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.
CAN YOU IMAGINE GILLIAN ANDERSON AS THE FIRST FEMALE JAMES BOND?? Because I do.

Gillian Anderson as the next Bond would be great. I mean 007 is just a title, and James Bond is just a codename. Bond, Johanna Bond.
