007: Luke Evans says he would jump at the chance to play the next Bond
Luke Evans is keen to play the next James Bond
The Welsh Actor and Singer, Luke Evans said he would love to play James Bond when Daniel Craig steps down from the role after 'No time to Die'
If he landed the role it would make Mr Evans the second Welshman to take on the iconic role, following Timothy Dalton.
In an interview with the Daily Mirror he said: “I think I’ve cut my teeth very well in movies I’ve done and I’ve enjoyed every second of it. It’s a phenomenal job, a phenomenal franchise, an incredible role. I have to say though, it’s a daunting task for any actor to play the role after Daniel Craig. No one knows what’s happening.”
The 42 year old actor added: “It’s a very secretive process and it’s a wonderful role. I would jump at the chance, as would many actors in my position, so we shall see.”
Luke's previous credits include: Disney's Beauty and the Beast, Netflix's The Alienist and ITV's Prembrokshire Murders.
Current favourites to play Bond include Idris Elba, Tom Hiddleston, James Norton, and Sam Heughan.
Bond producer Barbara Broccoli previously said she won't start looking for Craig's replacement until No Time to Die has been released.
