Could Gillian Anderson be the next James Bond?


Gillian Anderson has indicated that she's up for starring as the first female James Bond.

Showbiz sites are buzzing about who will slip into 007´s tux following reports that Daniel Craig is vacating the role, and it seems Gillian fancies herself as a contender.

She has re-tweeted a mocked up Bond poster of herself as the secret agent with the hashtag #NextBond, declaring: "It's Bond. Jane Bond."

Male stars rumoured to be in the running for the coveted part include Idris Elba, Damian Lewis and Tom Hiddleston.

But plenty of fans are keen on X-Files star Gillian giving the role a feminine touch.
