Dame Judi Dench has stated that she believes that Tom Hiddleston is the man with everything to make a great James Bond. She has seven Bond movies behind her (her last was Skyfall)
She was of course the ever present M in movies with two incarnations of the super-spy,Daniel Craig and Pierce Brosnan
The actress is a veteran of seven 007 films, starring as British spy chief M alongside two previous Bond actors, Pierce Brosnan and Daniel Craig.
In London at Sundays prestigious Olivier Awards she responded to a BBC interviewer who asked if Tom was a viable candidate for Bond was told
“I would have thought so,” and “I was there for Pierce’s first day and Daniel’s first day – and you see the whites of their eyes. It’s a huge mantle to take on but you’re very well looked after.”
This is all a bit premature in my opinion as the current Bond.. James Bond, Daniel Craig has not actually said that he will not be back in the next movie.
Oh and Miss Dench became the winner of her 8th Olivier award last Sunday making her the most honoured Oliver winner ever.
