Game of Thrones star is 'top choice to be next James Bond'

Once Daniel Craig retires his 007 role, Eon Productions will need a new James Bond.

Rumors have swirled that the new Bond could be Idris Elba or possibly Tom Hiddleston, but now a new name has entered the frame.

Richard Madden of Game of Thrones and Bodyguard fame has been added to the short list of possible super spy contenders.

Uproxx reports that Madden is set to be offered the chance to replace Daniel Craig as James Bond, with the offer likely to come 'within days'.
