After Priyanka Chopra announced her desire to play James Bond, the actress clarified her qualifications in an interview with TheWrap on Monday.
“I don’t think Bond does too much, he’s just suave and sexy,” the “Quantico” star told TheWrap’s Stuart Brazell. “He rolls out with his martini and fancy cars. Wow, it sounds like my life already.”
Chopra sent fans into a frenzy on Monday when a social media-friendly quote from her Complex cover story went viral. While discussing the possibility of playing a Bond girl in one of the franchise’s upcoming films, the actress said, “F–k that–I wanna be Bond.”
And if the actor to take up the mantle from current 007, Daniel Craig, were to be a woman, that doesn’t mean the character’s name has to change. In fact, Chopra says it absolutely should not.
“It has to be James,” she said. “It’s so hot.”
