She’s the highest-ranking transgender solder in the British Army, who Dominic has described as a ‘beautiful’ girl. DOMINIC West had called for the next James Bond to be transgender.
The Wire actor has suggested that the leading role should be taken by Hannah Graf, the highest-ranking transgender soldier in the army.
The actor met Hannah when her husband Jake starred in Colette alongside Dominic.
Hannah said that she was “flattered” by Dominic’s idea.
She said: “I’m very flattered that Dominic thought of me.
“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.”
He said: “Of course I would [take it], but I don’t think I will be [offered the role].”
Here’s everything we know about the next James Bond film.
The next Bond movie is currently in pre-production.
So far, what we do know is that the movie will be directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga.
He previously directed Netflix hit Maniac, True Detective and Hane Eyre among many others.
The director of the movie recently revealed that the storyline would follow the character arc that started with Casino Royale.
Speaking to The Inquirer, he said: “In terms of what I can bring to change the character, Bond is on a character arc that started with Casino Royale, and I will be carrying that on.
“There will be changes, I am sure. As in any story, a character has to change in order [to have] a narrative.”
