- Gal Gadot addresses the idea of a female actor playing James Bond
- She supports more opportunities for women in the spy genre
- Gadot believes that a woman can create her own legacy instead of taking over Bond’s character
In a recent interview, Gal Gadot tackled the topic of a potential female James Bond and emphasized the need for more representation of women in the spy genre. The actress, known for her popular portrayal of Wonder Woman, was asked if she would like to see a female actor take over the iconic 007 role.
Gadot responded, “I think that there are so many other cool stories to tell in this universe and I think if we can create more female-driven original content, that would be even cooler than trying to take the trousers off of James Bond and put them on a woman.” She implied that instead of focusing on having Bond be played by a woman, it would be more progressive to develop new, empowering stories for female characters in the genre.
The entertainer stresses the importance of creating unique legacies for women in the form of original characters, rather than solely attempting to fit them into the already-established role of James Bond. Gadot’s call for an increased presence of women in the spy genre serves as a reminder of the progress that can be made when diverse stories are developed and celebrated.
