British actor Tom Hiddleston has reignited speculation over whether he could be the next 007, taking the reins from Daniel Craig. Hiddleston has said that playing the famous British spy would be an “extraordinary opportunity” if it “ever came knocking.”
Speaking to The Sunday Times, the actor revealed he was a huge fan of the series, stating: “We all went to see Spectre when we were shooting Skull Island in Hawaii. I simply love the theme tune, the tropes and the mythology. I love the whole thing. If it ever came knocking, it would be an extraordinary opportunity”.
Hiddleston, who is currently starring in the BBC adaptation of The Night Manager, added: “And I’m very aware of the physicality of the job. I would not take it lightly“. While nothing has been confirmed, it will be interesting to see whether the actor will gain the iconic role of James Bond himself.
