“It’s Bond. Jane Bond.”;
“The X Files”; star Gillian Anderson has found herself caught in the middle of the fan-fuelled hunt for the next James Bond. As the producers of the major movie franchise search to fill the seemingly vacant shoes of Daniel Craig, fans have positioned Anderson as the next possible choice.
The 47-year-old actress shared a fan mock-up poster featuring herself as the next Bond, tweeting to her 50,000 Twitter followers.

Anderson, who was born in America but spent a large portion of her childhood in London, joins a long list of actors who have become popular choices to front the much-loved series over the past few months. Some of these actors include Idris Elba, Henry Cavill, Tom Hardy, Michael Fassbender, and Tom Hiddleston.
Following his performance in “Spectre”; in 2015, Craig reportedly rejected a £68 million offer to star in two new Bond films and told The Daily Mail that he was “done playing Bond.”;
While the franchise has never had a female lead, Craig said he would be in favour of a female Bond. The actor previously said, “I think it’s a great idea. If it works, it works. That’s the great thing about film — it’s all about imagination. So of course it could happen. That’s not me giving it a big push, it’s just that anything is possible.”;
