me’ hitmaker said: “I mean it’s a tough one there have been lots of different choices and stuff. But I would like Jonathan Major to be the next Bond. But I don’t know if that’s allowed because he’s American. But I think Idris Elba.”
Idris sent fans into a frenzy back in 2018 when he tweeted a selfie with the caption ‘My name’s Elba, Idris Elba”, which sparked speculation he was being lined up for the part.However, he quickly quashed the rumours.He wrote: “Don’t believe the HYPE…”
Daniel, 53, took his Aston Martin for a spin for the final time in ‘No Time To Die’ but recently shot down suggestions that a woman should take over from him as 007, as he believes “better parts” should be created for actresses instead.
